Sportstechx has recently published a report on the leading Asian countries in terms of SportsTech nation. India has come out on top and China in third.
India might be a cricket-first nation when it comes to sports but it is also clearly Asia’s No. 1 SportsTech nation when it comes to the number of startups, with more than 3x the amount than any other country.
Nearly 40% of India’s startups, however, are focussed on just two sub-sub sectors: Fantasy sports and Booking and Matchmaking so it could just be a case of quantity over quality for now.
India leads the Top 10 countries in Asian SportsTech chart, followed by Israel, China, Japan, Singapore, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
Among the Indian cities, Bangalore, the startup capital of India, emerged as the top SportsTech city for startups but only by a slim margin. India in fact accounts for 4 of the top 10, including 3 of the top 5 indicating that growth within the country is also fairly widespread.
Bangalore leads the Top 10 cities in Asian SportsTech chart, followed by Singapore, Tel-Aviv, Mumbai, New Delhi, Tokyo, Chennai Beijing, Jakarta and Hong-Kong.
