World's Largest Tech Companies (2017)

Business

In this list you will find the ranking of the 150 largest technology companies by market capitalization in the world. With 686.14 billion euros, Apple leads the ranking of the largest technology companies in the world in terms of market capitalization. They are followed by Microsoft and Samsung, with 467.23 and 235.23 billion euros respectively.

This ranking takes on special meaning at the moment of authentic revolution (digital and technological) that we are experiencing. The top companies in this ranking are also the top companies in the global ranking of the world's largest companies (Apple, Alphabet and Microsoft). This revolution consists of the change from economies based on analogue technologies and sectors with traditional production methods towards others in which new information technologies dominate.

The hegemony of the United States in the technology sector does not surprise anyone, and at least in the medium term it does not seem that anyone can face them. However, companies from Asian countries such as Taiwan's TSMC are beginning to get dangerously close due to their growth in their later years. Going from position 10 in 2015 with 97.78 billion euros in market capitalization to position 6 in 2017 with 147.93.

As for Spanish-speaking companies, we must go back to 39th place with the Spanish company Amadeus IT with a market capitalization of 20.52 and 7.77 billion euros in assets.
