SIPRI has identified 155 countries as importers of major arms in 2014–18. In addition, three international organizations and six non-state rebel forces received arms in 2014–18. The five largest arms importers in 2014–18—Saudi Arabia, India, Egypt, Australia and Algeria—accounted for 35 per cent of total arms imports (see table 5.6). Of these, Saudi Arabia and India were among the top five importers in both 2009–13 and 2014–18. At the regional level, Asia and Oceania accounted for 40 per cent of imports in 2014–18, followed by the Middle East (35 per cent), Europe (11 per cent), Africa (7.8 per cent) and the Americas (6.2 per cent).
