Russia and the United States reported on arms exports in 2010In October-November 2010, immediately two big players on the world market of arms and military equipment reported their own exports. Namely, the U.S. announced that this year set a limit for the amount of weapons over 30 billion dollars. Our homeland has shown more modest result — about 10 billion dollars. These characteristics are markedly increased in comparison with previous years, allowing you to read the release from the military industry crisis.

The global financial and economic crisis that began in the autumn of 2008, served as a prerequisite for reducing the budgets of different levels of many countries in the world, making them the Ministry of Defence tried to greatly reduce military spending. As a result, the global arms market started stagnating. Thus, in the period from 2000 to 2007 there was a steady increase in global trade weapon. By 2007, the world military market rose to 48.488 billion dollars.

In the next two years, growth was insignificant. For example, in 2008 the volume of world arms market was 49.103 billion dollars, and in 2009 — 50,204,000,000 dollars. According to the forecast of the Center for Analysis of World Trade instrument, 2010 will be a record in the history of commerce tool — the global market for the year will amount to 75.026 billion dollars. This figure was based on the prices of existing contracts, and perhaps will be less likely because of the backlog of military supplies from the schedule.

Usually, in high demand in the world enjoys aviation technology, while at the fighters have most of the market. For example, in 2009 fraction of fighters in the world arms market, according to SIPRI, was about 33 percent. Second place in terms of sales technique is defense, and the third — armament for the Army and Navy.

Read about rassredotachivanii exports by countries so far in advance, as the year is not yet completed and signed military agreements often falls on the last few months. Yet, two big players in the global arms market has already reported on their own zabugornyh military supplies — in fact one and the other — the forecast.

So, November 10, 2010 Office of Military Cooperation (DSCA) U.S. Department of Defense announced that the South American exports of arms and military equipment, the third year in a row exceeded 30 billion dollars. In 2010 monetary year ending September 30 of this year, the figure was 31.6 billion dollars. Naikrupneyshimi buyers of South American guns were Afghanistan, Israel and Egypt, who have spent on it 4.7, 4 and 2.6 billion dollars respectively.

DSCA maintains records zabugornyh military supplies on two fronts — the band zabugornyh military supplies (FMS) and direct contracts. FMS involves the sale of guns by intergovernmental agreements brokered by DSCA. For this band volume of arms exports amounted to 25.2 billion U.S. dollars, while the other 6.4 billion dollars fell on direct contracts for the supply of weapons to South American companies.

U.S. is the largest exporter of naikrupneyshim military products. According to the Stockholm Institute international research problems of the world, the share of the U.S. in the global arms market in 2009 was 30 percent. Our homeland on this indicator takes the second place with 24 percent, Germany — third with 11 percent, France — fourth with eight percent, while Britain — with 4 percent.

So Makar, in value terms, the United States in 2010, took nearly 42 percent of the global arms market. It must be emphasized that in terms of military equipment the figure would probably significantly less, as a South American instrument is the most expensive on the market. For example, in 2009 in value terms fraction of the U.S. in the international market was about 60 percent. Meanwhile, according to the Institute of the Stockholm international peace research problems (SIPRI), shred the U.S. on the world market in 2009 was 30 percent. SIPRI has calculated this figure based not only on the price of weapons and military equipment, and taking into account their actual deliveries.

Over the past Cash year The U.S. sold Columbia Helicopters UH-60L Black Hawk, Turkey — AH-1W SuperCobra, Australia — CH-47F Chinook, and Iraq — F-16 fighter Fighting Falcon. In addition, the U.S. supplied anti-aircraft missile systems to Taiwan Patriot Advanced Capability — 3 (PAC-3). In addition to these instruments are also entered into a number of agreements for the supply of unmanned aerial vehicles, various ships, tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers, as contracts for the modernization of aviation and marine equipment.

As for the Russian Federation, in late October 2010, the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation has announced that in 2010, Russian exports of arms and equipment to be about 10 billion dollars. More precisely, in view of existing contracts, this amount reached 9.958 billion dollars. According to the General Director of "Rosoboronexport" Anatoly Isaikina, the implementation of Russian weapons grow 11 minutes year in a row, "500-700 million dollars" a year. Deliveries of Russian weapons and military equipment are carried out in 70 countries in the world.

"If earlier the bulk of exports went to China and India — to 80 percent, but now the structure has changed, there were other countries that purchase our gun. Currently 10 states account for more than 90 percent of such deliveries," — said Isaykin. In value terms, the RF fraction of the global market in 2010 may be about 13 percent, but taking into account the actual volume of deliveries of military equipment the figure will be more than possible.

Specifically, in 2009 the fraction of the Russian Federation in the global arms market in value terms was 17.5 percent. In the past year limit for Russian weapons were supplied by 8.8 billion dollars, of which 7.4 billion dollars — on the strip "Rosoboronexport". At the same time, SIPRI estimated share of the Russian Federation in the global market of 24 per cent — the second-highest after the United States. This is justified by the fact that the Russian gun is cheaper South American, but is in great demand, especially among countries with developing economies.

Since the beginning of 2010 Our homeland has entered into several export contracts, including the supply of 6 trainer aircraft Yak-130 to Libya, 29 MiG-29K — in India, Mi-171E — in Argentina and six Su-30MK2 — in Uganda. In addition, the signed export agreements to sell 32 Su-30MK2 fighters to Vietnam, five Mi-17 helicopters Poland, and 38 anti-aircraft missile and gun systems, "Armour-C1" Algeria. In addition, contracts were signed for the modernization of military equipment.

It must be emphasized that in the future, the more likely a greater growth in the global market of weapons and military equipment. This increase in this index course will be achieved through the United States. Namely, October 8, 2010, in other words, already in fiscal year 2011, Israel had acquired the U.S. F-20 fighter jets 35 Lightning II for a total amount of 2.75 billion dollars. In addition, at the expense of military exports in 2011 may go and contracts with Saudi Arabia to supply weapons and military equipment.

Recall Saudi Arabia from August 2010 is in talks with the U.S. on the supply of various military equipment and ammunition for a total of 60 billion dollars. Namely, it is about supply 70 helicopters Apache Block III, 72 Black Hawk, 36 AH-6i and 84 fighters F-15SA. Likely to contract for the full amount of the order will not be signed for another year, but the conclusion of even a part of the United States will allow them to significantly improve their own military export. In general, according to the DSCA, contracts with Saudi Arabia, South American companies will provide work for the coming 15-20 years.

Russia's position in the global arms market in 2011 did not actually change. In February 2010, the Director of FSMTC Misha Dmitriev said that the yearly military Russian export in the coming few years will be held at the level of 10.9 billion dollars. According to TSAMTO, the amount of existing contracts can imagine that in 2011 the volume of world arms market will be more than 62.9 billion dollars.
