As financial year 2024 (FY24) draws to a close, the Indian stock market stands on solid ground, with a significant number of stocks achieving their all-time highs. This trend has resulted in handsome rewards for shareholders across the board.

Indian stocks remained hot picks among institutional investors due to the country's macroeconomic stability and earnings momentum.

Notably, mid-small and PSU stocks have emerged as standout performers in FY24, generating wealth for investors by up to five times. Concurrently, the Indian primary market has witnessed a surge in activity as companies seize the bullish market conditions to raise funds.

New milestones

Nifty 50 has notched several record highs this financial year, surpassing 19,000 in June and reaching 20,000 and 21,000 levels in September and December, respectively. Further in January, it touched the 22,000 mark. Recently, on March 07, it recorded a new lifetime high of 22,525 points. 

Remarkably, in December, the market capitalisation of Indian listed companies on the NSE reached a significant milestone, crossing $4 trillion ( 334.72 trillion) for the first time.

This remarkable performance can be attributed to robust retail participation and strong foreign portfolio investor (FPI) inflows, along with buoyant economic growth, healthy corporate earnings, and the anticipation of continued political stability in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

India outlook

International brokerage houses have upheld their optimistic perspective on India, revising their GDP projections upward. Jefferies, for instance, foresees India ascending to become the world's third-largest economy by 2030, outpacing both Japan and Germany. It also projected that the market capitalisation of the Indian equity market would reach $10 trillion by 2030. 

Global rating agency Moody's earlier this month raised India's growth forecast for the 2024 calendar year to 6.8% and said that the country will remain the fastest growing among G20 countries.

Concurrently, multinational corporations are progressively relocating their manufacturing operations to India. With its vast scale and potential, India emerges as a compelling alternative to China for global businesses seeking to expand their manufacturing footprint.

Amid this backdrop, India and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) signed a historic free trade agreement (FTA). Major economies are seeking to diversify their supply chains, reducing reliance on China and looking to India as an alternative.
