The increasingly global environment of the automotive industry drives participants to pursue strategic opportunities far beyond their traditional home markets.
Consolidation, global platforms, the rise of Asian OEMs as global players, and the relentless drive for cost reduction create unique challenges for automotive suppliers, who must find solutions which encompass supply chain and markets across both Asia and the West. Western companies seek to supply Asian OEMs and Asian markets, while Asian suppliers strive to access global markets and technology in order to support their traditional customers and expand internationally.

Healthcare & Life Sciences
Health is a sector shaped both by global trends, technologies and innovation and by local market conditions, demographics and regulations.
Growth in disposable income, rapidly changing and diversely different demographics, geographically and physiologically distinct characteristics, the evolution of government sponsored health systems, and the emergence of true innovators in medical and life science technologies within the region are all drivers of investment and consolidation in Asia.
Access to these growth markets by global participants and the thirst of regional actors for technologies and know-how to induct back into their home markets is giving rise to mergers and acquisitions in both directions between Asia and the West.
