M&A Analysis of Sensors and Automation Industry in North America and Europe

This study provides an overview of the merger and acquisition (M&A) trends in the industrial machinery/automation and sensors industry. Some of the key industry trends that drive M&A activity are identified and substantiated with quantitative analysis. The approach to quantitative analysis of M&A activity is two-fold. Firstly, analysis is carried out for M&A activities by regions in North America and Europe. This is followed by an analysis of M&A activity by industry segments. The focus is primarily from the perspective wherein the industry participants transacted in the role of a seller/target. Insights into the deal volume, deal value, average deal value, and average cost of acquisitions in both approaches are provided.
