In a remarkable feat, India’s stock market has emerged as a standout performer, witnessing an impressive 25% gain in valuation, surpassing the top 10 global markets. This surge is underpinned by the nation’s resilient economic foundation and significant investments from domestic and foreign institutional players.

Global Market Dynamics:

China’s Downturn: While India thrived, the second-largest global market, China, faced challenges, experiencing an 8.81% fall in 2023. This downturn is attributed to a property crunch and a slow recovery from the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

U.S. Market Resilience: On the other hand, the U.S. market, with a valuation of $50.35 trillion, saw a substantial 22.61% expansion. The fears of Federal Reserve rate hikes diminished, inflation cooled off, and the job market remained robust, contributing to the positive momentum.

Indices Triumph: Key market indices, including Sensex and Nifty, recorded significant gains of 17.3% and 18.5%, respectively. Furthermore, BSE MidCap and SmallCap indices witnessed remarkable surges of 43% and 46%, showcasing a broad-based market growth.

Economic Resilience: GDP Growth and Projections: The first half of FY24 saw a robust GDP growth of 7.7%, driven by stellar performances in manufacturing and investments. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) revised the FY24 GDP forecast to 7%, with a projected 6.5% average growth for FY25.

High-Frequency Data Support: Optimistic GDP projections find support in high-frequency data, including GST collections, auto sales, power demand, and growth rates in manufacturing and services.

Global Contribution: India’s strong market performance elevated its contribution to global market capitalization from 3.4% last year to 3.77% in 2023, further solidifying its position on the global financial stage.

Bottom Line:
