There were strict criteria – they had to be independent firms headquartered in Singapore with revenue generated of at least $150,000 in 2016 and $1.5 million in 2019. Statista examined the officially stated revenue data of more than 600 public companies in Singapore.

The calculation of growth rates was based on the revenue figures submitted by the companies in the respective national currencies.
