Middle East & Turkey Deal Momentum:

M&A trends for 2022

room Live on Deals+
  • The coronavirus pandemic has fuelled the digitalisation trend and technology will continue to seed elevated M&A activity in 2022.

    The governments of Saudi Arabia and the UAE are expected to be the main driver of M&A and IPO activity in the region in 2022, with technology boosting medium-sized dealflow. The total value of MENA activity reached USD 132.8bn in 2021, which has almost doubled compared to 2020 levels of USD 77bn, and it’s only shy of the 2019 record of USD 135bn.

    The Turkish M&A market remained strong in 2021. Despite the challenges of conducting cross-border deals, there has been continued foreign interest in Turkey.
