The private credit market has risen more than 50% in just three years. A $875 billion market in 2020 is at $1.4 trillion in 2023. The prediction is that this rise will continue and reach $2.3 trillion in 2027.

Mega funds were the major contributors to this boom, but traditional lenders and smaller institutions also contributed to the overall market trends. Lenders have a steady supply of capital, while on the demand side, corporations are in dire need of an influx of fresh funds.
