The financial year 2024 (FY24) was a great year for initial public offerings (IPOs) with 75 issues launched in the year, the highest in 2 years. The strong demand for equities, propelled by the increasing number of domestic investors, laid the foundation for heightened activity in the primary market.

Throughout the year, some of the most anticipated IPOs, such as Tata Technologies, IREDA, JSW Infra, and Cello World, among others, made their debut in the primary markets. Most IPOs this year garnered substantial subscriptions and witnessed positive movements on their listing days.

Outlook

Experts believe that the robust momentum witnessed in the primary market is expected to continue into the next financial year. Even with the elections slated ahead, the strong IPO trend is likely to be maintained.

Trivesh D, COO, Tradejini, noted that the current IPO trend is not indicating a slowdown, with IPOs worth approximately 60,000 crore lined up in 2024. Also, the upcoming elections could potentially boost market sentiment and IPO activity if the outcome is favourable, he added.

"Given the favourable macroeconomic conditions, including the expected GDP growth and India’s manufacturing story, I feel retail investors should not miss out on the opportunity of these IPOs but be selective and cautious in their approach. It is also important to note that IPOs are not the only way to enter the market, and FOMO usually takes the better, of rational investment decision-making and leads to regret later. Retail investors, investing their hard-earned money need to be confident of the Company and its fundamentals which should act as the base of their decision-making and not other factors such as grey market premium and FOMO-driven stocks," the expert advised.

Meanwhile, global brokerage house Jefferies also sees the strong IPO trend continuing. According to Jefferies, the timing seems favorable for global multinational companies to contemplate listing in India. As an example, Hyundai India, which has been established for nearly three decades, recently disclosed its plans for listing in India. This move could potentially set the stage for numerous other multinational companies with significant market shares in India that are yet to be listed in the Indian market.

It further pointed out that over the past decade, India's Internet economy has fostered over 100 unicorns, establishing itself as the world's third-largest unicorn hub, following the US and China. Successful listings of startups such as Zomato, Nykaa, PBFintech, EaseMyTrip, InfoEdge, and Honasa Consumers exemplify this trend. Additionally, Flipkart, Swiggy, Ola Electric, and PhonePe are anticipated to join the list soon. Moreover, the demerger of Reliance Jio and Reliance Retail from Reliance Industries is poised to unlock significant value, offering further investment opportunities.
