The corporate sectors of the Asia-Pacific region vary in maturity, levels of governance and international profile. But this list of fast-growing companies, compiled with the FT’s research partner Statista, demonstrates that – from ecommerce and financial services to healthcare and beyond – technology businesses are leading the way.
The inaugural FT 1000 High-Growth Companies Asia-Pacific list considered companies based in 11 of the region’s more developed markets: Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan. Those that participated have been ranked according to the percentage growth in their revenues between 2013 and 2016.
Accounting for 134 of the companies that made the list, Tokyo emerges as the top city, followed by Mumbai on 60 and Sydney on 52. Technology was the most represented sector, followed by industrial goods and healthcare.
