Download report
To complement PitchBook's 2019 Private Equity Outlook and 2019 Venture Capital Outlook, our emerging technology analysts introduce the first annual Emerging Technology Outlook. The first edition specifically forecasts trends that will shape the mobility and fintech verticals in the coming year.

2019 predictions:

  • We expect a secular shift away from pure-play shared mobility applications toward bundled mobility-as-a-service (MaaS).
  • Autonomous vehicle partnerships and M&A activity will remain elevated.
  • The consumer fintech trend of product unbundling in North America and Europe will change course and move toward bundling to mirror trends seen in Asia.
  • We expect technology conglomerates to make a grand entrance into the financial services sector via introduction of large-scale financial products, major acquisitions or profound partnerships.
