In general, the arms sales of companies in the Top 100 remained high in 2009. The total arms sales of the SIPRI Top 100 increased by $14.8 billion to reach $400.7 billion in 2009.
In 2009 for the first time a Kuwaiti company—the military services company Agility—entered the Top 100, at rank 34. The arms sales of some of the largest Russian arms producers fell, even as the Russian Government continued to invest in the industry.
Figures refer to the arms sales of Top 100 companies headquartered in each country or region, including those of their foreign subsidiaries, not the sales of arms actually produced in that country or region.
