Rising new industries such as food delivery, ride hailing and co-working have given birth to a growing number of new billionaires in China, according to the Hurun Rich List, released on Thursday.

The services sector, including emerging industries and the courier industry, has registered the fastest increase in the past 12 months, the report said. Up to 3.3 percent of the shortlisted billionaires are from the services sector, compared with 2.4 percent a year ago.

The biggest winner in the sector is the courier company SF Express, which made a successful initial public offering in February. As a result, company founder Wang Wei came in at No 6 on the list this year with a net wealth of 155 billion yuan ($23.5 billion).
