Our report examines transaction trends by our key buyer groups and delves deeper into three specific sub-sectors that saw notable deal trends during the year (social / influencer marketing, AI and gaming).

Looking ahead to 2024, we expect rising consumer confidence to feed through into the media & tech deals market with both the Global Networks and challenger PE-backed marketing groups being particularly active.
