PE investments to touch $40 bn by 2025: PwC

Over the next 10 years, deals in India, both in size and nature, will increasingly turn closer to those in some developed countries with a potential to reach $40 billion by 2025, according to a PwC report titled ‘PE in India 2025 — A 40 bn USD decade beckons?’ released on Tuesday. 

Private equity (PE) investors are confident of a revival in the investment cycle and expect the PE industry to contribute to the growth of the Indian economy on a larger scale, PwC said, noting that the next investment cycle will represent a more mature phase of investing in the country. 

“The PE industry is also expected to consolidate with perhaps 70-80 significant players. While venture and growth opportunities will continue apace, the industry believes that buyouts will be biggest investment theme over the next decade as India Inc deleverages and exists non core businesses,” the PwC report said.

The report noted that clarity and stability in the fiscal and tax regime are the most critical factors in attracting foreign capital in the country.
