By End-user, the Privately held companies segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

In the current market landscape, private equity firms are increasingly turning to special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) as an alternative to initial public offerings (IPOs) due to heightened volatility and uncertainty in the IPO market. Leveraged buyouts (LBOs), which involve acquiring a company by borrowing a substantial amount of money secured against the combined assets of the two entities, remain a popular strategy. However, the rise of SPACs has led to an uptick in private equity involvement in this sector. Private equity firms are forming their own SPACs and utilizing them as exit routes for their portfolio companies, capitalizing on the surge in blank-check companies. This trend underscores the adaptability and innovation of private equity firms in navigating market conditions and maximizing value for their investors.

By Application, Leveraged buyouts  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

In the private equity market, privately held companies represent a significant portion of the investment landscape. Among various investment vehicles, fixed-income private equity stands out as an intriguing option for investors. This type of private equity functions as a bond fund, investing in a diverse range of fixed-income securities, including corporate, municipal, and treasury bonds, on the stock exchange. Unlike traditional corporate bonds, which are typically sold through bond brokers, fixed-income private equity operates on a centralized exchange. This setup grants bond buyers increased exposure to the stock exchange, offering a more comprehensive investment experience. Additionally, fixed-income private equity provides a predictable, consistent return over a fixed time frame, akin to traditional fixed deposits in banks.

North America is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024

The private equity market in North America has experienced significant growth in 2022, accounting for a substantial market share. This expansion can be attributed to the region's continuous trading activities and the US's large presence in the global equity market, which held over 40% share as of August 2021. The launch of the S&P 500 Trust Private Equity in 1993 has further boosted the prominence of private equity stock exchange trading. Tax efficiency, transparency, and centralized access to stock exchange platforms make private equity an attractive investment option for cost-conscious investors on the exchange.
