Today we tell the data story behind how leading global businesses performed in those unprecedented times with the launch of the “The Pandemic Effect on the Fortune Global 500.”
This unique data analytics site builds upon the visual exploration experience we delivered in partnership with Fortune earlier this year, which examined the pandemic’s effect on the Fortune 500. This new site, aligned with the publication of the Fortune Global 500 list, provides visitors a journey through how the recent COVID-19 crisis impacted the revenue and profit performance of the world’s leading companies.
Similar to last year, this site details through visualizations the revenue and performance of the organizations and industry sectors that shape the 2021 Fortune Global 500, while highlighting specifics on how the pandemic affected market performance, including:
- An overview of how COVID-19 impacted overall 2021 revenue and profit performance of the Fortune Global 500 compared to historical performance.
- The profit impact on companies in the United States, China and Japan as compared to companies in EMEA, APAC (excluding China and Japan) and the Americas (excluding the United States), with the ability to explore individual country-level profit performance for the countries in each region.
- A world map that shows the pandemic’s impact on individual country revenues and profit.
- A sector-level analysis that compares the performance changes from 2020 to 2021 in various key areas, such as Healthcare, Energy, Finance, Technology and Motor Vehicles and Parts.
