GLOBAL BUSINESS GROUPS Data
Business Groups have significant economic and social impacts, especially on emerging economies where the biggest groups are worth billions of dollars, consist of thousands of firms operating in many different industries, and employ millions of people. For example, Business Groups contribute to close to 60% of China’s industrial output and employ 30 million people. In Korea, 40% of national total output is produced by the top 30 Business Groups. Clearly, it is important to understand the characteristics of these Business Groups and the roles they play in an economy. Our comprehensive data provides essential information on different aspects of these Business Groups around the world, including ownership structure (relating to group hierarchies and complexity), their size and performance. The data is presented in an interactive manner for easy comparison across countries and time. Our data can be used for business and academic research, investment analysis, economic planning, and other related activities.
