Smart factories are revolutionising the manufacturing industry as players overhaul their production systems. We look into intelligent manufacturing, servitisation and the increasing levels of M&A and investment.
In the last quarter we completed 32 deals with business services, industrials & chemicals and TMT being the busiest sectors. Those deals saw us working with 21 different private equity houses, and raising over €220m of debt for our clients.
The global EMS and ODM market is forecasted to reach a size above €500bn in 2018 with expected growth rates of approx. 6% in the next years mainly driven by increased demand for technology across different sectors including automotive and industrials (IoT and AI).
