Asia Pacific's M&A deals to grow 14% in 1H2018

Growth will be driven by the energy, power, industrial and materials sector.

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) deals in Asia Pacific are predicted to increase by 14% YoY during the first half of 2018, financial technology provider Intralinks reported in their latest statistics.

This will be highly driven by growth from the energy and power, and industrials and materials sector in China, Hong Kong, South Korea, India, Australia, and Southeast Asia.

“For most of the APAC region, strengthening global economic demand and supportive fiscal and monetary policy actions are driving vigorous economic growth and increasing dealmaking confidence,” Intralinks said.

Meanwhile, M&A deals globally are forecasted to grow by up to 10% YoY over the next six months, with consumer and retail, industrials and healthcare sectors boosting the growth.
