India Mutual Fund Market Analysis

As a result of COVID-19-induced lockdowns, the mutual fund industry's SIP collections fell by 4% to INR 96,000 crore in FY 2020-2021. This resulted in income uncertainty. Many investors chose to halt their SIPs as a result of the pandemic. From a peak of Rs 8,641 crore, the contribution fell for 11 months in a row before breaking through to new highs.

The average assets under management (AAUM) of the Indian Mutual Fund Industry for February 2022 stood at INR 38,56,140 crore. The industry’s AUM had crossed the milestone of INR 10 trillion (INR 10 lakh crore) for the first time in May 2014. In around three years, the AUM increased more than twofold, and in August 2017, it crossed INR 20 trillion (INR 20 lakh crore) for the first time. The AUM size crossed INR 30 trillion (INR 30 lakh crore) for the first time in November 2020. The industry's AUM was INR 37.56 trillion (INR 37.56 lakh crore) as of February 28, 2022.

The rising digital penetration, smart cities, and increased data speeds also facilitate the drift of asset shares toward smaller cities and towns. The increased retail contribution through SIPs shows the level of digital penetration in India.

The total number of accounts (or folios, as per mutual fund parlance) as of February 28, 2022, was 12.61 crore (126.1 million units).
