Private Equity

Where Private Equity backed healthcare businesses can create value through digital transformation

About this report

With an ageing population, pandemic-weary societies, exponential growth in health & wellbeing spend and an explosion of health data, it’s little wonder that healthcare is a key trend in private equity deal origination. Firms invested over £140 billion across 1,227 healthcare deals in 2019, and the sector now accounts for 14% of deal value. 2020 would likely have seen this speed continue, but COVID-19 impacted deal activity across the board. 


We have created this report in two sections. The first section, “Ten demand drivers in healthcare” looks to bring some order to the insights and trends we see across the wide variety of service providers in the healthcare ecosystem.


The second section reviews twenty healthcare businesses which have seen a PE-backed buyout, or significant growth funding, in the last three years.
