Twice a year, Meridian Capital publishes its Technology M&A Update, which focuses on key trends in the technology M&A market. The Spring edition focuses on the software-as-a-service sector.
The M&A market for Software-as-a-Service companies remains robust, supported by the high growth profile and positive outlook for the industry as SaaS becomes the standard for software delivery. The industry continues to realize strong demand for SaaS products, with spending forecasted to grow to $16 billion in 2017, up from $8 billion in 2015, and reach an estimated $55 billion by 2026. Further, it is estimated that by 2019, over 20% of every dollar spent on software will be spent on SaaS products.
