While IPOs worth Rs 14,000 crore are already in the final stages of hitting the market, experts say the overall pipeline currently stands at well in excess of Rs 50,000 crore.
Adding to the depth of the IPO market, companies from diverse sectors like renewable energy, QSRs, logistics, pharma, electronics and airlines have made their way into the IPO space this year. The total funds collected by the 21 IPOs in 2015 is the highest since Rs 37,534.65 crore garnered in 2010.
As an icing on the cake, the year has seen as many as 60 percent of the newly-listed stocks trading at a high premium over their issue prices, as against most of the stocks trending below issue price in previous years.
The star performers this year include InterGlobe Aviation which runs the country's largest airline IndiGo (Rs 3,017 crore), Coffee Day Enterprises that owns the largest coffee
chain Cafe Coffee Day (Rs 1,150 crore), Alkem Laboratories (Rs 1,350 crore) and Inox Wind (Rs 1,020 crore).
"While a few companies that launched IPOs this year have not done well, a majority of them have given positive returns," Kotak Securities executive vice-president Trivikram Kamath said.
