Tech, consumer and finance to drive IPO activity
From a sectoral perspective, tech and telecom is expected to drive the rebound in IPO activity in 2018, aided by the Chinese government’s efforts to spur tech firms to go public. With household spending remaining strong globally, consumer companies should also benefit from positive market conditions. Likewise, with low interest rates likely to support household and corporate borrowing in the next few years, finance issues should also drive IPO activity higher.
