Companies in the USA and Europe still lead in the ranking of defense enterprises

23
Companies in North America and Western Europe continue to hold the lead in the ranking of the hundred largest manufacturers of weapons and military services, reports RIA News With reference to the annual top 100 of the largest enterprises of the military-industrial complex, published by the Stockholm World Research Institute (SIPRI) according to 2014 data for




First place again received concern Lockheed Martin (USA). Two subsequent places given to companies Boeing (USA) and BAE Systems (Britain).

News SIPRI called "the growth in the list of the number of Russian companies - from nine in 2013 to eleven in 2014."

Among them, 11-place is assigned to the company "Almaz-Antey" (previously - 12-th place), 14-e - "United Aircraft Corporation" (previously - 15-e place) and 15-e - "United Shipbuilding Corporation" ( previously - 17-e). Russian Helicopters climbed to 23 place (from 26).

“It follows from the SIPRI rating that companies from the United States (seven out of ten) and Western Europe continue to dominate the top ten. But in general, the number of companies from these countries has decreased over the year from 67 to 64, ”the agency writes.

In total, in 2014, the first hundred defense companies sold weapons and services worth $ 401 billion (1,5% less than in 2013 g).

SIPRI experts noted that "the decline in sales has been observed over the past four years, but it is insignificant and is due to a drop in the performance of companies, mainly from the USA and Western Europe." At the same time, “certain sales growth trends are observed in other regions,” for example, in Russia.

“Russian companies are on the wave of an increase in national military spending and exports,” said SIPRI researcher Simon Veseman, noting that “this process is underway in Russia in the face of certain economic difficulties.”

Data on the PRC in statistics was not used "due to the lack of reliable information."

Help Agency: “The military industry database was created at SIPRI in 1989 and contains financial and employment data for global military companies. Under sale weapons Experts are referring to the sale of military goods and services to military customers both in the domestic market and for export. ”

      And who makes the ratings? If there are some rating agencies, then everything is clear with them. For example, such "specialists" in pre-default Ukraine are raising the credit level. Naturally, by order of the state owners.
      That's why Lockheed got first place? For the successful cut of the US defense budget allocated to the F-35?

        Let the cheeks puff out, let them continue to lull themselves and enjoy exclusivity, but we need to calmly continue our work.

          Their sales are growing in dollars, but falling in pieces. And we grow in rubles, and in dollars, and in pieces

          Russian Helicopters climbed to 23rd place (from the 26th). And now, things will go uphill! Serdyukov joined the board of directors of the company!

    “Russian companies are in the wake of increasing national military spending and exports”

    First of all, we should be interested in the success of our companies, the rest is of secondary importance to us, they are just competitors and they must be overtaken in all respects.

    they conduct ratings for themselves, even if they console themselves, the main thing is that we began to revive our defense and technology went to the troops

    If, according to the analysis of the West, our arms companies have moved up several positions, then this speaks volumes. Even with a bias towards Russia, the West recognizes the advancement of our companies in this market - this means success. So keep Russia to evil the enemy!

    These ratings probably indicate that Western companies will have a handicap in the case of a large shecher, and if all countries put the gun on and give priority to the release of weapons, then this handicap will continue. We need to look for new ways to destroy the enemy, so that everyone would have an arms race in this area from scratch.

    There is a struggle for arms sales markets, the United States is trying to promote its weapons, sometimes inferior to other analogues, while using its political and economic influence on NATO countries and other vassal dependent countries

    I do not understand the anger of some commentators. Does anyone really have doubts that Western companies get more sales revenue?
    In fact, officially the United States has long been recognized sales leaders in world markets. The fact that we are second, I hope no one will deny.
    Well, you can compare domestic markets by comparing military budgets, where we are far behind.

    At the same time, “certain trends in sales growth are observed in other regions”, for example, in Russia.

    Our liberal thinkers, entrenched at the helm of the economic management, are all looking for a link, by pulling it you can stretch all industrial production. Here is the Russian defense industry, however much the liberas..alam likes it, there is that link that will ensure the development of our industry and reduce the country's economy’s dependence on very vulnerable commodity exports, dependence on which, in spite of all the liberal efforts and promises, there’s nothing can't get rid!

    The Amerans give the Bedouins (such as Ukrainians) loans so that they can be spent only on the purchase of weapons in the United States. Money for a loan is simply drawn. As a result, the Bedouins buy rusty decommissioned junk. Modern weapons are also sold (but not all), and they are less than the total sales.

    I need a true rating.

    Yes, in principle, no one argues about the leadership of the West in the production of weapons and military services. Our sores would be on their heads, then they would look at the results about. After all, we ruined our defense industry with the help of the United States, perceiving their participation in Russian affairs as a desire to help get rid of now unnecessary weapons, not only operational, but even strategic. Everything was sold out, plundered and voluntarily given away military secrets by our idiots Kozyrev, Bakatin, the Georgian Minister of Foreign Affairs of the USSR. Thanks to the timely arrival of Putin V.V., who saw all the destructiveness of the fall of Russia. And only in 20 years we have again created what the West has been creating for all centuries.

    There is, as always, one factor in evaluating "places" - money! How they got it with their "ratings" It is always not the rating that decides on the battlefield, but the power of Will and Spirit. If you are ten times more rated and get hit in the head, as always. So it was and will be! am

    Hmm ... Estessno. The entire NATO bloc is staffed by 70-80% of US companies in armaments, communications, MTO and ammunition. But if you take into account the weapons that they prefer to fight in real combat conditions, and not "in service", The picture will be completely different. In ALL, without exception, "hot" spots are fighting in the overwhelming majority of weapons of Russian (or post-Soviet) production. It is simpler, more reliable and many times cheaper. Therefore, the conclusion is simple: Some people know how to make weapons. Others are their weapons. ... wink repeat

    See the military budget of the United States and other countries. A country that prints dollars and has a debt of a trillion lives not quite badly. Something in the global economy is not right.

      Look at the US budget and the% of defense spending in it, it will not be so beautiful, in comparison with medicine, the US military is simply rogue.

    As always, let's first agree on the concepts. "Defense enterprises" is a military-industrial complex (MIC). The term MIC was introduced into circulation, it seems, by Eisenhower, who pointed out the danger of this phenomenon for the United States. Now to the point. The military-industrial complex was formed as a tool for the militarization of the US economy. The military-industrial complex is engaged in the creation of advanced technologies at the expense of the US budget, which, after being created and tested in the US armed forces, then by the state (US) through a system of mandatory product requirements, are introduced into the production of consumer products. The military-industrial complex is a state mechanism for ensuring the competitiveness of American (Western) industry products and world hegemony.
    Defense enterprises have existed since the USSR, where the created defense technologies were not available for "civilian" industries.

    The most severe rollbacks and cuts, you wanted to say? In this regard, I fully agree. To the domestic defense industry, before pulling such a mountain of budget dough still grow and grow.
