[Infographic] The Trillion Dollar Apple

Despite recent stock market setbacks, Apple is still poised to become the world’s first US$1 trillion company. In fact, top economists predict that the technology is likely to exceed that number sometime between August 16, 2013 and April 9, 2015.

But it won’t be easy. Apple’s market cap must increase by some US$400 billion – which took them a four-year period between 2008 and 2012 to achieve – while the value of each Apple share needs to hit $1,072. This means the company needs to grow at least 20-percent year-on-year!

Here’s an infographic that tracks Apple’s rise to power, as well as how the tech company must grow in order to hit that history-making US$1 trillion mark.

Do you think it will happen? Let us know in the comments.
