Aggregate 2016 deal value was US$466.6b, the highest value recorded in the industry, and 2% more than the prior record set in 2015 of US$459.6b.

2016 was a year of record semiconductor consolidation driven by IoT technologies, cross-industry “blur” from non-tech buyers, unprecedented cross-border deal value and record private equity (PE) buying.
