CHICAGO, CLEVELAND and PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Industrials M&A market continues to exhibit strong momentum, with engineered consumables seeing an uptick in deal flow as investor focus turns to custom products and materials targeting specialized markets and applications, according to the Industrials Insider, an industry report released by Brown Gibbons Lang & Company (BGL) www.bglco.com.

The BGL report, now available online HERE, documents positive trends in global manufacturing and end user markets which are driving growth in industrial consumables. The Filtration Systems market is seeing accelerating investment activity as demand for high-performance filtration products grows, driven by more stringent environmental regulations, growing public awareness of indoor air quality, and increasing investments in water, wastewater, and power generation infrastructure worldwide.
