It’s no surprise that the biggest five military spenders in 2017, were the United States, China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, and India — together accounting for 60 percent of total global defence spending, according to a global arms spending report by SIPRI. Across the globe, military spending was estimated at $1.73 trillion.

Dominated by the United State and China, which spent $610 billion and $228 billion last year respectively – the list of the biggest military spenders in the world has remained largely consistent in recent years. India’s defence spending rose by 5.5% to $63.9 billion in 2017 and has now passed France.
