PitchBook: Record Year for PE in '21

According to PitchBook's 2021 Annual PE Breakdown, deal volumes in 2021 smashed the previous record levels in 2019.

PitchBook's 2021 Annual US PE Breakdown was published today. $1.2 trillion in deal value for the year was up 64% from 2019's record year. Deal count of 8,600 grew 50% from 2019. While 2021 may have been an exceptional year given pent-up deals from 2020 due to COVID, it's unlikely there will be a material slowdown in deal activity given the amount of PE dry powder available, the ever-expanding list of industries that PE will invest in, and ongoing demand for exits / liquidity from business owners.

The question we have at RevDeal is: When will the M&A industry start to realize that more technology is needed to process these huge deal volumes, rather than demanding longer and longer hours from M&A professionals?
