The marker-end attribute defines the arrowhead or polymarker that will be drawn at the final vertex of the given shape.

For all shape elements, except <polyline> and <path>, the last vertex is the same as the first vertex. In this case, if the value of marker-start and marker-end are both not none, then two markers will be rendered on that final vertex. For <path> elements, for each closed subpath, the last vertex is the same as the first vertex. marker-end is only rendered on the final vertex of the path data.

Note: As a presentation attribute, marker-end can be used as a CSS property.

As a presentation attribute, it can be applied to any element but it has effect only on the following seven elements:  <circle>, <ellipse>, <line>, <path>, <polygon>, <polyline>, and <rect>

<svg viewBox="0 0 120 120" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <defs>
    <marker id="triangle" viewBox="0 0 10 10"
          refX="1" refY="5" 
          markerUnits="strokeWidth"
          markerWidth="10" markerHeight="10"
          orient="auto">
      <path d="M 0 0 L 10 5 L 0 10 z" fill="#f00"/>
    </marker>
  </defs>
  <polyline fill="none" stroke="black" 
      points="20,100 40,60 70,80 100,20" marker-end="url(#triangle)"/>
</svg>
