Despite the global financial crisis and economic recession, the arms industry continued to see high levels of arms sales in 2008 and, according to initial assessments, in 2009. Arms sales of the SIPRI Top 100 reached $385 billion in 2008. These increases were in part due to sales of military equipment and services for the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq and to force modernization efforts (e.g. in Russia). While the number of large acquisitions fell in 2009, there was more consolidation in the Israeli, Russian and US industries as well as a continued pattern of arms-producing companies diversifying into the security industry.
