Dynamics of the market capitalization in the world over the past fifteen years is reveled. It is established that in 2014-2015 world market capitalization was almost 100 % of global gross domestic product indicating great weight of the stock market in the world economy. Analysis of the major industries that have the highest market capitalization in the world, showed significant dominance of the financial sector of oil and pharmaceutical companies. However, the results of evaluation of ratings of companies in the size of capitalization show leadership of companies of communication and technological sectors. It is determined that in Ukraine, the level of market capitalization of companies is rather low and leaders of capitalization are enterprises of commodity and banking sectors.
