Upcoming Deal Trends


Many companies continue to see M&A transactions as an important route to growth, even with the global economic slowdown. The high interest rates will continue to pressure deal-making until 2022. In fact, our most recent North American CFO Signals survey revealed that nearly half respondents believed that between 1 10% and 10 percent of their company’s growth this year to come from M&A transactions.

The recent stability of inflation and rates of interest is a sign that the worst may be over. This, along with rising confidence in the US economic system and the dissipation of fears of a recession, could encourage more companies to consider strategic deals during this year.

As a result, we expect the upcoming year to be one of the most active for M&A in a variety sectors. Industrial companies will remain an important target, especially for acquisitions aimed at innovative technologies such as EVs and cloud solutions. We also anticipate the energy shift to accelerate, and companies in this industry will likely be looking to acquire additional assets and capabilities to enable them to succeed.

After a major downturn for the tech industry in 2022, we anticipate growth in 2024 because artificial intelligence (AI) and its associated applications, such as generative AI, catch the attention of businesses, investors and the general public. Additionally the healthcare sector continues to be a major area of M&A as investors and companies are racing to bring niche medical technology assets to the market.
