35 Years of Sensex in One Graph
This infographic explains how the sectoral variety of the Sensex has changed over the last 35 years. Sensex of 1986 was dominated by the Materials and Consumer Discretionary (Luxury) sectors, accounting for two-thirds of the firms on the Sensex.
Sectors like financials, telecommunications, and information technology were non-existent in the index then. With the entry of these new sectors, today’s Sensex is far less concentrated than the Sensex of the 1980s and 1990s and mirrors the far lower sectoral concentration of the Indian economy as a whole.
This chart filled with its pop of colors melting together will create hours of conversations and is a must-have for anyone interested in the Indian economy.
