Defense Spending by Country (2020)



Total annual defense spending by nation.



Global Firepower tracks the annual defense spending budgets of each participant in the GFP ranking, these being funds officially allotted by respective governments to maintain and strengthen a standing fighting force. Because not all nations hold the luxury of large spending budgets, some are forced to maintain affiliates and alliances with regional or global neighbors for security.

Data presented on this list is through 2020. Values are presented in $USD. Estimates are made when official data is not available.
