The fundamentals look auspicious for PE in India to continue to grow and evolve in 2011 and beyond. Short-term nervousness in the capital markets in 2011 and highpriced corporate debt are expected to keep valuations down. That is likely to help open up interesting deal-making opportunities for PE investors. Healthy macroeconomic conditions continue to support India’s status as a preferred destination for investors.
India’s fundamentals will continue to attract eager PE investors and bolster the confidence of limited partners. The pace and strength of the industry’s future growth would be accelerated if valuations in India become more attractive and exits continue to build on the momentum established in 2010.
