: Could you please tell me the meaning of the phrase "driving momentum" in the context below:

: "The potential for hostile bids is driving momentum for regulatory intervention."

Look at it this way and it may make sense:
"The potential for hostile bids is giving the governnment more reason for regulatory intervention."
