Sales of arms and military services by the SIPRI Top 100—a ranking of the world’s largest arms-producing and military services companies (excluding China) according to arms sales—totalled almost $375 billion in 2016, a 1.9 per cent increase compared with 2015 (see table 5.7).1 This is the first year-on-year real-terms rise in Top 100 arms sales since they reached a peak of $420 billion in 2010, which was followed by five consecutive years of decline. Despite the growth in 2016, the total arms sales of the Top 100 were still 13 per cent lower than those of 2010. However, they were 38 per cent higher than those of 2002, the year when SIPRI began reporting corporate arms sales.
