2024 Military Strength Ranking



GFP | ANNUAL RANKING

Ranking the nations of the world based on current available firepower.



The finalized Global Firepower ranking below utilizes over 60 individual factors to determine a given nation's PowerIndex ('PwrIndx') score with categories ranging from quantity of military units and financial standing to logistical capabilities and geography.

Our unique, in-house formula allows for smaller, more technologically-advanced, nations to compete with larger, lesser-developed powers and special modifiers, in the form of bonuses and penalties, are applied to further refine the list which is compiled annually. Color arrows (Green, Gray, and Red) indicate the year-over-year trend comparison (Up, Stable, Down). Trends do not necessarily indicate a declining power as changes to the GFP formula can also account for this.

For the 2024 GFP review, a total of 145 world powers are considered.

Note: A perfect PwrIndx score is 0.0000 which is realistically unattainable in the scope of the current GFP formula; as such, the smaller the PwrIndx value, the more 'powerful' a nation's conventional fighting capability is.
