Updated Military Spending Map

We have updated our infographic with the most recent figures available at SIPRI’s military expenditure database (2019).
On April 26, 2021, SIPRI will launch military spending data for the year 2020.

This infographic shows through bubbles the 30 biggest military spenders in the world, drawing data from SIPRI’s Military Expenditure Database. It also displays on the upper side a bar graphic with world total (1.92 trillion USD), and the proportion of this represented by the U.S. (731$b –more than a third), the 7 next biggest spenders (almost another third) and everyone else (the last third).  
NATO aggregated spending is 1.03 trillion $.
The European Union’s aggregated spending is the second highest, after the U.S., and amounts to 268.2 billion $.
