China 'pulls down Asia-Pacific deal' activity by 4.3% in 2022 Featured

By Gordon Peters

The Asia-Pacific (APAC) region has suffered a 4.3% decline in deal activity during 2022, with the decline primarily driven by a significant 16.5% fall in deal activity in China, which accounts for around one-third of the region’s deals volume, reveals  data and analytics company GlobalData.

An analysis of GlobalData’s Financial Deals Database reveals that a total of 17,009 deals were announced in APAC during 2022, compared to the 17,779 deals announced during the previous year.

Aurojyoti Bose, Lead Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “Over the past couple of years, China’s regulatory crackdown on its tech companies, coupled with stringent zero-COVID policy has affected investor confidence. Subsequently, the country experienced a year-on-year drop in deal volume. Several other key markets of the region also registered a decline during 2022.”

The number of venture financin 3.5%, 19.1% and 3.6%, respectively, in 2022 private equity deals and merger & acquisition deals announcements year-on-year declined by GlobalData.

Bose continues: "Althugh there is a decline in the overall regional deal actiivity, it is still in a relatively better position when compared to the global deal activity which was down by 9.9%.  The positive trend exerienced in some of the markets was able to minimise the impact of decline registered in China and some of the other key markets."

Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and New Zealand witnessed decline in deal volume by 8%, 0.9%, 21.9%, 10.9% and 12.6% in 2022 compared to 2021, respectively. Meanwhile, India, Japan, South Korea and Indonesia experienced increase in year-on-year deal volume by 6.8%, 13.7%, 3.1% and 14.6%, respectively. 

Bose concludes: “Although many key APAC economies have reported a slowdown in deal activity, the positive trend experienced in India, Japan and some other countries could also be seen as a bright spot for deals activity in the region.”

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.
