This analysis is based on findings from the DealEdge Data Book: 2021 Private Equity Deal Performance Benchmarks
The median IRR for Industrials deals entered since 2010 is on par with the DealEdge All-Industry Private Equity Deal Benchmark – 20.5% and 21.9% respectively. There is similar parity at the top and bottom quartiles: the boundaries for Industrials deals remain within three percentage points of the All-Industry Benchmark in both instances.
The largest industry groups in the Industrials sector are consistent. Deals in Industrial Goods and Construction have posted median returns of 21.7% and 20.6% respectively, and have similar quartile boundaries. But Transportation deals have historically seen significantly lower median IRRs – just 7.9% for deals entered in 2010-2021. This has in turn had a dampening affect on the sector-level Industrials benchmark.
