Moreover, a couple of IPOs are already underway. For example, Nykaa and Fino Payments Bank’s IPO will close in the beginning of November.

Here is a break-up of the IPO sizes.

As many as 41 companies have gone the IPO way since the start of 2021. Cumulatively, they have raised Rs 66,915 crores. Experts feel the total amount raised by the end of the year may touch Rs. 1 lakh crores.

The last time companies raised close to this amount in the IPOs was back in 2017 when 36 firms managed to raise around Rs. 67,147 crores.

Bottom Line

Experts feel that whenever a new route for fund-raising is available, it usually peaks to frenzy levels and then peters out slowly. Experts are also warning to be cautious about the investment in IPOs given that earlier IPOs such as Uber, Lyft did not perform so well.

Moreover, e-commerce, fintech, and technology will be the leaders of the next round of IPOs.
