In a notable development, the total market capitalization of all companies listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) has once again surpassed Hong Kong, making India’s BSE the fourth largest equity market globally.

Market Cap Comparison

The market cap of BSE-listed companies stands at $5.19 trillion, slightly edging out Hong Kong’s $5.17 trillion. This positions India just behind the United States, China, and Japan in the global rankings.

  • United States: $56.49 trillion
  • China: $8.84 trillion
  • Japan: $6.30 trillion
  • India (BSE): $5.19 trillion
  • Hong Kong: $5.17 trillion

Historical Context

India first surpassed Hong Kong on January 23rd. However, Hong Kong quickly reclaimed its position. Recent market movements have seen BSE regain its advantage.

Hong Kong’s Market Surge

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index has shown significant resilience. Since April, it surged over 12%, marking a nearly 20% rise from its January low. This rally was driven by:

  • A stronger Chinese economy
  • Lower valuations
  • Increased mainland investments

These factors have helped Hong Kong recover from prolonged losses due to China’s economic concerns and geopolitical tensions.

Volatility in Indian Markets

Indian markets have experienced considerable volatility recently, especially around election results. For instance, on June 4th, the market dropped by over 6%, but swiftly rebounded, achieving record highs. The market cap of all BSE-listed companies increased by over Rs 32 lakh crore, reaching Rs 432 lakh crore ($5.19 trillion).
