The volume of international transfers of major weapons grew by 16 per cent between 2005–2009 and 2010–14 (see section I). The five largest suppliers in 2010–14—the United States, Russia, China, Germany and France—accounted for 74 per cent of the total global volume of exports. The USA and Russia (or the Soviet Union before 1992) have been consistently by far the largest suppliers since 1950. They have dominated the top 10 list of suppliers together with Western European suppliers, and there is no sign of any major change in the near future. However, China has now firmly established itself as one of the top five suppliers: in 2010–14 it was the third largest supplier, narrowly surpassing Germany and France.
