Share this article

It goes without saying, China’s economic rise over the last 10 years has been nothing short of phenomenal. Over the period from 2008 to 2018, the per capita GDP for each China citizen has nearly tripled, rising from $4,600 to $11,200. It has been a good time to be a citizen of China.

As impressive as that is, the growth in investment activity in China life science over the same period was much greater. Between 2008 and 2018, VC/PE fund raising, VC/PE investments, IPOs, M&A, and partnering all increased twenty times or more the GDP growth rate, with VC investment growing to 53 times its 2008 level. Every category set new records in 2018.
