Top Owners Ranking

Bentley Infrastructure 500

The Bentley Infrastructure 500 is a ranking of the top owners of infrastructure around the world from both the public and private sectors that is published annually. The rankings make it possible to readily compare investment levels across types of infrastructure, regions of the world, and public and private organizations.

Bentley Systems has compiled the Bentley Infrastructure 500 to help global constituents appreciate and explore the magnitude of investment in infrastructure and the potential to continually increase the return on that investment. The BI 500 ’s value, at over USD 17.3 trillion, is about equal to the combined 2020 GDPs of China and India. Bentley is committed to increasing infrastructure investment returns through BIM advancements that enhance project delivery and asset performance.

About the Bentley Infrastructure 500

The Bentley Infrastructure 500 ranks owners according to their reported tangible fixed assets (or other comparable noncurrent physical assets such as buildings or fixed structures, land, and machinery). Included in the rankings are public- and private-sector entities with financials reported in the past three years (to allow flexibility in varying reporting schedules). The values presented are assessed net of depreciation and amortization and calculated to exclude, where data is available, assets not representative of infrastructure, such as equipment, furniture, and software. 

Additional footnotes:

  • Data sources for this ranking include financial statements and third-party data providers.
  • All values have been translated into U.S. dollars (millions).
  • Majority-owned subsidiaries with parents already in the rankings have been excluded (unless explicitly reporting separate financials).

The Bentley Infrastructure 500 is updated annually. Please fill out this form if you wish to provide new or updated information about your organization for consideration in the 2021 edition of the Bentley Infrastructure 500
