PE investors worldwide have hit a bit of a plateau when it comes to dealmaking in California, completing between 310 and 360 transactions each of the past four years, according to the PitchBook Platform. But while there hasn't been much movement in overall activity, sector trends have been interesting to track; for example, B2B's share of deal count has been booming of late, from 29% in 2013 to 35% in 2014 (and 41% in 2015 so far). On the other hand, healthcare has seen its percentage steadily drop, from over 15% in 2012 to under 8% this year.
