Fintech emerges as fastest-growing tech sector: Report
Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India LLP (DTTILLP) has announced its list of 50 fastest-growing technology companies in the country, with fintech emerging as the fastest-growing segment.
Conducted by DTTILLP, the programme ranks the fastest-growing technology companies in India based on their percentage revenue growth over the past three financial years.
The aggregate revenue of the top 10 companies has gone up from about Rs 21 crore to just under Rs 400 crore, representing a growth of close to 20x in the 2018 to 2020 period, a Deloitte statement said.
Fintech emerged as a key sector in this year's rankings represented by four of the top six winners, it added.
The companies have grown a staggering 13x to 70x over the last two years, a testament to the growth that the fintech sector has seen in India, the report said.
Apart from the top 10, companies ranked from 11 to 20 also performed extremely well and have grown by approximately four times in terms of their revenue in the past two years, with aggregate revenue of more than Rs 1,500 crore.
The year has also seen a diverse sectoral representation with several companies across data analytics, digital transformation, digital marketing, and other emerging sectors that are likely to see continued growth over the near term.
While Bengaluru - a key hub for the startup ecosystem - continued to be the most-represented city in the top 50 tally (with 18 of the top 50 companies being based there), NCR region was a close second (12 of the top 50).

The new era of technological advances coupled with this year's rankings give us renewed faith that Indian technology companies are making great strides forward, he added.
