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 revenue as of 2019, 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 $514 billion in revenue in 2019.[3]

The list is limited to the top 50 companies, all of which have annual revenues exceeding $110 billion US dollars. 32 out of the 50 companies are either from the United States or 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 Cargill, Koch Industries and Kuwait Petroleum Corporation that don't publish financial data.[4]
