|Category||Revenue in Q4 2020||Revenue in Q3 2021||Revenue in Q4 2021||Revenue Share in Q1 2021|
(All figures in billions, except percentages)
Walmart’s revenue increased by 7.4% year-on-year from $140.61 billion in Q4 2020 to $150.99 billion in Q1 2021. The increment was essentially due to strong positive sales from Walmart U.S. and Sam’s Club segments and positive comparable sales in the majority of the international markets resulting from increased demand stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Walmart’s revenue is further bifurcated according to the following segments
Walmart U.S. comprises of the Company’s merchandise operations in the U.S., as well as online retail stores and omni-channel initiatives. The majority of Walmart’s revenue is generated from the U.S. It amounted to $99.59 billion in Q4 2021, which was a growth of 7.9% from $92.27 billion in Q4 2020 and a growth of 12.7% during Q3 2021 when the revenue was $88.35 billion. The increase in revenue was attributable to growth in average ticketing on account of increased demand during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, this was partially affected by a decline in the number of transactions as customers avoided shopping trips.
Walmart International includes the company’s operations outside the USA, as well as online retail stores and omni-channel activities.
Walmart international accounted for 23% of the company’s total revenue in Q4 2021 amounting to $34.87 billion. It witnessed a growth of 5.5% from $33.05 billion the previous year of the same quarter and a growth of 18% from $29.55 billion from the subsequent quarter. This increase was a result of growing sales which were partly affected by the fluctuations in exchange rates.
Sam’s Club is a chain of membership-only warehouse clubs owned by Walmart. It includes the warehouse membership clubs in the U.S., as well as online store samsclub.com and other omnichannel initiatives. The revenue from Sam’s Club for Q4 2021 stood at $16.53 billion, which was an increase of 8.1% from $15.29 billion generated in Q4 2020 and an increase of 4.3% from the previous quarter. It accounts for 11% of Walmart’s total revenue. The growth was partly affected by lesser fuel sales and their decision to remove tobacco from a few club locations.
