In this article, we are going to take a look at the 15 largest Mexican companies in 2022. To pass our detailed analysis, you can directly go to the 5 largest Mexican companies in 2022.

Mexico is a developing economy with the potential to be a major economy in the coming decades, but it is plagued by its demons. Mexico has the 15th largest GDP in nominal terms not to mention the 13th largest economy in terms of purchasing power parity. While the country was able to avoid any severe impact from the South American crisis in 2002, it was one of the hardest hit countries in Latin America during the 2008-2009 recession which led to a contraction in its GDP by 6%.

While the Mexican economy has enjoyed a period of high stability that has resulted in incredibly low interest and inflation rates, there is significant wealth inequality within the country, which has continued to increase these recent years, in line with global trends. Despite the aforementioned stability, Mexico has faced major problems, including lack of infrastructure, lack of modernization of tax and labor laws, not to mention of course the drug wars that have decimated much of the country. , which we will discuss later. Although it is a member of the Organization of Economically Developed Countries, it lags far behind most of the other members of the organization.

Some of the progress Mexico has made include increased privatization while improving competition in various major industries such as telecommunications, natural gas, and power generation aimed to improve the quality of the country’s infrastructure. Exports play a major role in the country’s GDP, with its exports to Canada and the United States accounting for more than 90% of its exports and more than half of its imports.

We mentioned earlier that Mexico’s economy and growth are affected by the war on drugs in the country and the activities of several drug lords. According to one study, GDP per capita fell by 0.5% in states where military operations were carried out. The dominance of the cartels in Mexico cannot be underestimated: in some cases, their armament even exceeds that of the army while they are significantly more powerful than the police in most areas, leading to collusion between them .

According to Deloitte, Mexico has yet to recover from the massive losses suffered during the pandemic and just when it looked like the world was about to emerge from the pandemic and begin to rebuild, the Russia-Ukraine war began, plunging the world into further uncertainty. In 2020, the country’s economy contracted by 8.2% due to the pandemic, before growing by 4.8% in 2021. While some industries like agriculture and industrial activities picked up the pace of growth that was continuing before the pandemic, the service industry has yet to fully recover. This is why Mexico is not one of the fastest growing economies in 2022. In 2022, GDP is expected to grow by only 1.8%, but Mexico is likely to return to pre-pandemic levels by 2023. While unemployment levels are well better than it was at the height of the pandemic, the labor market still remains depressed, which, combined with rising inflation, will further increase wealth inequality and affect poverty in the country.
