Investors must always be aware of the overall market sentiment regarding the sector that they must invest in. This is because if you know that a certain sector is volatile or stagnant, growing or shrinking etc then it helps in taking better investing decisions. Let’s have a look at the top sectors with a high performance to give you a better understanding.

List of top performing sectors:

Electric Vehicles Sector

A large part of the growth in the automobile sector is driven by companies that are investing heavily in EVs or electric vehicles. This is because the Indian government and private industry are looking to expand electric vehicle penetration to up to 30% of private cars, 70% of commercial cars, 40% of buses and 80% of two and three-wheelers by 2030. An early entrant in this market will accumulate greater expertise and hence capture a greater share of the aforementioned market in the next few years. The market is ideal for those looking for a long-term investment.

The top 5 stocks in this sector would be – 

  1. Tata Motors
  2. Mahindra & Mahindra
  3. Ashok Leyland
  4. Exide Industries
  5. Olectra Greentech

Energy Sector

In recent months, the war in Ukraine has caused a sharp rise in energy prices (oil and natural gas). Moreover, the booming Indian economy, rural electrification drives and PLI schemes for the domestic manufacturing sector have ensured that electricity demand is only going to increase rapidly in the coming years. Therefore Indian companies which produce and export such products are also going to see high profits (because of the price-inelastic nature of the demand for energy in the economy). Special emphasis should be there on those companies which are investing heavily in renewable sources of energy.

The top 5 stocks in this sector would be – 

  1. Adani Transmission Ltd
  2. NTPC Ltd
  3. Adani Green Energy Ltd
  4. Tata power Ltd
  5. ONGC Ltd

IT Sector

Industry body NASSCOM said in February that the IT sector is growing in revenue at around 15% per annum – it is expected to reach around $350 billion by the end of the financial year 2026-27. The biggest growth is going to come from AI, cloud computing and analytics as well as the growth of associated sectors such as banking and e-commerce.

The top 5 IT sector stocks are – 

  1. Tata Consultancy Services Ltd
  2. Infosys Ltd
  3. HCL Tech Ltd
  4. Wipro Ltd
