Table 5A.4 lists the world’s 100 largest arms-producing companies (excluding Chinese companies), ranked by their arms sales in 2009—the SIPRI Top 100 for 2009. The companies in the SIPRI Top 100 account for the majority of the global financial value of military goods and services—in particular, high-technology systems and services. Because of a lack of comparable financial data, the SIPRI Top 100 does not cover all arms-producing countries. However, with a few exceptions, the volume of arms production in omitted countries is believed to be relatively small. Chinese companies would almost certainly appear in the Top 100 (and probably in the top 50) if satisfactory data were available. Apart from the omission of China, analysis of the companies in the Top 100 is sufficient to capture the major trends in the global arms industry.
