Global IPO market in 2018

This is Hong Kong's best year since 2010, as a change in listing rules to allow dual-class share structures and pre-revenue biotech companies to list led to a queue of so-called new economy companies seeking to go public in the city.

Hong Kong hosted three of Asia's top five IPOs - smartphone maker Xiaomi's $5.4 billion float, mobile telecommunications tower operator China Tower's $7.5 billion IPO and online food delivery-to-ticketing services firm Meituan Dianping's $4.9 billion listing.

Hong Kong typically attracted traditional manufacturing firms and financial companies, according to the data, while tech companies preferred New York for both the NYSE and the Nasdaq exchange (NASDAQ: NDAQ). However, China Tower’s $7.5 billion IPO was the largest public offering in Hong Kong this year. 

When it comes to the telecommunications, media and technology sector, Tokyo had the most listings, with Hong Kong coming in second. Overall, IPOs by these companies raised $15.7 billion. That's up more than 600 percent from 2017 while the number of offerings grew 94.4 percent year on year.

Tokyo's rise is largely credited to the $23.3 billion IPO of SoftBank Mobile, the wireless business segment of billionaire Masayoshi Son's SoftBank Group. That was Japan’s largest-ever IPO and the world’s second largest after Alibaba Group Holding’s (NYSE: BABA) $25 billion fundraising in New York in 2014.
