India Private Equity Report 2020

Private equity in India had a record year in 2019. Private equity (PE) and venture capital (VC) investments rose to their highest level in the last decade, $45.1 billion, primarily due to the increasing number of large deals greater than $100 million as well as an increase in their average deal size. Record VC investments also contributed to the surge. In absolute terms, banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) and consumer technology continued to be the top two sectors, while investments in real estate and infrastructure, telecom, and IT and ITES also grew. Following the trend from previous years, the total share of buyouts increased, with a rise in growth and late-stage investments.
