As the Tide Turns, What’s Next? H2 2022 Market Outlook

If 2021 was a high water mark for M&A, then 2022 is seeing the ebbing of the tide. In our latest report in association with PitchBook, Datasite assesses the new outlook for dealmakers.

By any measure, 2021 was a prodigy. PE capital investment exceeded $2 trillion, global deal volume surpassed 17,000, and dealmaking broke the speed record to average just 2.6 months from announcement to completion.

Such figures mean that even in today’s rockier macroeconomic conditions, there’s still plenty of opportunity out there. What’s next for 2022? Find out in our H2 2022 Market Outlook.
