In the rapidly transforming business landscape, C-suite executives are developing agile and adaptable techniques to embrace new disruptive business realities through acquisitions, amalgamations, and fundraising. Such considerations have exponentially spurred merger and acquisition (M&A) deal activity, both in India and worldwide. Consequently, despite economic headwinds, 598 deals valued at US$112.07 billion took place in 2021 in India.
The COVID-19 pandemic also facilitated this growth in deal activity as it gave rise to several multi-sector digital disruptors in finance, retail, technology, logistics, etc. Other enabling factors include the convergence of mobility and digital commerce, the metaverse, and virtual evolution of services, such as for health and wellness. The 2022-23 M&A outlook for India is thus pivoted towards future growth engines like digital, renewables, electric vehicles, Healthtech, FinTech, etc. where alongside large corporations, startup unicorns are also becoming major acquirers.
