Private investment in healthcare has been on an upward trend for many years. From 2010 to 2020, investment grew from an estimated $41.5 billion per year to $119.9 billion per year. With healthcare spending predicted to grow by 5.5 percent annually through 2027, private equity funding will follow suit.
Additionally, the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic repressed investments in healthcare during 2020 and 2021 due to uncertainty and industry turmoil. But as the pandemic pressure eases, there is an anticipated surge in healthcare investment.
