Download report

The health care industry across North America and Europe remains driven by several key longstanding trends: shifting demographics; greater demand for quality (particularly as the consumerization of health care continues, enabled by advancing technology); and the sheer costs of delivering goods and services within the industry.

Aggregate transaction value rose across the health care mergers and acquisitions (M&A) landscape quarter over quarter to start 2017, even as the tally of completed deals fell slightly. On a geographic basis, global health care M&A activity in Q1 2017 was down by 40 percent year over year, even as aggregate value was up by over 45 percent.

Private equity (PE) firms with operating partners that can pitch a shared vision are better placed to win deals in the current market.
