Robust M&A activity for chemical industry in 2020
The Deloitte Global Chemical Industry Mergers and Acquisitions Outlook (2020 Outlook) expects robust merger and acquisition (M&A) activity to continue throughout the coming year, despite the trade and geopolitical tensions, and slowing economies that shape today’s global economic uncertainty.
“Over the past few years we watched attentively as the chemical industry maintained healthy M&A activity levels despite the many challenges,” says Bart Cornelissen, Energy & Resources Leader and Managing Partner of Monitor Deloitte in the Middle East.
“The focus has remained on growth and profitability through it all. It seems that the chemical industry has become more comfortable operating in the uncertainty which may now be considered the ‘new normal’. Given the drive by GCC oil and gas companies towards downstream, we expect to see inorganic growth as essential to deliver upon their strategies.”
One trend the 2020 Outlook sees shaping the M&A landscape is the continued integration of traditional oil and gas companies with petrochemical firms, as chemical production is becoming an increasingly important end-use. Another trend is increased sustainability concerns that are changing how chemical companies view their business models, leading to non-traditional alliances, partnerships, and joint ventures.
Private equity has experienced a resurgence since 2018 as an important component of acquisition transactions. Private equity groups are expected to play a renewed critical role in chemicals M&A by providing capital, acquiring assets, and building companies through consolidation.
