BMI View: Our view for 2017 becoming a year of increased M&A activity has played out over the first six months of the year and we expect this to continue over the next half, with the potential for megadeals still a distinct possibility. Changing consumer preferences will remain the core reason for these moves, as large, traditional Food & Drink players look to buy up smaller, innovative companies that have tapped into demand for dairy alternatives, enhanced waters and vegetarian trends, among others. The Amazon acquisition of Whole Foods announced in June is a prime example of this playing out, and will transform the global grocery retail industry, having broader impacts on rivals even outside of the US market. Elsewhere, a better performing global economy will see elevated levels of spending in 2017 compared to 2016 as saturation in developed markets leads to strong opportunities for premiumisation and a broad recovery in emerging markets will see these as crucial for revenue growth over the coming years.
