The combined arms sales of the world’s 100 largest arms-producing and military services companies in 2021 (the SIPRI Top 100 for 2021) totalled US$592 billion.1 This represented an annual increase of 1.9 per cent in these companies’ arms sales.2 Arms sales by the Top 100 have been on an upward trajectory since at least 2015 (the first year for which SIPRI included Chinese firms in its ranking) and increased by 19 per cent in real terms between 2015 and 2021 (see table 5.6).
