Share of M&A deals in North America 2018, by industry

This statistic illustrates the share of total volume of merger and acquisition deals in North America in 2018 by industry. If we discount other services, which makes up the vast majority of deals in North America the two leading industries by volume include the machinery, equipment, furniture and recycling as well as the metals and metal products sectors, each accounting for over seven percent of the total target of M&A deals.

Despite the two industries accounting for the same share in deal volume they differ largely in overall value of deals with machinery, equipment, furniture and recycling transactions valuing more than 150 billion U.S dollars more than the metals and metal products industry.
