SECTOR M&A OUTLOOK
From a sector perspective, our forecast shows a clear shift from investor apprehension to appetite in the coming years, with several of the industries hit hardest by the M&A slowdown in 2016 primed for recovery. Healthcare, pharmaceuticals, telecom and energy will experience the strongest turnarounds, although we expect the rise in energy M&A to be relatively short-lived.
Sectors like consumer goods, industrials and finance that have experienced more moderate slowdowns in deal activity over the last two years are likely to have slower upturns.
One outlier to this rule is basic materials, which experienced a major slowdown in deal activity during the global financial crisis (deals peaked at US$405 billion in 2007, fell to US$117 billion in 2009, and have fluctuated between US$120-220 billion since). We expect this slowdown to continue, albeit at a slower pace.
Another exception to the rule is technology, where activity has been strong in the past few years, and will likely strengthen further in the years ahead.
