Are you ready for the IPO boom of 2022?

To say that 2021 was an exemplary year for the primary markets in India would be an understatement. 2021, in fact, was the best IPO (Initial Public Offer) year for India in the past two decades. About 63 IPOs collectively garnered $15.8 billion in the year gone by. This was a surge of 4.5 times over the $3.5 billion collected in 2020.

This euphoria mirrors the record high performance of IPOs across the world and was fueled by factors such as high liquidity in global markets and strong earnings scorecard of India Inc. One important aspect, though, makes this IPO frenzy stand out from the earlier ones – participation of retail investors.

Rising awareness about benefits of investing in equity markets, proactive regulations aimed at protecting interests of retail investors, ease of investing with evolving technological platforms and adoption of customer-centric approach by leading brokerages have cumulatively led to higher participation of retail investors in the Indian market. This trend is visible both in primary as well as secondary markets. 

Factors driving retail participation in equity markets

•    Rising awareness about benefits of investing in equities
•    Proactive regulations to protect interest of retail investors
•    Ease of investing with digital platforms 
•    Customer-centric approach by leading brokerages

In 2021, with a high number of new-age, consumer tech and startup companies (like Zomato, Nykaa, Policybazaar and Star Health) tapping the bourses, retail investors got an opportunity to revel in this growth party. Hitherto, this party was limited to ‘invite only’ participants namely private equity investors and other institutional investors. 

If you think the IPO party has ended, think again. Market watchers and experts believe that this euphoria is likely to continue in 2022 as well. Large ticket such as LIC IPO are likely to boost the total amount raised in the primary market even higher than 2021. Some believe IPOs could garner ~$20 billion in 2022. So far, 70+ companies have filed their IPO prospectus with SEBI. 

So are you ready for this boom?
