Lucerne/Emmenbrücke. Every year Christoph Müller, professor of business economics at the University of St. Gallen, ranks the global market leaders. To be considered a world leader, a company must be number one or two in sales in at least one relevant market sector (not in all business segments). At least 50 percent of annual revenue – at least 50 million euros – must be generated abroad and on three continents. The company must have at least part of its registered offices in Germany. This also applies accordingly to Austria and Switzerland.
