“The US continues to be the powerhouse of the Global Top 100, with the top four giants currently in a league of their own. Longer term, we expect to see a growing contribution from India and other developing markets with Greater China technology companies, in particular, challenging the current position. The prominence of companies from Greater China amongst the leading global unicorns may be a precursor of this.”
