5 Sectors to keep an eye on in 2022

The past year saw the stock market ending in the black, which brought immense joy to investors on the last day of 2021. Now, 2022 seems more promising than ever. Several experts are predicting that the Indian stock market will grow and take over the fifth spot globally in market capitalisation.

The financial market is set to boom and is supported by various factors such as government policies, international affairs, market conditions, and so on. This new year has brought forth a fresh list of sectors that looks set to perform well in the months to come. So, here are the best investment options to consider in 2022. 


There had been a remarkable spurt in the fintech segment even before the pandemic hit the country, with its adoption doubling every two years. With the world facing a crisis, fintech became a critical aspect for all organisations to stay afloat during turbulent times. Advanced technology along with the demand for financial market fluidity facilitated the rapid adoption of fintech solutions. While 2020 and 2021 were years of fintech acceptance, 2022 and beyond will be years of innovation and revolution. If you are looking for long term investment stocks, it makes sense to look at fintech.

The Indian automobile sector has entered the new year with a bullish outlook to reclaim the sales volume seen before the pandemic. It is going to prove the most profitable sector in India this year. The sector also has strong backing from the government in the form of favourable policies such as the launch of the production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme, incentives for two-wheelers, incentives for electric vehicles, and the FAME-II scheme. This strong backing will surely help the sector bounce back to where it was during the pre-pandemic era. 

Real estate
