This is a list of Arab League countries by gross domestic product at nominal values. Gross domestic product is the value of all final goods and services produced within a nation in a given year.

The table below shows the nominal GDP and GDP per capita data for the 22 members of the Arab League. Most figures are from the International Monetary Fund based on statistics from 2017, and are shown in current US dollars. Figures from other sources are referenced and noted as such. The GDP figure for Syria is from 2014, and its GDP per capita figure is from 2016. Figures for Palestine and Somalia are from 2016.

Countries (or territories) outside the Arab League with roughly equivalent GDP and GDP per capita figures are shown alongside Arab League figures for comparison.
