There’s a first time for everything, and sometimes that first time marks a big leap.

This year, 21 companies will make their debut on the Fortune Global 500 list—our annual ranking of the world’s biggest companies as measured by revenue. This year, cracking the list meant bringing in at least $29 billion in the fiscal year that ended on or before March 31, 2022. It also means joining a group that includes Walmart, Amazon, and Apple.

The companies that made it onto the list for the first time this year are scattered all over the world, and are involved in sectors ranging from transportation to health care to engineering and construction. Asia dominated the list of first timers, with 12 companies, while Europe had five. The U.S. had only two new additions: used-car seller CarMax, and conglomerate Danaher. Company revenues from the previous year range as high as $172 billion.
