From Forbes’s “The World’s Largest Technology Companies In 2021: Apple’s Lead Widens” posted Thursday:
After massive pandemic gains and blockbuster public-market debuts, technology firms tightened their grasp on global business and got bigger than ever over the past year, claiming a record 177 spots on this year’s Global 2000, Forbes’ annual ranking of the world’s largest public companies.
Apple heads up the technology ranks for the sixth-straight year, climbing two spots to No. 6 on the overall list, as surging demand in China helped iPhone sales crush expectations and lifted annual profits to a record $63.9 billion—making Apple the most profitable company in the world. The Silicon Valley firm is also worth more than any other company in the world, boasting a market value of nearly $2.3 trillion when the Global 2000 was tallied on April 16.
Cue the world’s 10 largest tech companies by sales:
My take: No. 1 in sales and market cap and growing at double digits. Law of large numbers (LOL) my ass.
