Top and emerging locations for M&A deals in the fashion & accessories industry

New figures released by GlobalData have shed light on the top locations for mergers and acquisitions (M&A deals) in the fashion and accessories industry.

The data shows that M&A fashion and accessories activity is strongest in the US, which saw a total of three deals announced in the most recent quarter (2021 Q4). That’s the same number as were announced in the previous quarter (2021 Q3).

Australia also performed well over the most recent time period, with two deals.

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.
