City Momentum Index 2017


The City Momentum Index 2017 is an annual index covering 134 major business hubs across the globe, tracking the speed of change of a city's economy and commercial real estate market, and identifying cities with the most dynamic conditions.

Our research shows that the Asia Pacific region is home to more than half of the world's 30 most dynamic cities and real estate markets, highlighting the rise of cities like Bengaluru and Ho Chi Minh City as major hubs of commerce.

Technology is becoming a major driver of momentum with several cities in Asia providing fertile environments for innovation and are successfully integrating into global networks.

According to the index, the world's most dynamic cities share the ability to embrace technological change, absorb rapid population growth and strengthen global connectivity.

​Asia Pacific highlights:
  • Bangalore tops the CMI 2017 for the first time as one of the world's premier technology hubs supporting robust real estate demand
  • While China no longer dominates the top ranks, it is still well represented in the Top 30
  • Melbourne (12th) and Sydney (16th) represent Australia in the Top 30
  • Manila (19th) appears in the Top 30 for the first time, with a particularly dynamic office market supported by a growing and globally competitive BPO sector
