A total of 2,675 venture capital (VC) funding deals were announced in China during January-October 2023 while the disclosed funding value of these deals was US$34.6bn.

China witnessed considerable decline in terms of both deal volume and value compared to January-October 2022, according to GlobalData, the data and analytics company.

An analysis of GlobalData’s Financial Deals Database reveals deals volume and value declined by 15.7% and 29.1%, respectively, year-on-year (YoY) during January-October 2023, compared to the 3,175 VC deals worth $48.8bn announced during the same period in 2022.

Aurojyoti Bose, lead analyst at GlobalData, said : “The decline in VC funding deals volume and value is now a global phenomenon and China is not an exception to this trend. However, China continued to dominate the APAC VC landscape despite the decline.”

China accounted for 46.6% and 60.5% share of the APAC region’s total VC funding deal volume and value, respectively, during January-October 2023.

Bose added: “China is also a key global market and stood just next to the US in terms of both VC funding deal volume and value.”
