Like the broader PE landscape, the US middle market was well into record territory in 2021. According to PitchBook’s just-released 2021 Annual Middle Market Report, more than 4,000 deals were struck for the first time. It was also the first time deal flow eclipsed 3,000 deals, for that matter. We’re estimating over $600 billion in value when all is said and done, which would account for about 54% of total dollars invested last year. Q4 2021 topped $200 billion for the first time.
