Ranking states on this indicator characterizes the degree of the importance of arms exports in the overall economy.
Israel is identified by the ratio of military exports to GDP ranks first in the world — 1.01% (exports Weapons and military equipment in the years 2004-2011. amounted to 14.462 billion dollars, the GDP in the same period — 1.43 trillion dollars). In other words, Israel's economy largely depends on the export of arms in comparison with other countries of the world.
Our homeland with the index 0.52% (identified arms exports in 2004-2011. — 50.824 billion dollars, GDP — 9,865,740,000,000 dollars) takes second place.
The top three favorites closes Sweden — 0.32% (identified volume military exports in the years 2004-2011. amounted to 11.158 billion dollars, GDP — 3,486,540,000,000 dollars).
Fourth place is occupied Ukraine — 0.31% (volume of military exports — 3.107 billion dollars, GDP — 1002 billion dollars).
Other naikrupneyshie arms suppliers are taking a more moderate position on this indicator, which states on the least importance to their military exports in the overall balance of the economy.
In particular, France is 8 place with 0.16% (volume of military exports — 31.246 billion dollars, GDP — 19,853,200,000,000 dollars).
U.S. ranks 11th place — 0.12% (volume of military exports 135,046,000,000 dollars, GDP — 109733100000000 dollars).
Britain is ranked 12th — 0.11% (volume of military exports 20.375 billion dollars, GDP — 19,266,500,000,000 dollars).
Germany ranked 13th — 0.10% (volume of military exports 25.096 billion dollars, GDP — 25,546,430,000,000 dollars).
Spain and Italy, with the index 0.07% share 17-18 place.
China with the index 0.02% ranked 32th (military exports — 8,046 billion USD GDP — 33134750000000 dollars.
Of the leading global suppliers of weapons, China has the smallest index of the ratio of military exports to GDP.
Ranking states by the ratio of the volume of export of arms to military spending over the period of 2004-2011 years.
First place by the ratio of exports of military to military expenditure over the period 2004-2011. Ukraine is a measure of 30.24%. Second place is occupied by Sweden (25.07%). Switzerland closes the top three (18.67%). Our homeland with the indicator is 17.98% 4 place.
Ranking states on this indicator allows you to "indirectly" to find a balance between military export one or another of the country and the funds allocated to development programs from its own armed forces, given that a significant fraction of military spending goes to finance the purchase of weapons for the army.
Since the share expenditure on the development of aircraft in military budgets of different countries varies very much, specifications, as mentioned above, can only be considered as approximate and in the context of the assessment of the balance of military exports and funds allocated for the development of their own armed forces.
Yet, TSAMTO felt it appropriate to hold such an analysis, as it itself for itself already represents enthusiasm.
Certainly, it would be more correct to conduct such analysis in all countries of the world, taking into account only the expenditure side of the military budgets allocated for the development of the Armed Forces, but reliable disk imaging on the expenditure side of military budgets allocated for the development of its own aircraft, in many countries is not available, because the calculation performed the ratio of military exports to total military spending one or another country.
Index of more than 10% have a few more states. This is Israel (13.74%), South Africa (11.39%) and Belarus (10.58%).
In contrast to the Russian Federation, Israel, Sweden and Ukraine naikrupneyshie other world suppliers of arms are much the smallest index the ratio of exports of military to military spending.
In particular, Germany has an index of 7.24%, France — 6.95%, Spain — 6.09%, Italy — 4.30%, ENGLAND — 4.22%, USA — 2.64%.
The smallest percentage of a group of leading global suppliers of weapons is China — 1,81%.
Absolutely material on military spending countries in the world from 2004 to 2011. with a huge amount of statistical data table will be placed in the forthcoming edition of the Yearbook TSAMTO 2012.
