For 2021, Bangladesh is ranked 45 of 138 out of the countries considered for the annual Global Fire Power(GFP) review. The position of Bangladesh is 3rd among the South Asian countries. Indian stands in position 4 and Pakistan in 10. Myanmar’s position is in 38.

Bangladesh holds a ‘PwrIndx’[1] rating of 0.7497[2]. Since 2006 Global Firepower (GFP) has provided a unique analytical display of data concerning 138 modern military powers. The GFP ranking is based on each nation’s potential war-making capability across land, sea, and air fought by conventional means. The results incorporate values related to manpower, equipment, natural resources, finances, and geography represented by 50+ individual factors used in formulating the finalized GFP ranks – which provide an interesting glimpse into an increasingly volatile global landscape where war seems all but an inevitability.

Global powers ranked by potential military strength. The finalized Global Firepower ranking utilizes a unique, in-house formula allows for smaller, more technologically-advanced, nations to compete with larger, lesser-developed ones and special modifiers, in the form of bonuses and penalties, are applied to further refine the annual list.


[1] Each nation is assessed on individual and collective values processed through an in-house formula to generate a ‘PwrIndx’ score.
[2] A perfect PwrIndx score is 0.0000 which is realistically unattainable in the scope of the current GFP formula; the smaller the PwrIndx value, the more powerful a nation’s theoretical fighting capability is (by conventional means as nuclear capability is not taken into account).
