Updated June 11, 2014
Three of the five largest retail chains in the world are classified as hypermarkets, supercenters, and superstores. By definition a hypermarket is the combination of a supermarket and a department store which has at least 150,000 square feet of floor space, and at least 35% of that space is used for the sale of nonfood merchandise. Generally the terms "hypermarket," and "superstore" are used interchangeably.

In the U.S., Wal-Mart is the dominant hypermarket chain, and has no major national hypermarket competition. By contrast, eleven European hypermarket/supercenter/superstore chains are among the largest retail chains in the world. Hypermarkets are also popular in Japan, which is where five major hypermarket chains are based, also some of the largest retail chains in the world.

What follows is the complete list of hypermarket retail chains ranked on the 2010 Global Powers of Retailing list. The number in the left column is the global ranking number assigned to the company, based on its revenue figures, compared to other top retail organizations worldwide.
