According to an analysis by McKinsey Global Institute, as many as 158 global large companies have their headquarters in India with a combined revenue of $898 billion.
The US topped the chart with 2,123 large firms having their headquarters in the country with a combined revenue of $15,221 billion, followed by Japan (1,028 firms, $7,347 billion), China (577, $5,449 billion), Germany (462, $3,788 billion) and United Kingdom (358, $2,818 billion), constituting the top five. The top 10 most favoured destinations for setting up an headquarters of a global MNC include: France which hosts 236 firms’s headoffice, Australia (203), Canada (194), Italy (179) and Russia (165).
India was ranked 11th in the list followed by South Africa, Switzer-land, Taiwan and Brazil. At present, there are some 8,000 distinct large companies worldwide with revenue of $1 billion or more, and three out of four are based in developed regions, Mckinsey said. This situation is likely to undergo a sea-change as by the year 2025, an additional 7,000 companies would grow to this size (revenue of over $1 billion) and seven out of ten of these new ent-rants will be based in emerging regions, the Mckinsey report added.
Currently, the US, Canada, and Western Europe account for 11 per cent of the world's population but are home to over 50 per cent of large company headquarters. In comparison, South Asia is home to 23 per cent of the world’s population but only two per cent of the world’s large companies' headquarters. As per the report, by 2025, half of the Fortune global 500 companies will be based in developing countries inc-luding India.
