Private equity is continuing to attract investor capital in 2017, despite increasingly tough conditions for buyouts. With new fundraising contributing to an already record amount of dry powder, PE firms are facing a competitive dealmaking landscape and rising valuations for targets. Volatility across global markets raises the question of which regions and sectors will see the most PE activity in the year ahead.

To find out what PE trends are likely to play out in the year ahead, Toppan Vintage commissioned Mergermarket to interview senior dealmakers for their insights.

Key findings include:

  • Some 64% of respondents expect private equity activity to increase in the next 12 months – 16% believe significantly so.
  • North America and Asia-Pacific are predicted to be the regions with the most private equity investment over the next year.
  • The majority of respondents (52%) believe that technology, media and telecommunications will be the sector to see the most private equity activity over the coming 12 months.
