It also boasts the list's most valuable company - Tencent, now worth $176.5 billion - and its biggest, Lenovo, which generated $46.3 billion in revenue last year.

For the fifth year in a row, India claims the second-highest number of companies, 10 this time. South Korea is next with four. Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore have two each and Taiwan, Japan and Indonesia one each.

Indian companies on the list: Aurobindo Pharma, HCL Technologies, HDFC Bank, Lupin, Motherson Sumi Systems, Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, Tata Consultancy Services, Tata Motors, Tech Mahindra, and Titan.
