June 2018

In an era of rising PE, investments in technology, specifically software stand out.

Market cap has soared in the software industry – from $1.8 trillion in 2009 to $5.1 trillion in 2016, with a 15.9% CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate).

By 2023, the software industry’s market cap is expected to grow at 14.8% CAGR to $13.5 Trillion.

With developers setting their sights on Machine Learning, and the Internet of Things, global businesses and consumers are becoming increasingly dependent on software.

Software businesses are increasingly preferring private ownership as they seek to partner with sponsors who can take a long-term view.
