Chinese developers are facing growing pressure on debt repayment as 958 billion yuan ($141 billion) of onshore and offshore bonds come due by the end of this year, data from a property think tank show.

The figure is 70 billion yuan more than last year, Liu Shui, a senior researcher at the China Index Academy, wrote in a note on Monday. Bonds issued in the onshore market account for nearly two-thirds of the total, the academy said in a separate report on Friday.
