World military expenditure reached $1531 billion in 2009, a 6 per cent real-terms increase. The global economic crisis had little noticeable impact on military spending, with increases by 14 of the 15 top spenders. The new Obama Administration has not halted rising US military spending, although there has been some change in focus. In many developing regions, increased natural resource revenues have contributed to rapidly increased military spending, although falls in commodity prices slowed this trend in 2009. The conflict in Afghanistan is proving increasingly costly for countries involved.
