Tech, Media, and Telecom IPO Themes 2018 to 2021 - Thematic Research

2021 was the strongest year for tech, media, and telecom (TMT) IPOs since 2018 with $237 billion of IPO proceeds raised. This report analyzes IPO activity between 2018 and 2021, identifying the themes that have generated the highest investor returns.

Key Highlights
- Established themes have seen the most successful IPOs between 2018 and 2021. Ecommerce has been the strongest theme driving TMT IPOs since 2018. It is followed by mobile, fintech, and cloud. Cutting-edge technologies like electric vehicles, digital media, healthtech, Internet of Things (IoT), gaming, artificial intelligence (AI), and cybersecurity have been moderately successful in raising capital. By contrast, we have only just started seeing listings of early-stage technologies like blockchain, quantum computing, metaverse, and space economy.
- Our research identified the themes that generated the highest investor returns in the TMT IPO market between January 1, 2018, and January 10, 2022. To do this, we calculated the capital gain an IPO investor would have made by holding the shares from the IPO date until January 10, 2022. The most lucrative themes for investors in TMT IPOs over the last four years were cloud, fintech, cybersecurity, mobile, and gaming.

- In preparing this report, we looked at 1,335 global TMT companies that made an initial public offering of their shares from January 1, 2018, to December 31, 2021.
- The combined IPO proceeds of these deals stood at $469.6 billion.
- Of these 1,335 IPOs, we selected those where IPO proceeds were greater than or equal to $50 million for thematic analysis. That left us with a total of 808 IPOs that took place in the TMT sector globally from January 1, 2018, to December 31, 2021, with combined IPO proceeds of $461.6 billion.
- Each of these 808 selected IPOs were tagged to a theme to allow us to analyze the major trends in the IPO market since the beginning of 2018.

Reasons to Buy
- This report will help you understand the themes driving IPOs in the TMT sector. It identifies the themes generating the highest investor returns since 2018, including cloud, fintech, cybersecurity, mobile, and gaming.
- It also provides geographic analysis of TMT IPO activity since 2018, including analysis of why Chinese companies are abandoning US listings and returning home.
- The report includes a TMT IPO pipeline for 2022, giving readers an insight into the key IPOs planned for the coming year. ByteDance’s listing in China is expected to be the biggest IPO in 2022, and we will also see at least eight AI companies go public this year.
- Also included is analysis of IPO activity driven by 10 critical themes: ecommerce, mobile, fintech, cloud, electric vehicles, digital media, healthtech, Internet of Things, gaming, and artificial intelligence.
