A conglomerate is a organisation / company which operates in many sectors, which have no apparent relation or business synergy among them. A good example of a conglomerate would be the Japanese Matsushita Corporation. For a conglomerate to be termed global, a substantial portion of the turnover and the profits o f the conglomerate should be derieved from global markets - i.e., outside the home market.
