SIPRI has identified 68 states as exporters of major arms in the five-year period 2015–19.1 The five largest suppliers of arms during that period—the United States, Russia, France, Germany and China—accounted for 76 per cent of all arms exports (see table 9.1). The top five in 2015–19 were the same as in 2010–14 but the combined total of their exports of major arms was 9.5 per cent higher. The exports of four of these five increased—those of France at the greatest rate (72 per cent)—while Russia’s arms exports fell.
