The volume of international transfers of major arms in 2018–22 was 5.1 per cent lower than in 2013–17, but was 3.9 per cent higher than in 2008–12 and 27 per cent higher than in 1998–2002 when arms transfers were at their lowest volume for any successive five-year period since 1958–62 (see figure 6.1 and box 6.1).1 However, the total volume in 2018–22 was still around 35 per cent lower than the peak reached in the periods 1978–82 and 1983–87, at the height of the cold war.2
