With the world leaning significantly towards all things tech, technology companies are seeing rapid growth by the minute. In 2013, the US witnessed bulk IPOs from the tech industry, a marked improvement since the temporary dip during the 2009-2010 recession.

Much has been written about who came out as clear winners amongst tech IPOs. But, if you pay less attention to the success stories of individual companies and take a step back, you’ll see how tech companies are taking over the bigger picture.

Out of the 222 companies that went public in 2013, 45 were tech companies.

 

That said, let’s take a look at why diverting your attention to tech IPOs can prove to be a good idea:

After Alibaba filed to go public in September 2014, the IPO market saw the technology industry chasing new horizons. The market is now bustling with news from a number of tech enterprises who are positive to go public soon. With leading companies like Palantir, Dropbox, Spotify, Cloudera, Good Technology, Airbnb, and Deem looking to go public in 2015, the technology industry will soon be making waves in the IPO market.

Tech IPOs Are The New Black

The growing need for cloud computing, database management, and software is helping companies build a strong client base. This, coupled with a fast-growing Internet, is sending technology concerns down the IPO road, expanding the market significantly. Add that to the growing dependency of other industries on the technology sector, and you have an exponential growth forecast for tech ventures.

A List Of Startups In The Top IPO List

A number of startups across the US and the rest of the world are rapidly climbing the industry ladder. Companies like Airbnb, Snapchat, and Square are slowly shedding their private skins and taking daring risks by entering the stock market. This can be beneficial to you, because these startups are valued at an average of $5 billion and tend to offer stocks at a relatively low rate.

Successful Tech IPOs In The Past

With Alibaba named the biggest initial public offering in the history of IPOs, the stock market has been showing a favorable inclination towards the tech industry. But, the Chinese e-commerce giant was not the only tech company to launch a grand opening.

Zendesk, a customer service software company, witnessed a swift shift from its initial share price of $9 to $20-$25 in no time. The IPO success story of Twitter is another that has been brewing a new wave of tech IPOs around the world. While all tech companies might not make history, it is pretty evident that tech giants like Alibaba, Twitter, and Facebook have set the ball in motion for technology-based enterprises. The success of these tech giants in the past is a clear indicator why you should pay more attention to existing and upcoming tech IPOs.

If you aren’t convinced yet,  consider this tidbit – if you had invested $1000 in the initial public offerings of Amazon, Ebay, Yahoo, Google, Linkedin, and Facebook, this is what you would have made by 2013.

Don’t miss out on making big bucks on potentially successful tech companies again. Pay close attention to the tech IPOs that are lined up in the near future, analyze the company’s growth, financials, and market strategy. And as always, invest wisely.
