SIPRI has identified 65 states as exporters of major arms in the five-year period 2016–20.1 The five largest suppliers of arms during that period—the United States, Russia, France, Germany and China—accounted for 76 per cent of all arms exports (see table 9.1). This is slightly higher than in 2011–15 and 2006–10, when the top five accounted for 73 per cent of the global total. France had the highest increase in arms exports among the top five. US and German arms exports also grew, while Russian and Chinese arms exports decreased. The composition of the top five changed between 2011–15 and 2016–20, with Germany replacing the United Kingdom.
