India sees increased interest for investment, M&A in healthcare space

Healthcare is fundamental to human capital, and healthcare in India is fairly under penetrated. There is enough unmet demand for preventive, primary and tertiary care and a wide divide exists in terms of accessibility and quality of healthcare services between metro and non-metro geographies.

The demand for medical care was already increasing with a large population base, high disease burden and other demographic factors, which is further accelerated post pandemic with awareness and resultant behavioral changes of patients. In addition to strong growth potential, the healthcare sector has inherently demonstrated resilience to macro-economic headwinds and is credited with a credible track record of successful private equity exits with considerable returns.

With these factors, we are seeing increased interest for investment and M&A in the healthcare space in India across segments – single-specialty, multi-specialty, diagnostics, medical devices as well as new age health care companies, with many investors already operating or launching exclusive healthcare investment funds and dry powder being available. We expect transactions in the healthcare delivery, especially for control stake, to accelerate meaningfully in medium to longer term.

Based on our interactions with various stakeholders, we have summarized key investment trends being noticed in the healthcare delivery segment. We hope you find this read quick and useful.
