After a slow start, Chinese tech firm sped up its IPO rush in the latter half of 2017, marked by hefty IPOs like the ones from China Literature, ZhongAn, Qudian, and Sogou.

The past year also witnessed strong performances from some of China’s top listed tech giants. Tencent joined the half-a-trillion-dollar club last November, while Alibaba is expected to smash the same milestone in no time.
