This increase in retail participation and a buoyant capital market had made the decision of many corporates to go public a tad easier. This statement does not seem to be hyperbole when one looks at the fact that in 2021, the Indian capital market ranked seventh in terms of number of IPOs and eight in terms of proceeds raised from IPOs on a global level.
