Hi Vijay, data suggests that 2019 was not a year of mega-deals. There could be various reasons why this could’ve happened:
This kind of investment sizes are usually limited to late-stage rounds. Since, major players in this segment had already raised huge amounts in recent past, there is a possibility that they will not require more resources of this size at least for a few years.
On the other hand, start-ups that are today in their early/mid stage of funding might require funding of $500 million and more in the coming years.
Hence, you could be right when you predict more rounds in this bracket in coming years. On a personal note, I hope you are. :)
That being said, popular VC’s like SoftBank and SAIF partners have participated in less number of deals in 2019 than in previous years. So the picture is definitely not rosy.
