The total value of private equity deals in the Asia-Pacific region fell last year to its lowest levels since 2014, as fundraising fell to a 10-year low amid slowing growth, rising interest rates and volatile public markets, according to management consulting firm Bain & Company.

However, Japan was an outlier, with deal values ​​jumping 183% in 2023 from the previous year, making it the largest private equity market in the Asia-Pacific region for the first time, according to Bain's Asia-Pacific Private Equity Report 2024 Monday.
