Big Tech

Meta (previously called Facebook), Amazon, Apple, Netflix, and Google are known as the Big Tech because they are among the five largest corporations in the information technology (IT) industry in the United States. Microsoft is periodically included in this list as it meets specific criteria such as market capitalization, profitability, revenues, employee count, or attractiveness as an employer.

With market capitalizations ranging from $500 billion to $2 trillion, Big Tech companies have become some of the most profitable publicly traded enterprises in the world. They operate in various industries and have a significant impact on customers across numerous channels. Each big technological company acts as a hub for high-tech internet services and activities.

These major IT firms have a monopoly in their respective sectors.
