With increases in productivity and cost decreases, some offshoring is being reversed. Reliability and service are critical in many growth industries including medical and technology. Many projects cannot afford long lead times that are associated with international production.
Several factors are driving the sustained strength of industrial M&A. Firms are looking to expand into new geographic areas, increase their knowledge base through the acquisition of intellectual property, resources and engineering talent, acquire new customers and enter into growth markets quickly. Industrial technology is also driving a lot of M&A activity with evolutionary developments from the Internet of Things, SaaS and automation. Pharmaceutical manufacturing is another hot area with a record amount of deal volume in 2019.
