Market Overview

As a result of COVID-19-induced lockdowns, the mutual fund industry's SIP collections fell by 4% to Rs 96,000 crore in the 2020-21 fiscal year, resulting in income uncertainty. Many investors chose to halt their SIPs as a result of the coronavirus epidemic, which resulted in lockdowns in March 2020 and raised income uncertainty. The decline in SIP inflows after March 2020 demonstrated this. 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 Indian Mutual Fund Industry for the month of February 2022 stood at ₹ 38,56,140 crore. The Industry’s AUM had crossed the milestone of ₹10 Trillion (₹10 Lakh Crore) for the first time in May 2014 and in a short span of about three years, the AUM size had increased more than two folds and crossed ₹ 20 trillion (₹20 Lakh Crore) for the first time in August 2017. The AUM size crossed ₹ 30 trillion (₹30 Lakh Crore) for the first time in November 2020. The Industry AUM stood at ₹37.56 Trillion (₹ 37.56 Lakh Crore) as on February 28, 2022.

Digital penetration, government targeting smart cities and increased data speeds are also facilitating the drift of asset share towards smaller cities and towns. Increased retail contribution through SIPs shows the power of digital penetration in India.

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