Hole in stainless steel sink

It is strange that most stainless steel sink manufacturers makes large holes to receive the faucet, which is more than necessary since the fixing part of the faucet is standard in size.

Does anyone know the reason?

There are no universal standard for the fitting, so the manufacturers make the hole to be fit for most faucets.

It seems the sink manufacturers have standardized the size of the holes on the sinks.

You may see the sizes of the holes on various stainless steel sinks are identical.

You see the hole sizes are identical because it is made for the largest size of faucets.

The sizes of the faucets fitting are varied among the manufacturers and models. A larger hole can accept the smaller fitting but vice versa is not.

It implies that there is an agreed or standardized maximum size of faucet, otherwise how do sink manufacturers define "largest size of faucet".

No, the hole sizes are defined by faucet manufacturers on their own, and no body to regulate. Sink manufacturers just search the market for the largest size.

Just find this

it gives us some  ideas about the question.

This is an interesting question, I will continue to look for more information, though not so useful  in my daily life.
