This Country Buys the Most Weapons From the US Government


To determine the countries buying the most weapons from the U.S. government, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed data on the value of arms exports from the United States to other countries from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute’s Arms Transfers Database. Countries were ranked based on the total value of arms exports received from the United States from 2010 to 2020. Arms data covers actual deliveries of major conventional weapons. Supplemental data on arms imports from the U.S. as a share of a country’s total arms imports was calculated using data from SIPRI. Data on the largest arms suppliers by total value from 2016 to 2020, as well as national military expenditure in 2020 and national military expenditure as a percentage of gross domestic product in 2020 came from SIPRI.
