SIPRI has identified 163 states as importers of major arms in 2017–21.1 The top five arms importers—India, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Australia and China—together received 38 per cent of total arms imports in 2017–21 (see table 9.5). India, Saudi Arabia and China were also among the top five importers in 2012–16, and India and China were among the top five importers in 2007–11. At the regional level, Asia and Oceania accounted for 43 per cent of arms imports in 2017–21 (see table 9.6), followed by the Middle East (32 per cent), Europe (13 per cent), Africa (5.8 per cent) and the Americas (5.5 per cent).
