The global total military expenditure of US$1917 billion in 2019 was not evenly distributed among the world’s regions.1 One region—the Americas—accounted for more than two-fifths (43 per cent) of the world total. This was followed by Asia and Oceania with 27 per cent and Europe with 19 per cent. The Middle East is estimated to have accounted for about 9.4 per cent of the total.2 Spending by African countries was the lowest of all the regions, with only 2.1 per cent of global military expenditure in 2019.
