The total number of Chinese onshore company bond defaults this year just equaled the record set for the whole of 2018.

New defaulted bonds reached 120 this week, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The missed payments totaling 102.9b yuan ($14.6 billion) is approaching last year’s all-time high of 122 billion yuan.

Some 45 companies have defaulted on their debt year-to-date versus 40 in the previous year, Bloomberg data show.

The rise in defaults come in the wake of a slowing domestic economy and policymakers’ growing acceptance that over-leveraged enterprises should be allowed to fail. Industrial Securities Co. sees more more failures in the coming months.

“There will be more defaults in the fourth quarter compared to the previous three quarters,” said Huang Weiping, an analyst at Industrial Securities. “Historically this year will see the greatest number of defaults but any shock will be relatively controlled.”
