The Forbes Global 2000 is an annual ranking of the world’s top 2000 public companies published by Forbes magazine since 2003. The companies are ranked according to four basic metrics: profit, sales, assets and market value.
In total, the world's 2000 biggest public companies account for $162 trillion in assets, $35 trillion in revenues, $2 trillion in profits and $44 trillion in market value, according to the 2016 list.
