Key Thematic Drivers in the Retail Industry M&A Deals

The key themes driving the M&A in the retail industry are premiumization & indulgence and e-commerce.

Premiumization & Indulgence

The luxury market weathered the storm of COVID and the rising cost of living surprisingly well. Fiscal stimulus and a strong stock market and individual household savings meant that spending in the US remained healthy. During COVID-19, those who would have spent money on dining and travel turned to spending on luxury goods. However, the recovery and spending have been uneven, depending on the health of individual markets. In this respect, M&A activity driven by the luxury market will be concentrated in areas such as the US.

Ecommerce

Despite lockdowns easing and more retail and entertainment centers reopening in most areas, many people continue to go online for their shopping needs. According to Forbes, e-commerce sales grew significantly between 2019 and 2022. The convenience of online shopping will continue to be attractive to consumers who are staying at home more often and are time-poor. Companies with strong e-commerce platforms will be attractive prospects for acquisition now and in the coming years.
