Healthcare, Financial Services, Business & Consumer Services, and Construction sectors have also seen high investment activity by PE/VC firms, recording a deal value of over $70 billion each.   But what can this mean for you?   Understand how the Deals Database on GlobalData Explorer can be leveraged to:

Which countries are emerging as M&A fashion powerhouses?

As well as being the global hotspot for M&A deal making in the fashion & accessories industry, the US has also seen the largest uptick in recent months. The country has seen 29 deals announced over the last two complete quarters, up from an average of just one deal every six months between 2019 and 2021.

That's the largest increase in M&A deal making in the fashion & accessories industry for any country.

That's compared to an average of two deals announced every six months between 2019 and 2021. Though an improvement, it's still the smallest increase in M&A deal making in the fashion & accessories industry experienced by any country in recent months.

Globally, the situation is looking mixed for mergers and acquisitions in the fashion & accessories industry.

A total of nine deals were announced over the last quarter, down from 10 deals in the previous quarter but up from from an average of four deals per quarter over the previous three years.
