The SIPRI Top 100 lists the world’s 100 largest arms-producing and military services companies (excluding Chinese companies), ranked by their arms sales in 2010. The list is based on the comprehensive SIPRI Arms Industry Database, which contains financial and employment data on the world’s major arms-producing and military services companies. The SIPRI Top 100 for 2010 is the 23nd edition of the SIPRI Top 100—earlier versions are available here.

Arms sales are defined by SIPRI as sales of military goods and services to military customers, including both sales for domestic procurement and sales for export. Military goods and services are those that are designed specifically for military purposes and the technologies related to such goods and services.
