Acquisitive growth, also called inorganic growth, is a growth in the operations of a business that stems from a merger or takeover (acquisition), rather than an increase in the company's own business activity. It is the opposite of organic growth.

Inorganic or acquisitive growth is often seen as a faster way for a company to grow than organic growth.[1]
