New Delhi: Indian startups are estimated to have raised USD 38.3 billion (Rs 26 lakh crore approx.) in funding in 2018, behind only the US and China, a report by Yostartups said on Thursday.

Flipkart's USD 16 billion deal with American retailer Walmart accounted for the biggest piece of the pie, followed by Swiggy raising about USD 1.3 billion over three deals, and OYO picking up USD 1 billion in 2018, the report said.

Other big funding deals included those by Paytm Mall (USD 895 million), ReNew Power (USD 495 million), Byju's (USD 422 million) and Zomato (USD 410 million).

"There has been a meteoric rise of startup funding for Indian startups. Asia has emerged as a key contender for startups globally, beating the Americas and Europe. In 2018, startups in Asia raised USD 172 billion, compared to USD 162.9 billion in Americas and USD 46.2 billion in Europe," Yostartups CEO Jappreet Sethi said.
