Revealed: Largest stock exchanges in the world by market capitalization, 2024

New York Stock Exchange (NYSE)

The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is the largest stock exchange globally, boasting an equity market capitalization exceeding US$28.42 trillion as of March 2024. Following closely behind are the tech-heavy NASDAQ, at US$25.43 trillion, Euronext, at US$7.22 trillion, and the Japan Exchange Group, at US$6.66 trillion.

The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the Nasdaq, the top two exchanges in the world, together account for 42.4% of global market capitalization. Since 2016, the NYSE has grown by 35.1%, while the Nasdaq has seen a staggering 189.3% increase in market cap. The Shanghai Stock Exchange holds the fifth position globally with a market cap of $6.55 trillion, and the National Stock Exchange of India ranks sixth with a market cap of $4.65 trillion.

A stock exchange serves as a marketplace where stockbrokers, traders, buyers, and sellers can actively trade equity products. The largest exchanges boast thousands of listed companies. These companies offer shares of their business, providing the general public with the opportunity to invest. The Frankfurt Stock Exchange stands as the oldest stock exchange globally, established in the late sixteenth century.

Market capitalization: Market capitalization, commonly known as “market cap,” is a definitive measure of the total market value of a company’s outstanding shares on the stock market. It serves as a robust indicator of a company’s relative size and value, encompassing critical factors such as risk and market perception. Based on their market capitalization, companies are distinctly classified as large-cap (>10 billion), mid-cap (2 to 10 billion), and small-cap (300 million to 2 billion).
