MSFT, ORCL, and SAP lead the 10 biggest software companies list

Software is so central to the functioning of our technology that it’s impossible to imagine the modern world without all those lines of code instructing machines (and increasingly humans) what to do, when, and often how to do it.

Because software is computer code, it can be reproduced at negligible marginal cost.1 And software applications are more useful when they’re widely used, making the industry especially prone to large network effects.2

As a result, the largest software suppliers have enviable revenue and profit margins. The industry-wide shift to cloud computing and software-as-a-service subscription models has given many leading software suppliers a large base of recurring revenue.

This list is limited to companies with stocks publicly traded in the U.S. or Canada, either directly or through ADRs. Some companies outside the U.S. report profits semi-annually instead of quarterly, and their 12-month trailing data may be older than that for companies making quarterly reports. Data is courtesy of YCharts.com as of Dec. 22, 2022.
