SIPRI has identified 60 states as exporters of major arms in 2017–21.1 The five largest suppliers of arms during that period—the United States, Russia, France, China and Germany—accounted for 77 per cent of all arms exports (see table 9.1). This is slightly higher than in 2012–16 and 2007–11, when the top five—the same five states—accounted for 74 per cent in both periods. US and French arms exports rose between 2012–16 and 2017–21, while Russian, Chinese and German arms exports fell.
