  • The market value of Adani’s listed firms has grown over 5 times in the last one year.
  • The group’s listed companies’ market capitalisation has increased from ₹1.64 lakh crore to ₹8.5 lakh crore in this time.
  • Four out of the six companies have added more than ₹1 lakh crore to investor wealth, each.
  • Here’s a glance at how all the six listed Adani Group companies have performed over the last one year in the share market.
The rise of Gautam Adani, and his group of companies, has been meteoric over the last few years. The Ahmedabad-based group has leapfrogged from being a medium-sized one to one of the richest family-based businesses in India, leaving behind the likes of the Tatas, Birlas, Wadias among others.

Only Mukesh Ambani stands ahead of Gautam Adani in terms of wealth. Ambani’s fortune stands at $77 billion, Adani is not far behind at $69 billion. In fact, since the beginning of 2021, Adani has added ₹75 crore per hour to his wealth, after Jeff Bezos and French luxury Tycoon Bernard Arnault, who was briefly the richest person in the world.

The story behind the rapid rise in Gautam Adani’s wealth and profile is the group’s focus on infrastructure investments. Over the last two years, the Adani group has made acquisitions worth ₹50,000 crore – of those, ₹25,000 crore came in the last year alone.

Even as the world – and India – was reeling under the COVID-19 pandemic, Adani group companies across power, ports, gas distribution, power transmission sectors have seen a multi-fold surge in their market capitalisation – some of these have seen an increase of nearly 11 times in share prices.

In total, the six Adani Group companies had a market cap of ₹1.64 lakh crore this time, last year. This has now surged to over ₹8.5 lakh crore – an increase of over 420%.


Here’s a quick snapshot of how all the six Adani group companies listed on the stock exchanges have performed over the last 12 months:
