Apple has become the first American company to reach a market capitalisation of $3 trillion.

Yesterday, the company crossed the $3 trillion mark when its share price hit $182.88 in midday trading before paring some of its gains.

With this development, the maker of iPhone, Mac computers and Apple wristwatch is now the valuable publicly traded company in the world.

It is worth more than the value of all of the world’s cryptocurrencies.

The combined value of cryptos currently stands at $2.2 trillion, according to data obtained from coinmarketcap.com.

It also implies that Apple’s net worth exceeds the gross domestic product (GDP) of countries including India ($2.9 trillion), France ($2.9 trillion) and Russia ($1.6 trillion).

At a market value of $3 trillion, Apple tripled its valuation in less than four years. It reached $1 trillion in valuation in August 2018 and doubled the figure two years later in August 2020.

While iPhone is still the biggest sales driver, Apple’s services business grew 25.6 percent year-over-year and delivered more than $18 billion in revenue last quarter.

“Hitting $3 trillion is another historical moment for Apple as the company continues to prove the doubters wrong with the renaissance of growth story playing out in Cupertino,” Dan Ives, an analyst at Wedbush Securities said.

“The linchpin to Apple’s valuation re-rating remains its Services business which we believe is worth $1.5 trillion in the eyes of the Street.”
