Consumers Sector

Consumer sector has been a growing trend in the world in recent years.

It is predicted that Consumer Goods M&A will peak at US$504 billion in 2018 after a flat next 12 months given an overall global environment of geopolitical uncertainty, with overall M&A activity dropping to US$2.5 trillion in 2017 from US$2.8 trillion in 2016. 2016 Q4 M&A Index highlights that organic, local, additive and cruelty-free are the labels that consumers crave – particularly millennials. And they are willing to pay a premium for them. This move to meet changing consumer demand was a key factor in deal making in the FMCG market in 2016. There were 312 FMCG cross-border deals in 2016, worth a total of US$57.5bn – volume is down on 2014 and 2015, but up on every year between 2009 and 2013.
