The financial crisis and recession have not had a significant negative impact on the arms industry. Arms sales in 2008 continued their upward trend and an initial assessment of 2009 company statements shows strong results for their military segments for that year also. Furthermore, regional shares remained stable in 2008, indicating that no particular region experienced a negative impact from the early effects of the crisis. There are several factors that contribute to the continuity despite a global financial crisis and recession, including high levels of military expenditure, the inherent characteristics of the arms industry and the ongoing conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq.
