As per the International Monetary Fund (IMF), India is the fifth-largest economy globally in nominal Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and is estimated to be USD 4.9 Trillion by 2024. While the country was hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic and an ensuing harsh lockdown, the impact of the pandemic appears to be diminishing, and recent economic signs are reassuring. Growth will be pushed in the coming years by surging consumption, investment, and exports, while structural reforms pose an upside risk.

A business is generally assessed on different parameters such as assets, profits, sales, market value, share price, etc., and is ranked respectively.

However, when we talk about the size of a company, one of the most significant factors to look at is its market capitalization.

This post will discuss the ten biggest public companies in India based on their latest market capitalization.

What Is Market Capitalization?

As per Investopedia, “Market capitalization refers to the total market value of a company’s outstanding shares of stock. Commonly referred to as “market cap,” it is calculated by multiplying the total number of its outstanding shares by the current market price of one share.”

For example, a company with 10 million shares selling for ₹100 would have a market cap of ₹1 billion. The investment community uses this figure to determine a company’s size instead of using sales or total asset figures. The market cap is used to determine whether a takeover candidate represents a good value or not to the acquirer in an acquisition.

Let me give you an example.

The current share price of Maruti Suzuki and MRF is given below. 

From the price point, you may think that MRF is a more prominent company compared to Maruti Suzuki right!!!, Wrong, the share price, when multiplied by the number of shares, gives you the size of the company. Alone the share price can not give you the size of the company.

For example, the MRF has 0.43 crore shares compared to 30.6 crore shares of Maruti Suzuki, which makes Maruti a much larger company compared to MRF.
