The Top 100 Companies in the Arab World for 2017 by Forbes

If there is one word to describe the middle east in terms of economy, it would be "oil". But in reality, the economy of the Middle East is a very diverse one. While the oil industry significantly impacts the entire region, most of the countries here have made efforts to diversify their economies in recent years. In fact, the standard growth in the Middle East is nearly four times faster than the world.  In their annual report, Forbes magazine lists the top 100 companies in the Middle East and North Africa region - also known as the Arab World. For 2017, the list is based on the quarterly reports (as of April 2017), derived from 1,300 companies listed in the Arab stock markets from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Jordan, Egypt, Kuwait, Bahrain, U.A.E. (Abu Dhabi and Dubai), Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia.  Saudi Arabia still dominates the list with 36 companies, followed by Qatar and the U.A.E. with 19 and 17 companies respectively. 49% of the companies are from the banks and financial services sector.  Other large companies like Saudi Aramco are not on the list simply because they are not publicly traded or listed in the stock market.  To rank the top 100 companies in the Arab world, Forbes measured four metrics: market value, sales, net profits and total assets. We highlight the top 10 below: 1. SABIC 2. Qatar National Bank 3. First Abu Dhabi Bank 4. National Commercial Bank 5. Etisalat 6. Al Rajhi Banj 7. Emirates NBD 8. Saudi Electric Company 9. Saudi Telecom Company 10. National Bank of Kuwait

Saudi Arabia still dominates the list with 36 companies, followed by Qatar and the U.A.E. with 19 and 17 companies respectively. 49% of the companies are from the banks and financial services sector.  Other large companies like Saudi Aramco are not on the list simply because they are not publicly traded or listed in the stock market.  To rank the top 100 companies in the Arab world, Forbes measured four metrics: market value, sales, net profits and total assets. We highlight the top 10 below: 1. SABIC 2. Qatar National Bank 3. First Abu Dhabi Bank 4. National Commercial Bank 5. Etisalat 6. Al Rajhi Banj 7. Emirates NBD 8. Saudi Electric Company 9. Saudi Telecom Company 10. National Bank of Kuwait
