INDIA buyer of weapons and military equipment

India has yet again emerged as the world’s largest buyer of weapons and military equipment, accounting for some 14 per cent of all such international imports, while Russia continues to hold a dominant position, accounting for some 70 per cent of all military equipment supplies to New Delhi.

Saudi Arabia, China, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Australia are the next four biggest global importers.

These trends have emerged from a report released by the Sweden-based think tank Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).
