Emerging-market deals

Investments in the Asia-Pacific region have been influenced by the trade conflict between the US and China on the one hand, and the rising economic power of the region on the other. While its relative share of investments by the DAX and MDAX companies is still small, the region has become more important again over the last few years, leading to more M&A investments overall. Especially since 2018, volumes and values have been significantly higher and outnumbered other emerging regions, with deal value and volumes having been particularly strong in India, China and South Korea.
