Paul Holtom

The volume of international arms transfers in the period 2008–12 was 17 per cent higher than in 2003–2007 (see figure 5.1).2 The composition of the five largest suppliers of arms changed between these two periods, with China replacing the United Kingdom as the fifth largest supplier. This represents the first change in the composition of the top five suppliers since the end of the cold war. India was the largest recipient of arms during 2008–12, with China in second place.
