Table 9.7 ranks the world’s 25 largest arms-producing and military services companies (‘arms companies’ for short) by their arms sales in 2019—the latest year for which relevant data is available (see box 9.2). The arms sales of the top 25 arms companies totalled US$361 billion in 2019. This represents an increase of 8.5 per cent compared with 2018 and 15 per cent compared with 2015. Of the 25 companies included in SIPRI’s ranking, 19 recorded higher arms sales in 2019 than in the previous year.1
