    While M&A could provide synergies, value add and reduce costs for customers, companies could also gain dominance and pricing power in the industry.

    Will M&A benefit consumers in the long run?

    It could benefit consumers if there are cost saving synergies that are passed on, but I doubt that rarely happens. Quality generally doesn’t go up in my experience. Case in point, I used to love Jameson mattresses. They were a family owned company that did very little advertising and instead chose to put their money into the quality of their product. They were bought out and the marketing factor went up exponentially – building on the reputation – but the quality plummeted once the mass manufacturing took over.

    See for consumers benefit can be realized in following cases?

    Are they able to get better products in affordable price?
    Are they able to get better service and parts supply?
    Are they able to get enriched brand perception due to strength of one brand?

    If answer is yes, then its definitely beneficial for the consumer, If answer is no then it’s not beneficial for the customers.
