The volume of international transfers of major arms in 2016–20 was at almost the same level as in 2011–15 and remained at its highest level since the end of the cold war (see section I). However, the volume of transfers in 2016–20 was still 35 per cent lower than the peak reached in 1981–85, at the height of the cold war. Overall, the Covid‑19 pandemic of 2020 and the resulting economic crisis appeared to have little effect on arms deliveries in 2020 or on new orders for major arms during the year.
