Military spending in 2010 reached $1630 billion, an increase of 1.3 per cent in real terms, a slower rate of increase than in recent years. Key regional powers such as Brazil, China, India, Russia, South Africa and Turkey, whose strong economic growths are increasing their global political roles, are also seeking to develop their military capabilities, often involving rapidly rising military spending. The drivers of military spending in these countries vary, including current and potential conflicts, concern over the United States’ military dominance, or desire for status. In some cases this creates tension between military spending and social and economic development goals.
