Merchant Banking Services in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Merchant Banking Services

The Merchant Banking Services industry has grown moderately over the five years to 2018. While depressed equity and debt markets reduced private capital investment early in the period, higher yields in the latter half of the period contributed to growth in industry revenue. During the outlook period, as an alternative to expensive equity financing and rigid senior loans, flexible, affordable mezzanine financing will continue to grow in popularity. Mezzanine financing also produces higher yields on average than other forms of financing, contributing to robust industry revenue growth. Therefore, over the five years to 2023, increased private capital investment and financial market yields will benefit merchant banks.

This industry primarily makes private equity investments with firm or investor capital into the securities of private or public companies. It also provides a wide range of ancillary bridge, mezzanine, real estate and distressed financing as well as international trade financing and foreign direct investment services in varying degrees. This industry is a segment of the Investment Banking and Securities Dealing industry (IBISWorld report 52311).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
