World's Top 25 Largest Companies

apple building hq

This list includes the largest companies in the world after consolidated sales as of 2018, according to the Fortune Global 500. American retailer Walmart has been the largest company in the world since 2014.

The list is limited to 50 companies, all of which have annual sales of more than $ 110 billion. 21 companies come from North America, 16 from Asia and 13 from Europe. Among them are only companies that publish financial data and report numbers to a government agency.

Therefore, this list is incomplete because it excludes large companies such as Cargill, Koch Industries, Kuwait Petroleum Corporation and Saudi Aramco, which do not publish financial information.
