A surge in the number of merger and acquisition deals

Although there are still many challenges, economic experts believe that now is the right time for businesses to increase acquisition or cooperation activities, especially enterprises with strong financial potential.

The government has launched many other positive solutions to solve problems of real estate projects, reduce interest rates to support businesses, improve the transparency of the real estate market, and help companies expand markets and cooperation.

According to Ms. Trang Bui, General Director of Cushman & Wakefield Vietnam, there will be a large amount of capital from foreign investors pouring into the Vietnamese real estate market in the 2024-2026 period because many contracts are in the active negotiation process. Seeking clean land funds with high quality, real value, legal ownership, completed compensation, and development potential are investment goals.

Mr. Neil MacGregor, managing director at Savills Vietnam, assessed that a stable economy and large population, infrastructure development, urbanization, and abundant investments from foreign countries and the middle class are potential opportunities. It is predicted that there will be a surge in the number of merger and acquisition (M&A) deals in the Vietnamese real estate market in the next few years. Of these, most investments will come from Asian countries such as Singapore, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, and Japan.

Director of HCMC Branch, DSC Securities Company Bui Van Huy acknowledged that M&A activities in 2024 would be more exciting than the previous years when buyers have gradually stabilized their potential and resources. Therefore, the real estate market will see a rising number of merger and acquisition (M&A) deals in the coming time. Cash flows in the secondary stock market will be less exciting but it creates a foundation for economic recovery and growth of the stock market.

Experts predict that Vietnam’s industrial real estate will strongly develop in the coming time due to the benefits of free trade agreements. Specifically, businesses with foreign direct investment will increase their trade activities in the Vietnamese market to enjoy tariff incentives. During this momentum, many investors will pay attention to the industrial real estate market segment. It allows foreign investors to expand their markets based on using experience and networks provided by the local partners.
