Venture Scanner

How is the funding environment shaping up for video technology in 2019? As we pass the mid-year mark, let's see how the year-to-date metrics compare to the historical trends. The graph below shows video technology total funding by year, stacked by quarters.

Video Technology Funding Over Time

As the graphic demonstrates, video technology has amassed $2.5B through Q1 and Q2 of this year. This amount represents 33% of the total funding in 2018, and 46% of the funding through Q2 in 2018. The top three funding events in Q2 2019 include an $876M round into Bilibili, a $327M round into Huya.com, and a $250M round into Vice Media.

A straight-line projection of the completed funding this year would result in $5B, which is 66% of the total 2018 funding. By the same token, a weighted quarterly average projection of 2019 funding would result in $3.4B, which falls short of the total 2018 funding by 54%. Therefore, based on the mid-year data, video technology funding in 2019 is projected to diminish from the funding in 2018.
