Shaping the World - The Top Construction Companies


The list of top construction companies in the world is dominated by companies from Europe and China. No US companies in the top 10.

The list of the world’s top 10 construction companies in the world is dominated by companies from Europe and China, and US companies continue to disappoint as they fail to make it to the top 10 year after year. Almost all of the construction companies that have made it to the top 10 or even the next 20 are the ones that started their operations in the last two decades.

It’s been a massive growth area with new infrastructure projects and real estate developments happening at a rapid pace in all parts of the world. These companies operate at a global level and generate billions in profits. The old and established US construction companies, along with some more from Europe, have lost ground majorly due to the advancement of Chinese companies in Asia and Africa and their scale of operations within China. A lot to catch up on or say a lot to build.
