5 Reasons Why SME IPOs in India will Perform Better in 2023

SME IPOs, Upcoming SME IPO, Upcoming IPO Review,

SME IPOs in India are expected to perform better in 2023. SME IPOs means Small and Medium Enterprises coming up to raise funds from the stock market to expand their operation. This process is known as SME IPOs. SMEs need funds for their growth and the fund can be from venture capitalists, private equity firms, angel investors, etc. Capital can also be raised through an initial public offering and this is the best way to raise funds without selling their stake to venture capital firms.

Startups are the backbone of each country. Startups are generating around 40% of the total employment in India. The government of India launched the “Startup India Initiative” in January 2016. This aims to encourage private investment in the startup ecosystem. The government has been opening up most of the sector for direct Foreign Direct Investment that requires no or minimum government approval. India is expected to be one of the fastest-growing economies in the world for the next 10 years. SMEs in India are in the sweet spot to invest in. Fundraising through IPO is gaining traction among SMEs in India.

Listed SME IPOs in India

Around 108 New SME IPOs listed in 2022 while 31 SMEs were listed in 2020 and 56 SMEs were listed in 2021. Though the process of being listed through IPO is not easy, by raising funds through IPO the SMEs retain the control to make decisions and is not answerable to individual investors or private equity firms. Experts are expecting a strong number of SME upcoming IPO in 2023.

Trend in SME IPOs in India in 2023

  • Favorable Government Policies
    • Market regulator SEBI has relaxed the IPO process for SMEs.
    • With over 40% of India’s exports being led by medium and small enterprises. The government of India’s vision for becoming “atmanirbhar” will encourage SMEs to build capabilities and access domestic markets both for the capital market as well product market.
  • Increasing awareness among SMEs to capture the domestic capital market is also among the major drivers for the year 2023. The government is bolstering SMEs through various schemes. Increasing awareness will help SMEs to come up with IPOs to raise capital from the domestic market.
  • Growth in India’s economy – Indian economy is expected to grow at an average of 6.8% for the next 10 years. Global supply chain disruption due to Covid 19 and subsequent issues in China will drive SMEs in India. India will have a stable environment to expand their businesses.
  • Import Substitution – The government of India’s vision for Atmanirbhar Bharat to reduce import dependencies and increase exports will help SMEs.
  • Potential of listing – there is a huge potential for listing. Looking at the data for the last two years in the New SME IPOs section, each subsequent IPOs are getting more attention from investors and getting oversubscribed. This shapes the trend for the year 2023, and we can expect more than 200 companies to get listed in the year 2023.
  • Market Condition – India as a country will go into an election mood in the year 2023 with many state elections on the calendar. With this, the government is likely to spend more on SMEs to support their growth. Higher government spending will enhance demand from rural India to boost demand for products manufactured by SMEs.
  • Increasing digitization – making a payment in India is as easy as scanning a QR code now. Digital penetration is a key driver for the growth of SMEs in India. Digitization helps SMEs to reach more customers.

Final Words

The year 2022 has been a good year for SME upcoming IPOs in terms of the number of SMEs listed against main board IPOs. The IPO trend has changed towards SMEs and retail investors are taking interest in investing in SME IPOs in India. However, there are many SMEs listed below their subscription price, and while some perform very well. Some SMEs have fallen significantly even after listing gain. Hence, it is important to understand the company insights to invest in SMEs.

Investing in SME IPOs in India is riskier than the main board IPOs as they are small companies at their growth stage. There is every chance that the company may fell to perform in the future. So, before investing in the IPO, understand the business overview of the company to invest in.
