2015 Tech M&A and IPO Analysis Report

2015 Tech M&A and IPO Analysis Report

This IDC study provides an overview and analysis of M&A deals in 2015 across all major sectors of the information and communication technology (ICT) industry, including enterprise applications, enterprise IT infrastructure, digital media, telecommunications, IT services, and semiconductors and components."Boosted by some of the largest tech deals in history and specifically in the IT infrastructure, telecom, and semiconductors sectors, ICT M&A spending reached a record level of more than $700.0 billion in 2015. Looking ahead, there are plenty of reasons to believe that the M&A market will remain relatively healthy in 2016 as the move to the 3rd Platform will continue to drive intense M&A activity. However, the current wave of consolidation may have seen its peak. In 2016, many of the companies that executed big-ticket strategic acquisitions over the past few years will likely shift their focus toward integrating these assets rather than executing additional deals along these lines." — Dan Yachin, research director, IDC EMEA Emerging Technologies
