Does Medtech Have an Appetite for M&A?

2016 has already been a busy year for mergers and acquisitions. Will the robust M&A activity in the medtech industry continue?

M&A in recent years has dramatically transformed the medtech industry, and executives have continued to sign deals, with several transactions worth hundreds of millions and the Abbott-St. Jude Medical megamerger already announced this year.

Will medtech keep up this brisk purchasing pace? Do fewer potential targets mean fewer future deals? With large medical device companies snapping up other companies, will the need for integration and time to digest those acquisitions delay or prevent other transactions?

Read on for more recent commentary from several medtech executives on their M&A outlook.
