A Global View of M&A in Consumer Markets: 2010 and beyond 

Despite the slowdown in global economic recovery, companies in the food, drink, consumer goods (FDCG) and retail sectors are still actively seeking mergers and acquisitions (M&A), particularly in the developing economies.


This report is based on interviews with senior KPMG M&A professionals around the world. They were asked to share their outlook for M&A activity in the consumer markets sectors over the next 18 months. Their interviews revealed hat, while economic indicators point to a decline in manufacturing output and weakening share prices, consumer companies in some economies are being targeted both by international buyers looking to enter new markets, as well as by local companies looking to strengthen their presence domestically.


The report also covers some of the key drivers of M&A deals, the role of Private Equity and expected buying trends for 2010 - 11.
