8. Summary

Germany, the top market in Europe is also one of the fastest-growing markets over the globe. Top companies in this country are experiencing growth in value and income every year. German companies are also well known in the world, not only because of the advertisements and overall popularity but also for the very good quality of products and great service. Let’s take a look at the top and largest German brands that actually on the market.

1. Introduction

In this article, we decided to show more than just German companies that are biggest in overall, but we divided this ranking into categories such as Revenue, Number of employees, Market Cap and more. All of the tables are sorted from first to last and everyone is shortly described with some useful information. So let’s jump in, and take a look at the largest German companies!

2. Quick summary

There is a huge number of companies in Germany and an even bigger number of data associated with them. Because the numbers are changing dynamically it will be much better to check their actual state at this site , and also to get more information about our databases and our company.

We also have to remember that among the companies there are some stable numbers too. Based on the data about 100 companies with the biggest revenue we can see that they produced a lot of income. For example, a table leader, Shell has a revenue of more than $300B. 

3. Top companies by revenue

In this paragraph, we describe top German companies by revenue. Some of the positions can look strange because they have smaller revenue than the others. It is because what we displaying here is revenue only but the order of this list is determined by revenue, net worth, etc. combined. Let’s take a look at the champions here

Not a big surprise here with the winner of this category. The Volkswagen group is very big and nowadays: a multinational company. And that’s why we can observe the Volkswagen group as the winner of this piece of our ranking with 632312 people employed. Second place belongs to the American giant Amazon with 630600 employed, but we have to remember the age difference between VW and Amazon – 57 years!
