The numbers below is from Apple's last 10-K report (in millions). Sure seems like China is becoming their number one revenue producing company very fast (not that the Americas includes all countries in North, Central, and South America, plus all the Caribbean islands). With all these stores and continued growth, Apple may need to move their headquarters over there soon :eek:


Sales by Operating Segment:
Americas $ 93,864
Europe 50,337
China 58,715
Japan 15,706
Rest of Asia Pacific 15,093
Total net sales $ 233,715

When Tim Cook announced in October 2014 that Apple wanted to expand to 40 stores in China within two years (from 15), I doubted the company would accomplish it. I'll be surprised if it isn't several more above Cook's goal a year from now.
