11 Biggest French Companies

Since France is world’s sixth and Europe’s third largest economy, we have decided to bring you 11 biggest French companies. This way you will be able to see the greatest contributors to France’s economy.

France is by all means a wealthy country.  In 2010, Credit Suisse’s Global Wealth Report ranked France “the wealthiest European country with 2.6 million dollar-millionaires, and the world’s 4th wealthiest nation in aggregate household wealth”. The key contributing factor to country’s economic growth is considered to be the chemical industry. For example, French company Sanofi is the world’s largest manufacturer of vaccines. This industry contributes to other manufacturing activities as well.

Besides chemical industry, there are few more industries where French companies rank among the largest like insurance and transportation. The fact that there are 3 French companies among 30 biggest European companies by market value proves that.

To determine 11 biggest French companies, we used an annual list made by Forbes.  The list Global 2000 of world’s biggest public companies is based on four criteria: sales, profits, assets and market value. We looked at rankings for the year 2015, and took the 11 highest ranked companies from France, thus compiling our list.
