Despite the global economic slowdown and the high interest rates that have put pressure on dealmaking until 2022 Many companies consider M&A as a crucial route to increase their growth. In fact, our latest North American CFO Signals survey revealed that nearly half respondents anticipated that between one% and 10% of their company’s growth this year to result from M&A transactions.

The recent improvement in interest rates and inflation is an indication that the worst is over. This, in conjunction with renewed optimism in the US economy and the easing of fears of a recession should hopefully spur more companies to look at strategic deals this year.

We believe that the coming year will be one of the busiest for M&A across a variety of industries. The industrial sector is predicted to remain a top priority, especially for acquisitions targeting innovative technologies like EVs and cloud-based solutions. In addition, we anticipate the energy change to accelerate and companies in this sector are likely to seek additional assets and capabilities to enable them to succeed.

After a decline in 2022, we expect to see an increase in the tech sector in 2024 as artificial Intelligence and its applications (like the generative AI) capture the attention of businesses, investors, and the general public alike. The healthcare industry is an important area for M&A, since companies and investors compete to bring medical devices that are niche to the market.
