Global: Top 50 Global Retailers 2021

The Top 50 Global Retailers is a fresh look at the 50 most impactful international retailers based on their operations at the start of 2020. The rankings are not based simply on sales; rather, the methodology uses a system in which points are given to retailers based on their international revenues, their participation in franchising and alliances outside of their local region, and their ability to sell via online marketplaces. To qualify for the rankings, retailers need to have a direct investment in at least three countries, at least one of which is not adjacent to their domestic market.
