August 22, 2022 ( Newswire) A total of 4,856 deals (comprising of mergers & acquisitions [M&A], private equity, and venture financing deals) were announced globally during July 2022, which is a decline of 16.2% compared to the 5,798 deals announced during the previous month, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

An analysis of GlobalData’s Financial Deals Database revealed that the deal volume during July 2022 was down by 21.9% and 12.3% compared to the monthly average of Q1 and Q2, respectively.

Aurojyoti Bose, Lead Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “This is the lowest deal volume for any month in 2022 so far. Most of the key global markets witnessed a downturn in July 2022. Global inflation and geopolitical tensions seem to be taking a toll on the deals activity. Strategically important global markets such as the US, the UK, China and India have all witnessed a notable downturn in deals activity.”

Though North America accounted for highest share of global deal activity with about 40% share of global deals volume in July, the region witnessed a 17.6% decline in deals volume compared to June 2021. Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa and South & Central America also witnessed a decline in deals activity by 12.9%, 12.4%, 34.6% and 30.6% in July 2022 compared to the previous month, respectively.

Deal activity declined in several key global markets in July 2022 compared to June 2022 such as the US (by 18%), China (7.6%), the UK (17.5%), India (13.7%), Canada (13.5%), Japan (12.4%), Germany (14.1%), South Korea (21.3%), France (28.7%), and Australia (10.5%).

Bose adds: “All the deal types (under coverage) have also witnessed a decline in deal volume in July 2022 compared to the previous month. The number of private equity, venture financing and M&A deals decreased by 22.8%, 20.7% and 11.4%, respectively, in July 2022 compared to June 2022.”
