Report: Russia boosts arms sales

39
Total sales of 100, the world's largest arms manufacturers and military services, in general, increased by 2016% in 1,9 compared to 2015, according to a report by the International Institute for Peace Studies (SIPRI).




An increase in arms sales has been recorded in several countries, including the United States and the Russian Federation.

"Sales weapons in the year 2016 rose for the first time after five years of continuous decline in these volumes. American companies included in the "Top 100", increased their share in total arms sales by 4,0%. The total US share in world arms sales is 57,9%. Western European companies increased cumulative sales by 0,2%. The growth in total sales of Russian companies listed as the largest 100 in the world amounted to 2016% in 3,8, ”these reports indicate RIA News.

At the same time, Russia demonstrated a slowdown in sales growth.

The economic difficulties Russia faced in 2016 contributed to a slowdown in the growth of arms sales of Russian companies,
noted SIPRI researcher Simon Wesemann.

The share of the Russian Federation in world sales as a whole was 7,1%.

Researchers singled out this year the companies that they classified as "new manufacturers". They are located in Brazil, India, South Korea and Turkey. At the same time, the South Korean manufacturers headed the list of growing markets, increasing sales by 20,6% last year.

As before, companies from the USA and Western Europe (63 firms from 100) continue to dominate the rankings. The number of Russian companies on the list decreased from 11 in 2015 to 10 in 2016.

The first place in the "Top 100" for several years is the concern Lockheed Martin, the second Boeing. Raytheon closes top three (all US companies). British BAE Systems in fourth place.

Russian UAC took place 13, USC - 19-e, "Almaz-Antey" - 24-e. Russian Helicopters are on the 29 site.

    In general, this is an indicator that ours is better.
    And although I try not to look at the world with pink glasses and about events in the Russian Federation, I cannot but note the fact that the Russian position on the arms market is being strengthened.
    We would not only sell tables, but also high-tech industrial products - in general, beauty would be.

          Russia has shown a decrease in sales growth.

          The share of the Russian Federation in world sales as a whole was 7,1%.

          US share in world arms sales is 57,9%

          Have you read the article or are the glasses interfering?

            The Russian UAC took 13th place, USC - 19th, Almaz-Antey - 24th. "Russian Helicopters" were in 29th place

            For reference. Marketing in the Russian Federation is difficult to take root. Therefore, the issue with the "promotion" of companies in the world market comes with such ... "straining" ...
            As for, say, the United States, so understand that they simply “oblige” to buy them ... Well, or, like the country of 404, they don’t care what, if only from the USA ...

            So I do not understand. Maybe I'm sad about the mathematical mindset? "Increased" to 7,1%. And the USA "losing the world market" is 57,9%. Will we catch up in 500+ years? Do gifts to friends (Serbs, Filipinos and others) come in here? But these figures also include deliveries to own aircraft, i.e. "record" upgrade to "70%" - "smeared snot on a plate with a world pie" for military products. Where to scream?

      It is interesting to know the geography of arms supplies.
      Most likely these are “banana countries” and some poor countries in Asia?

      Hmmm ... Comrades, can we calm down? it’s not “Gaster” who’s working in the defense, but our fellow citizens, our people, the Defense Industry is the most high-tech trump card that we have, we need to develop, and therefore earn. It’s difficult, of course, theft infuriates, it’s already enough, BUT, without the Defense disappear. without options. as my favorite city almost disappeared, with the closure of 2 factories per 30 thousand people. the dynasties were interrupted, the specialists died, the children scattered. the city-sleeping district of Sverdlovsk ...

          Hi Victor, Maxim.
          Although I’m a military man, in spirit, I still don’t make me happy.
          This is because the trade in "death" and all sorts of assurances that the gun is not guilty, but the one who pulled the trigger .... is unconvincing.
          It would be better if proud of bread and other peaceful goods.
          But that’s what it’s and the sales indicator says, among other things, that our weapons are worthy, effective and, if anything, we have something to answer to anyone!

            Hi victor hi You reason rightly. The arms trade remains a significant budget replenishment item, and the United States would gladly displace not only Russia, but all competitors from the global arms market. The United States does not want peace, so we have to adapt to the realities.

            I completely agree. And the fact that even NATO is ready to buy Russian weapons speaks of this.

    Well, I don’t understand why arm anyone with any weapon? Today they are interested buyers, tomorrow they are enemies. Along the perimeter of our borders, everyone is armed with us. An interesting situation looms! The United States issues greenbacks of paper and lends them to everyone without hitting. Russia is releasing weapons from its mountains of minerals and arming its future enemies for greenbacks of paper! I won’t even give facts, so everything is clear.

    On the one hand, you are right, I completely agree with you, but the states still earn dollars by selling their weapons, and at the moment we have nothing to trade with, as soon as raw materials. So far, few products are produced - the consequences of the 90s, but the armament is in demand, but we keep the best, modernized and secret, for ourselves. In addition, there is a payment for the maintenance of our weapons by our specialists. And this is all money. wink

      Well, you said it! This Russia has nothing to trade? I remember how much organic and massive products cost in Germany! The difference in cost is 5 times! We have the cleanest water on the planet and enough land to produce the best quality food. Now about the raw materials .... How much does wood cost in Germany itself and how much do we have? After all, nothing has changed since the 60s of the last century, when the Karelian birch was “driven” for export, and then Finnish furniture sets were bought for crazy money. What and who prevents our government from building factories for production? Now about weapons ... with a small amount of the most secret weapons, it is impossible to protect such a huge country.
