Mergers & Acquisitions in Travel & Tourism: 2019 Thematic Research Report - ResearchAndMarkets.com

October 30, 2019 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 30, 2019--

The “Mergers & Acquisitions in Travel and Tourism - Thematic Research” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report explains how disruptive themes have been driving M&A activity over the last five years. It selects the most notable M&A deals announced in the travel and tourism (T&T) sector over the last five years and identifies the thematic drivers. It also highlights potential acquisition targets, explaining who is likely to acquire them and why.

Key Highlights

In 2018, the total transaction value of M&A deals announced in the global T&T sector reached $68bn, up 84% from 2017, according to the author’s Deals Database.

The main investment themes driving deals include: expansion, market penetration, experience economy, online travel, digital assistants, increase cash flow, strengthen balance sheet, and rescue deals, particularly in the airline industry where many are edging towards failure due to over-capacity, tough competition, higher fuel costs.

Running any business today requires an understanding of all disruptive threats. For example, whatever the industry, technology now makes it easier for players to be disrupted. The companies lining up to disrupt are likely to be smaller and nimbler.
