Apple, Microsoft and Google are the world’s three biggest technology companies, accounting for $118bn in revenue last year and enjoying a market value of $629.9bn between them.

The three tech giants are responsible for almost 97 per cent of the world’s personal computer operating systems; run a large part of the globe’s online searches; and are at the vanguard of entertainment technology from video games to eBooks.

The FT studied the three global groups and the sectors they compete in to compare and contrast how they fare against each other.
