The Bremen-based SIKORA AG is again among the 500 secret world market leaders of the German-speaking economic area in 2022. This is the result of the University of St. Gallen in cooperation with the magazine WirtschaftsWoche.
Already in 2016, 2018 and 2020 SIKORA was listed in the ranking of the world market leader champions, which is published annually by the WirtschaftsWoche. For this purpose, around 500 companies are selected as world market leader by the University of St. Gallen according to a strict procedure. The winners are number one or two in at least one relevant market segment and have annual sales of at least 50 million euros, at least 50 percent of which is generated abroad on at least three continents. Only official figures are included in the evaluation, such as published annual financial statements from the Federal Gazette.
