China remains the biggest private equity market of the Asia-Pacific region in 2017 as the deal value has achieved $73 billion after a slide in 2016, as the global management consulting firm Bain & Company reported.

According to the report by Bain & Company, the annual transaction volume has increased by $10 billion from 2016, reaching $73 billion. In the meantime, the average sum of investment has reached $128 million, breaking the historical high.

"The private equity market is becoming more mature and rational," said Lucia Li, a partner of Bain & Company's private equity practice in China. "The report shows that investors are increasingly interested in the Chinese market while the market becomes more competitive."

The report shows that investors' preference for the internet and technology sectors has showed signs of retreat, but the areas still remained most popular for investment.

It also pointed out that due to tightening regulations and control on capital, acquisition and merge activities have shown a dramatic slide comparing to historical figures.

"While the China market had another very successful year, research has given us a clear picture of the major trends and nuances affecting both our clients and the industry as a whole, such as the importance of the digital sector," said Kiki Yang, partner with Bain & Company's private equity practice.

"The country continues to be one of the most attractive markets for investors, but it is clear that firms need to invest and focus on areas such as cost transformation and management going forward as macro conditions become less sanguine."
