SIPRI has identified 63 states as exporters of major arms in 2018–22. The five largest exporters of arms during that period—the United States, Russia, France, China and Germany—accounted for over three-quarters (76 per cent) of all arms exports (see table 6.2). US and French arms exports rose between 2013–17 and 2018–22, while Russian, Chinese and German arms exports fell. The top 25 arms exporters accounted for 98 per cent of the world’s arms exports in 2018–22. States in North America and Europe together accounted for 87 per cent of all arms exports in the period. The five largest exporters in Western Europe—France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and Spain—supplied around one-quarter (24 per cent) of total global arms exports in 2018–22.
