The Global Technology Market Review – 2020

Julie Langley, Chris Lewis, Mark Williams

Deal activity and valuations in the technology sector were robust in Q4, counteracting the short, sharp decline in the first six months of the year and making 2020 a stronger year than expected across all the tech sectors we track. Deal activity has been driven by publicly listed strategic buyers, who continue to look to M&A to drive growth, and by continued strong levels of investment by private equity (directly and through portfolio companies). We expect this impressive level of deal activity to continue into 2021 increasing competition for high-value businesses.
