Analyst Opinion

The Capital Raising market in United States has been experiencing significant development in recent years.

Customer preferences:
In the United States, there is a strong preference among companies to raise capital through various methods such as initial public offerings (IPOs), private placements, and debt offerings. This is driven by the desire to access a larger pool of investors and increase liquidity for existing shareholders. Companies also prefer to tap into the U. S. capital markets due to the well-established regulatory framework and investor protection measures.

Trends in the market:
One notable trend in the U. S. Capital Raising market is the increasing popularity of IPOs. Many companies, especially in the technology sector, have chosen to go public in order to raise significant amounts of capital and gain access to a broader investor base. This trend is fueled by the strong demand from investors for high-growth companies and the potential for significant returns. Another trend in the market is the growing interest in private placements. Companies, particularly startups and small businesses, are increasingly turning to private investors to raise capital. This allows them to avoid the extensive regulatory requirements and public scrutiny associated with IPOs. Private placements also provide companies with more flexibility in terms of pricing and deal structure. Debt offerings have also been a popular choice for capital raising in the United States. With interest rates remaining relatively low, companies have been able to issue debt at attractive rates, allowing them to fund expansion plans or refinance existing debt. Debt offerings provide companies with a more predictable and stable source of capital compared to equity financing.

Local special circumstances:
The United States has a highly developed and liquid capital market, which makes it an attractive destination for companies looking to raise capital. The presence of major stock exchanges such as the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq provides companies with access to a wide range of investors, both domestic and international. This deep pool of capital and investor expertise contributes to the growth of the Capital Raising market in the United States.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The strong performance of the U. S. economy has also played a significant role in the development of the Capital Raising market. A robust economy, characterized by low unemployment, high consumer spending, and strong corporate earnings, creates a favorable environment for companies to raise capital. Investors are more willing to invest in companies that demonstrate strong growth potential and are likely to benefit from a buoyant economy. Furthermore, the Federal Reserve's monetary policy has had an impact on the Capital Raising market. The central bank's decision to keep interest rates low has made borrowing more affordable for companies, encouraging them to raise capital through debt offerings. The Federal Reserve's actions also influence investor sentiment and appetite for risk, which in turn affects the demand for equity offerings. In conclusion, the Capital Raising market in the United States is experiencing significant development due to customer preferences for various capital raising methods, including IPOs, private placements, and debt offerings. The strong performance of the U. S. economy and the presence of a well-developed capital market contribute to this growth.


Data coverage:

Data encompasses B2B and B2C enterprises. Figures are based on the amount of capital raised, the average of deal size and the number of deals.

Modeling approach / Market size:

Market sizes are determined through a combined top-down and bottom-up approach, building on a specific rationale for each market segment. As a basis for evaluating markets, we use data from OECD, annual financial reports of key players, industry reports, third-party reports, publicly available databases, and survey results from primary research (e.g., the Statista Global Consumer Survey). In addition, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific associations, such as GDP, CPI, number of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME), new businesses registered (number) . This data helps us estimate the market size for each country individually.


In our forecasts, we apply diverse forecasting techniques. The selection of forecasting techniques is based on the behavior of the relevant market. For example, the S-curve function and exponential trend smoothing are well suited for forecasting digital products and services due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption.

Additional notes:

The market is updated twice a year in case market dynamics change. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war is considered at a country-specific level.
