The World’s Tech Giants, Compared to the Size of Economies – Visual Capitalist

Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and Google have market caps well above $1.5 trillion. If Apple’s market cap was equal to a country’s annual GDP, it might just be in the G7. With its market cap of more than $2.1 trillion, Apple’s value is larger than 96% of country GDPs. Other tech giants that would give countries a run for their money include Saudi Arabia’s state-owned corporation. A company’s market cap is a proxy of its net worth in the eyes of public markets and changes constantly, while GDP measures the economic output of a country in a given year. But companies directly and indirectly affect the economies of countries around the world. With international, wealth accumulation, and impact, it’s important to consider how much wealth and power these companies have.
