“The positive outlook on revenue growth and profitability is driving confidence in the market growth globally,” said Mike Runia, National Managing Partner, Deloitte Private. “In addition to that, rapid globalization and technology platforms that are available today are enabling businesses to reach consumer bases that were not possible in the past.”

Deloitte found that 68% of the respondents see emerging technology as a positive disruptor, with 56% of firms already using the likes of cloud computing and data analytics to increase the efficiency of their operations.
