Annually, PropTech Bulgaria issues BULGARIA: PropTech Mapping Report, in order to position in the most precise way the country internationally. We believe that it is absolutely impossible to position a country without proper information and steady research on an annual basis. BULGARIA: PropTech Mapping Reports contain high-end market expertise, contacts with high-potential PropTechs, industry trends analyses, etc.

We are proud that Bulgaria is among the first few countries with such extensive PropTech Mapping Reports. The edition on Bulgaria has been released for 4 consecutive years now. This fact ranks us among the forerunners in the research approach to international PropTech development of countries, and we are glad to be a vital inspiration to many other European countries to issue such reports. See 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 editions below.

PropTech Bulgaria is the one-stop shop for everything that concerns PropTech in Bulgaria.

PropTech Bulgaria exclusively represents Bulgaria in most international PropTech organizations in the world.

 

FURTHERMORE, PROPTECH BULGARIA IS THE DRIVER BEHIND POSITIONING AND UNITING THE CENTRAL & SOUTH-EAST EUROPEAN (CSEE) REGION

We are the organizer of the only international PropTech Conference in the CSEE region which first edition was in 2020. This international forum is not just an event, but the Business Development endeavour meant to scale PropTech companies beyond the national borders in Europe. See more about 2020 & 2021 editions.

FOURTH EDITION OF THE ONLY PROPTECH REPORT ON BULGARIA

 

This is the 4th edition of the annual PropTech mapping report for Bulgaria.

BULGARIA: PropTech Mapping Report 2022 is the only source of information on the Bulgarian PropTech industry available worldwide.

Each year the team of PropTech Bulgaria dissects the industry following the widely recognized approach of categorising PropTech by 5 life-cycle stages. There are other classifications like the one of Unissu. Jll also released their own classification in Aug. 2021. However, we strictly stick to the first classification as the industry recognizes it as a universal language to interpret the specifics (national, regional, international, no matter the level of dissection), and a common ground for interpreting and comparing results.

Moreover, each year we add numerous new data to the initial core set of information. For instance, in the 2021 edition we did a funding analysis for the 1st time. This year we deep-dive into numerous funding perspectives. Additionally, for the 1st time we look at Bulgaria in the context of its neighbouring countries – the CSEE region. Furthermore, we see how Bulgaria stands in the Medium in PropTech countries, as Bulgaria’s performance and achievement are much more similar to the performance of these other 7 European countries.

Explicit and punctual data shapes out the free market niches alongside numerous bespoke advantages of the Bulgarian PropTech industry.

THE TOTAL NUMBER OF PROPTECH COMPANIES IN BULGARIA AS PER 10.01.2022

Bulgaria registers the largest number of newly established PropTechs on a yearly basis in 2020: 26 companies. This number is comparable to the one in 2019 when we have had 25 new PropTechs. The number of new companies registered in 2021 is 16 up to now (15.01.2022). However, this number will be changed in next-year report just as it happens with the 2021 figure.

 

FINTECH

In 2021 Mapping Report we registered 13 newly established in 2020 companies. As it turns out, there number is twice large.

The YoY increase in the number of Bulgarian PropTechs in 2022 vs 2021 report is a direct consequence from the newly identified PropTech companies which have been established in 2016 (133% increase), 2017 (27%), 2018 (25%), 2019 (32%), and 2020 (100%).

Since Bulgaria is far ahead all 10 CSEE countries, it is more logical to review it in the context of Medium in PropTech European countries which are Belgium, Finland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Bulgaria experiences a steady annual increase of PropTech companies in the last 3 years’ time, having a peak in 2020. This proves that the industry in Bulgaria is steadily rising which is not the case with the global industry. The peak of newly-established PropTechs globally was in 2015.
