Among the business houses, Adani Group has the second highest market capitalization. The market capitalization of the group has increased due to the increase in the share price of Adani Ports and Adani Green. Shares of pharmaceutical companies also rose due to the Covid epidemic and Dilip Shanghvi-promoted Sun Pharma's stock rose nearly 42 per cent during this period.

Similarly, the market capitalization of Shiv Nadar Group has increased by about 30 per cent. The total market capitalization of the professionals-led HDFC and ICICI group has been less than Rs 1 lakh crore and has not been included in this analysis.
