List of largest companies by revenue

Walmart has been the world's largest company by revenue since 2014.[1]

This list comprises the world's largest companies by consolidated 2018 revenue, according to the Fortune Global 500 latest tally published on July 22, 2019.[2] American retail corporation Walmart has been the world's largest company by revenue since 2014, with US$514 billion in revenue in 2018.[3] Walmart was also the largest company in the world by revenue from 2002 to 2005, from 2007 to 2008, and from 2010 to 2017.

The list is limited to the top 50 companies, all of which have annual revenues exceeding US$110 billion. 33 out of the 50 companies are either from the United States or from China. Only companies that publish financial data and report figures to a government agency are included. Therefore, this list is incomplete, as it excludes large companies such as Vitol, Cargill, Koch Industries, Schwarz Group and Kuwait Petroleum Corporation because they do not publish financial data.[4]
