TL;DR.
Few analysts say that this year's IPOs have been a mixed bag because they think it has been advantageous for the promoters to raise capital and also favourable for existing investors to withdraw.

So far, calendar year 2022 saw about 141 listing of Initial Public Offerings (IPO), however only a handful of listed companies have managed to trade above 200-600% of their issue prices.

Few analysts say that this year's IPOs have been a mixed bag because they think it has been advantageous for the promoters to raise capital and also favourable for existing investors to withdraw.

According to Mohit Gulati, CIO & Managing Partner of ITI Growth Opportunities Fund, some IPOs in 2022 have been very favourable to the market in terms of returns, but a large majority of them have underperformed because of pricing. Overall, though, it's been a muted year for the IPOs.

The new-age technology companies have not given best performance on IPO but traditional companies that left a little money on the table have performed well. 

Gulati believes that promoters of new ventures might not be overly aggressive with pricing and would also leave money for retail investors. As a result, 2023 may prove to be an interesting year for the IPO market.

As per trendlyne data as on Tuesday, December 27 below is the list of top 10 IPO gainers in 2022.
