Global IPO Market Review 2022

It has been a tough year for the IPO market in 2022. According to EY, the number of IPOs fell by 45% to 1333, while the amount of funds raised fell even faster – by 61% to $179.5 billion.

More companies have shelved their ambitions to go public as bulls give way to bears in 2022 as market conditions become much more challenging due to high inflation, higher interest rates and slower growth. This shook confidence in the markets, dampened appetite for riskier opportunities and tested valuations. Those who took the plunge found it harder to raise funds, resulting in smaller deal sizes.

It is important to note that the drop in IPO activity in 2022 followed a record year in 2021, and activity is still above pre-pandemic levels.

The US-dominated IPO market suffered its worst year since the financial crisis, while Europe suffered an even sharper drop in activity compared to last year as geopolitical unrest escalated.
