This post provides a list of the billion dollar MLM Companies…
It is a sure thing that every network marketing company has a goal of reaching the billion dollar mark in annual revenues.
We know that there are some companies who have reached that mark and are probably striving to hit higher totals. But wouldn’t it be fun to be working in that MLM office when the first billion dollars was made. I can picture screams, yells, whistles, balloons and bottles of champagne.
While in today’s economy, and the way our government can spend one billion dollars as if it was “chump change,” before I move on I want to give you a good idea as to what $1,000,000,000,000 is.
If you stacked one billion one dollar bills up, they would reach almost 68 miles (67.9 miles).
If you laid out one billion one dollar bills in a square touching each other, they would cover four square miles.
If you laid one billion one dollar bills end to end, they would go around the center of the Earth almost four times (96,900 miles).
If you could spend $100 every second, it would still take you over 300 years to spend one billion dollars.
So you can very well understand that a billion is not a small figure.
I have done some research and I will share the list of billion dollar MLM Companies. And yes, it is from 2015. If you believe there is any kind of discrepancy, you can say so in the comment section. But, please bring proof.
List of the Billion Dollar MLM Companies
Starting from low to high, here are the billion dollar MLM Companies.

Young Living is an essential oils MLM Company whose headquarters are in Lehi, Utah. Founded in 1993 by Gary and Mary Young, Young Living is growing in huge ways.

New Avon – 2015 – $1.01 Billion
Many would claim that Avon made higher figures than that. These are the figures for New Avon. Avon sold all of its North America holdings to Cerberus Capital Management L.P. It is still Avon, but with a different management structure in North America.
Jeunesse – 2015 – $1.09 Billion
In 2009, Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis teamed up to start this highly successful MLM Company. Jeunesse has taken MLM to a whole new level reaching $1 Billion in revenue in just 6-years.
Jeunesse estimated revenue for 2020 is $1,350 million.

Telecom Plus – 2015 – $1.17 Billion
This United Kingdom MLM Company started by just offering telecommunications services. They now offer electric and gas services all through a MLM business format. As you can see, Telecom Plus is growing very strong.
Belcorp – 2015 – $1.20 Billion
This Skin Care MLM Company started in 1968 in Peru. Because of their great products, the company picked up steam all throughout Latin America.
Seeing the beautiful skin of the Latins, many other women around the world grabbed hold of the Belcorp products and have become independent distributors. I predict Belcorp will keep growing strong.
Belcorp is a leading player in the Latin American cosmetics industry.
Melaleuca – 2015 – $1.33 Billion
Started in 1985, Melaleuca is a powerhouse in this great industry. They have over 400 different products to choose from. You can buy everything from vitamins, skin care, cleaning products, laundry detergent, coffee, and weight loss items. They are based out of Idaho and have a strong U.S. presence.
In 2019, the sales of Melaleuca went up $400 Million from $2,100 to $2,500 Million.

Oriflame – 2015 – $1.35 Billion
This Swedish cosmetics MLM Company started in 1967. With extremely top-of-the-line products, it has grown to huge proportions. I look for Oriflame to keep climbing on this list.
Oriflame is present in more than 60 countries.
Ambit Energy – 2015 – $1.40 Billion
Based in Texas, Ambit Energy started in 2006 when energy deregulation was taking steam. This MLM Energy Company has been a great way for everyday people to grow their income. After all, we all need electricity. Considering Ambit does not do business in every state yet, it’s quite impressive that they made the list.
Primerica – 2015 – $1.41 Billion
Primerica is a unique MLM Company. Offering a wide range of financial packages, insurance and more, this MLM has grown steadily since it was founded in 1977. Based in Duluth, Georgia, Primerica does business in the U.S., Canada, and down here in beautiful Puerto Rico.
Premerica’s total reveneu for 2020 is $2,217.5 million.

Tiens – 2015 – $1.55 Billion
This Chinese MLM Company has continued to grow stronger and stronger since they started in 1995. They offer nutritional supplements along with a wide variety of other products. They are making their presence known all throughout Asia and into Europe.
Nu Skin – 2015 – $2.25 Billion
Starting in 1984, Nu Skin which is based in Provo, Utah has continued to climb higher and higher as they move their personal care and supplement products all across the world. I know there are many happy Nu Skin customers and satisfied Nu Skin distributors.
In 2019, China had the most Nu Skin customers, with about 293 thousand people reportedly purchasing Nu Skin products.
Tupperware – 2015 – $2.28 Billion
I know my mom loves Tupperware along with millions of other housewives. They have been going strong since 1946 and will probably never stop.
Tupperware distributes its products to approximately 80 countries.

Natura – 2015 – $2.41 Billion
This Brazil based MLM Company supplies a wide range of products, with a strong show in personal care, has been spreading all over the world. I look for them to start making a strong move into the U.S. market soon.
In 2020, there were 35 thousand people working for the Brazilian cosmetics group Natura.
Perfect – 2015 – $3.58 Billion
Perfect is another China based MLM Company that has been climbing high in the Asian market. They offer a wide range of products including supplements, body care and more.
Mary Kay – 2015 – $3.70 Billion
This is no surprise. The Mary Kay cosmetics company has been in operation since 1963.
We see the pink cars and we know there is a Mary Kay representative driving it. While revenues have been up and down, they are still high on the success ladder.
Mary Kay’s products are sold in more than 40 markets around the world, and its global independent sales force exceeds 3.5 million.
Infinitus – 2015 – $3.88 Billion
This Asian MLM Company is a huge success. They offer healthy alternatives to what we ingest on a daily basis. While we have not seen them grab a huge foothold in the U.S. yet, I look for them to make strides here.
Vorwerk – 2015 – $4 Billion
This German MLM Company has its hands in many businesses. Jafra cosmetics is a subsidiary as well as many others. Their primary business model is direct sales. While you may not call it a MLM per say, I believe they still belong on the list.
Herbalife – 2015 – $4.47 Billion
Started in 1980, Herbalife is not a surprise to be this high on the list. Everywhere I look, I see Herbalife distributors. They have a great product line of supplements and weight loss items.
We have over 9,500 employees worldwide with net sales of approximately $4.9 billion in 2019.

Avon – 2015 – $6.16 Billion
As I mentioned earlier, Avon sold its North American holdings, but worldwide they are still Avon and are bringing in high revenues. But do understand that there is an agreement between the old Avon and the new Avon. The products are not changing.
Amway – 2015 – $9.50 Billion
There is no slowing down Amway. They are the top revenue producing MLM Company and I believe it will take a miracle to knock them out of that spot. You surely know the huge range of products that Amway carries but if you don’t, you can visit their website here.
In 2020, Amway had global sales amounting to approximately eight and a half billion U.S. dollars.
Those are the Billion dollar MLM companies from 2015. We wonder who will make it in 2016 and beyond.
There are several who made a strong running and may jump over the $Billion mark including:

I never realized the MLM Industry was so big. I’ve always thought of it as a little mom and pop type business. It’s neat to see several MLM Companies doing over a billion in sales each year.
Yes, we are a huge industry, bigger than many other industries. We are just misunderstood. If people took the time to really take a look at what the MLM Industry offers, they would get involved.
This list of billion dollar MLM Companies is quite impressive. It seems like these companies all have good management. You also see a lot of health and wellness companies on this list. Interesting trends. Plus, many of these companies are 20+ years old.
Yes, these companies are battle tested. Many have gone through harsh criticism, lawsuits, and legal issues, but they stayed the course. Plus, they are managed very well, by a great executive team. And they normally have great leadership in the field keeping everyone unified, motivated, and trained.
Those are goals, man! Hitting a billion dollars in revenue is huge.
The figures are jaw-dropping and I had no idea about the kind of potential the MLM industry has. Of course, no business is perfect, but if we are determined there is no reason we can’t make it to the top of the ladder.
Yes, these are the big dogs in our industry. Doing one billion or more a year in sales is no laughing matter. Most businesses (in every industry) never hit that mark.
