So which are the largest engineering companies in the world? Keep up reading, as we have brought up with Insider Monkey’s latest article. Engineering and construction are regarded to be the heavy industries, where large amount of capital and scale are concentrated.

The engineering industry comprises mechanical engineering, military and civil engineering. It was one of the key industries with which humanity could change from manual to machines, and Industrial Revolution could start. The year of 2020 has been very hard or nearly all the industries, especially for those that operate in construction engineering. As the supply chain also have had to cope with difficulties and lockdown, access of materials have been slow, therefore short-term projects are suspended. It’s exceptionally risky for those companies that have huge debts, as they will probably be in financial crises, unless they are able to stabilize their financial situation. Even the largest players of the market have struggled with the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, although it’ obvious they can cope with the decline easier than smaller companies.
