The increase in military expenditure in Africa in 2011 was the largest of any region, at 8.6 per cent in real terms, reaching an estimated $34.6 billion. Over the period 2002–11, African military spending increased by 65 per cent. The regional increase in 2011 was almost exactly equal to the increase of the region’s largest spender, Algeria. Its military spending increased by 44 per cent to reach $8.7 billion. The picture in the rest of Africa was mixed, with the spending of another 10 African countries increasing or decreasing by more than 10 per cent in real terms (see tables 4.3 and 4.9). The total for sub-Saharan Africa is estimated to have been unchanged in 2011.
