Published by Forbes magazine since 2003, the Forbes Global 2000 is an annual ranking of the world’s top 2000 public companies. Forbes ranks the companies according to four basic metrics: profit, sales, assets, and market value.
  • The world's 2000 biggest public companies account for $169 trillion in total assets, $35 trillion in revenues, $2 trillion in profits, and $48 trillion in market value, according to the 2017 list.
  • The world's largest company by market value is still Apple. The technology industry juggernaut based in Cupertino, California, is not the leader by overall score, however, a distinction that goes to the Industrial and Commerical Bank of China (aka ICBC).
  • For the third time, China’s three biggest banks occupied the top three places. ICBC tops the ranking for the fifth consecutive year. The Bank of China moved to 8th place, knocked down by Berkshire Hathaway—a conglomarate owned by Warren Buffet—which moved into 3rd place. Berkshire Hathaway is now one of the largest US public companies, followed by JPMorgan Chase.
