Military services are military-specific services—such as research and analysis, technical services, operational support, and armed force—that were once undertaken by military establishments but have been outsourced to private companies.1 The private military services industry has grown substantially over the past two decades. The SIPRI Top 100 arms-producing and military services companies for 2010 includes 20 companies categorized as primarily military services providers; their combined military-related sales in 2010 totalled $55 billion (see table 5.3). This is a 147 per cent real-terms increase in sales since 2002, when the SIPRI Top 100 included 20 military services companies with combined military sales of $22 billion (in constant 2010 dollars).2 While this was a major increase, the annual rate of growth in sales of these military services slowed in 2009 and 2010.
