PE investment in healthcare continues its multi-year growth


Private equity investing in the healthcare sector in 2022 can be characterized by the lagging effects from COVID-19 and the current effect of financial markets. 


Market data, powered by Pitchbook, shows a five-year trend of more deals propelled by underlying demographics, regulatory and market drivers. A potential anomaly was the sharp spike in deal volume in 2021, which is partly attributed to the postponement of certain deals from 2020 due to COVID-19 rather than underlying conditions.


Deal activity within the healthcare sector in 2022 has remained strong and it is likely that underlying market conditions will continue to drive growth with a focus on consolidation and build out of platform deals that traded in 2021 and early 2022, despite some developing headwinds.
