Upcoming IPOs in January 2022

The year 2021 was nothing less than a roller-coaster ride for IPOs in India. By large, new companies entering the primary market performed well. However, towards the end, there were a few fiascos like Paytm.

India witnessed a huge number of companies getting listed on the stock market in 2021. This record debut of IPOs can be attributed to a pro-business attitude by the government and RBI that created a stream of foreign money. Apart from this, manufacturing and digitization also boomed. In addition, companies also saw increased participation from investors.

In 2022, this IPO enthusiasm is expected to grow with several big companies debuting in the stock market.
