Mergers and acquisitions in the tech market are increasing

Thursday, August 24th, 2017 | Gadgets

In the first half of 2017, the global tech market is experiencing a marked increase in corporate fusions and acquisitions in certain areas. This is apparent from a recent study by the consulting company Hampleton Partners. The mergers and acquisitions have increased, in particular, in the three technology areas of artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) as well as cybersecurity.

          According to the figures of Hampleton Partners, the acquisitions of companies in the field of artificial intelligence increased by 179 percent in the first six months of the year compared to the previous year. Investments in the AR and VR sectors have also risen rapidly in recent years, with most of the activities taking place in the USA. Over the past twelve months, nearly 80 percent of the AR / VR deals have totaled more than $ 620 million in hardware development. In terms of cybersecurity, the increase in takeovers is due to hackneyed data theft as well as data protection violations by state institutions and commercial providers. The transaction volume remains high in the first half of 2017, with 80 acquisitions in the security sector. When it comes to digital marketing, especially in the field of marketing application software, the deals grew by 20 percent. In the first half of 2017, the transaction value in this segment was $ 1.7 billion.
