Because you're probably using ****ty plugins that are programmed by default to hype the output in order to mask that the sound is actually getting worse (oldest trick in the book) !

A great compressor (chosen for the right task) can make something sound louder/more present whilst the output meter stays exactly the same (or lower) as the input meter. And that is why some of them still cost so much money !!!
