SUMMARY

This report classifies the 250 global biggest retailers based on public information for FY2017 and reveals that the main three global retailers kept their positions in the ranking while Amazon went up to the fourth position and achieved the largest revenue growth of 25%.

The document also takes a look at the online retailers' performance and analyses their figures across countries and sectors. The report starts by offering a global economic outlook and concludes with the new entries to the Top 250.

The Top 250 companies studied for this paper achieved very positive results in FY2017. Retail revenue went up around 83% of the world's largest retailers which translates into a growth rate of nearly 6%, much more compared to the previous 4% of the growth of the year before. The study also points out that more than 90% of the firms that unveiled their bottom-line results were profitable. 

According to the report's sector analysis, apparel and accessories retailers are among the most profitable. However, hardlines and leisure goods boosted growth in 2017's results.

The report indicates that 16 retailers joined or re-entered the top 250 list. Metro AG and Ceconomy were the list's highest entries.
