SOBHA featured as one of the 500 high-growth companies in APAC region

As India and the rest of the world reels under the economic effects of the lockdown, the list of 500 High-Growth Companies Asia-Pacific by the Financial Times comes as the much-needed silver lining for the Asia Pacific region.

According to the report, about 140 Indian companies will assist in the revival of the Indian economy. Topping the charts is the technology sector, with almost a quarter of all the companies listed marks the biggest presence in the ratings, followed by industrial goods and health.

For India, some of the key sectors that will play a critical role in driving growth in 2020 include Construction, Financial Services, Transport, Aerospace & Defence, Industrial Goods, Technology, e-commerce, Pharmaceuticals, Fashion & Beauty, Telecom and Automobiles.

Catering to India’s housing demand, SOBHA is the only Indian real estate company to make it to this prestigious list of growth drivers for the APAC region among other construction companies listed. The evaluation was based on companies having: revenue of at least $100,000 generated in 2015; revenue of at least $1m generated in 2018; being independent; headquartered in one of 11 territories in Asia-Pacific (Japan, South Korea, India, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, New Zealand, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines) and whose revenue growth between 2015 and 2018 was primarily organic.

This list of Financial Times is compiled in association with Statista, a research firm that ranks entrants from across the Asia-Pacific based on Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) in revenue between a three-year period (2015-2018). The ranking was created through a complex procedure. Through deep research in company databases and other public sources, Statista had identified tens of thousands of companies in the Asia-Pacific region as potential entities for the ranking.
