The cumulative market capitalization of these firms stood at an impressive INR 11,780 crore (approximately USD 1.6 billion) as of 2023, evidencing the tangible wealth created for shareholders. These SMEs have seen an average yearly growth rate of 20% in their market capitalization, reflecting their successful journey on the platform.

One of the highlights of the NSE’s SME platform is its investors’ diverse demographic, including retail, HNI, and institutional, thus attesting to the platform’s appeal to a wide array of investors.

The platform’s success is further validated by the firms’ performance post-listing. Over 20% of SMEs listed on EMERGE have scaled up to NSE’s main board, showcasing the platform’s potential as a stepping-stone to bigger achievements.
