COVID-19 and China
WIM:Next 50 in Global Tech——Real Estate

On December 9-11, 2020, EqualOcean will host this year's World Innovators Meet (WIM). WIM2020 will take on a bolder stance and adopt a more global outlook by taking the form of an online conference that will be streamed simultaneously in all countries and regions that champion the realm of technology and innovation. 

During the World Innovators Meet, the WIM Committee will release the annual blockbuster WIA list, the World Innovation Awards, based on our annual industry and investment research findings, together with a series of research reports.

New technology, new living, a new opportunity

The property industry has shifted from an incremental 'golden age' to the 'silver age' based on stocks, implying a new trend of operational enhance in which technology plays an important role. Proptech, a concept that was produced under the combination of technology and property, is expected to bring a new revolution to the property industry, including property investment, building, operation, sales and so on.

Billions of dollars will flow into this area. Since the property industry has a relatively low digital level, the potential of proptech is large. Take AI as an example, according to PwC, AI will bring CNY 100 trillion increments to global GDP, and Sinovation Ventures predicted half of this increment would belong to traditional industries. Besides, referring to data of Gohigh Capital, the market scale of the smart cities will reach CNY 10 trillion and keep a 33.38% CAGR. There is no doubt that the Chinese market will be a significant power in proptech.

The smart property attracts much investment. Recently, leading technology companies such as Alibaba, Tencent, and Baidu have been exploring and investing in fields connected to smart building and property big data. The value chain of proptech becomes more complete because of the involvement of diverse investors. According to Venture Scanner, the CAGR of investment in proptech from 2013 to 2018 was 16%. JLL predicted that leading into 2020, proptech startups in the Asia-Pacific region would receive USD 4.5 billion investment annually. Many signals indicate that more and more players are flowing into proptech and transform the property industry into the innovative proptech industry.

The list of top 50 global innovative proptech enterprises will take a deep look at the innovative and potential proptech enterprises from the aspects on innovation, business value, development potential and so on to find the best 50. Along with the professional list and a series of reports, EqualOcean aims at establishing a panoramic map of the global proptech industry.

Let technology lead our lifestyles. Higher penetration of proptech is an irreversible trend, with supportive policies like those on smart cities, new infrastructure and so on. When technology develops, the marginal cost of the technological application will decrease correspondingly and the demand for IoT, 5G, AI, big data and other technologies increases as well. Technology will certainly change the lifestyles of human beings – therefore, EqualOcean is establishing the list of top global 50 innovative proptech enterprises to witness the coming miracle.
