Nov 18, 2021 (Baystreet.ca via COMTEX) -- Chinese technology giant Alibaba Group Holding /zigman2/quotes/201948298/composite BABA -1.02% missed market expectations for its quarterly revenue as consumption in the country slowed and its e-commerce business took a hit from supply chain constraints.

China's big tech companies have also been under pressure as the country's regulators clamped down on powerful players from Alibaba to ride-hailing giant Didi Global, citing antimonopoly and security concerns.

Alibaba's revenue rose 29% to 200.69 billion yuan ($31.44 billion U.S.) in the quarter ended September 30. Analysts had expected revenue of 204.93 billion yuan, according to Refinitiv data.

U.S.-listed shares of Alibaba, which have lost 30% so far this year, were down 2.4% in pre-market trading on news of the quarterly results.

Last week, Alibaba recorded its slowest sales growth during its annual Singles' Day shopping event.
