We already knew that Amazon were big, but quite how big was probably beyond our comprehension. To simplify things, this handy infographic shows just how many pies Amazon has it’s fingers in, and gives us some impression of how big they truly are.

During the last 15 years, Amazon have been gobbling up companies, right, left and centre, and their extensive portfolio now includes companies like fashion retailer, Zappos.com, which they paid a cool $950m for. Other recognisable brands that actually belong to Amazon include IMDb, Talk Market, Home Grocer, Foodista, Drugstore.com, Fabric.com, Woot! and Audible.com.

With in excess of 40 companies in their portfolio, spanning a wide range of sectors, they certainly appear to have all bases covered. With offerings in electronics, books, baby products, home and garden products, fashion, toys, health and beauty items, and so much more, there seems to be no limit to what they can offer.

Amazon are all set to grow even more, making them truly dominate the online market place.

We would love to hear your views. Do you find Amazon convenient, reliable and vital, or do you find their size frightening and a concern?
