The SIPRI Top 100 lists the world's 100 largest arms-producing and military services companies (excluding Chinese companies), ranked by their arms sales in 2011. Sales of arms and services by companies in the SIPRI Top 100 totalled $410 billion in 2011. In comparison with the Top 100 companies in 2010 (which is a slightly different set of companies), the 2011 arms sales represent a 5 per cent decrease in real terms (see table 4.4). The decrease in arms sales by the SIPRI Top 100 companies in 2011 is due to several factors, including the drawdown in Iraq and the United Nations embargo on arms transfers to Libya; programme delays due to austerity-related military spending cuts and related postponements in weapon programme commitments (see section I above); and the weak US dollar in many countries in 2011.1
