Top Bicycle Manufacturers In World

Hi everyone. I was hoping to get some help with a little research on bicycle manufacturers. Can anyone tell me the top 10 manufacturers of bikes around the world , also the location of their Head Offices?. I believe most cycles are made in either Tawain or China? Any other useful information pertaining to the above

Much Appreciated

Here's a list of nearly all bike brands and who makes them. When you find one manufacturer like Doral Industries which owns Pacific Cycles and it has a lot of brand names following it, you are on the right track.

What's the criteria; volume, number of brands, consumer ratings, reputation, etc. ?

You have to distinguish between a bike brand and a bike manufacturer. The number of well known bike brands that actually do their own manufacturing is very small. Even then, most of the components on these bikes will come from some other manufacturer. Many of the biggest bike manufacturers will be manufacturing brand name bikes for other companies
