The Forbes Global 2000
The Forbes Global 2000 is an annual list of the world’s top 2000 public companies, according to four metrics. It is published by Forbes magazine and has been published since 2003. It ranks companies based on four factors: revenue growth, profit margin, market share, and number of employees. The list is a valuable resource for entrepreneurs, investors, and anyone interested in the fortunes of the world’s largest companies.
The list includes businesses in the United States, Asia, Europe, and Latin America, and is comprised of companies with at least $500 million in annual revenue. According to the list, companies in these countries account for more than $39 trillion in revenue, and all of them are experiencing significant growth. The profits are up by about 28 percent.
The Forbes Global 2000 lists the largest companies in the world. It uses four metrics to calculate the companies’ market value and sales. The list is searchable by country, industry, and U.S. state, so that you can quickly find the best company for your needs.
