List of Countries by Military Expenditures

Posted on Feb 19 2014 - 2:54am by Admin

A list of countries by military expenditure, the amount spent by a nation on its military in a given year. Military expenditure figures are presented in US$ based on either constant or current exchange rates. These results can vary greatly from one year to another based on fluctuations in the exchange rates of each country’s currency.

Such fluctuations may change a country’s ranking from one year to the next. Currently, the world’s six largest military spenders are the United States, China, Russia, the United Kingdom, Japan and France, all of whom are recognized as world powers. The UK, US, Russia, China and France are all veto-wielding permanent members of the United Nations Security Council.

The first list is based on the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) Yearbook 2013 which includes a list on the world’s top 15 military spenders in 2012, based on current market exchange rates. The second list is based on the SIPRI military expenditure database for the year 2012, again based on current market exchange rates.

SIPRI ( estimate.
 The figures for Saudi Arabia include expenditure for public order and safety and might be slightly overestimated.
 It is possible that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) would be in 15th position in place of Turkey, but data is not available for the UAE in 2012.
