Drug manufacturing sector delivered 301 cases of M&A in 2016, the biggest in number and contributing 49 percent of the overall M&A cases.

M&A transactions reached a record high in 2015 and the sentiment remained fervent in 2016, according to the release.

It expected healthcare service to receive continuous attention this year, with the aging population and huge demand for healthcare services at all levels.
