In time of economic boom, it assist in the provision of finance for expansion, retooling and establishment of production facilities. Also incurrent period of recession it has been providing finance for maintaining existing facilities diversification and acquisitions. The capital market spearheads the ongoing prudential structural adjustment of our national economy which will call for huge financial commitments of a reasonable proportion of the financial needs. Under this structure re arrangement will certainly be met through the assistance of the Nigerian capital market.

A said feature of the Nigerian economic landscape is the large number of industrial projects of the federal and state government as well as the compelling if an unequipped private sector to assume greater responsibilities in the economy in order to who may concern reduced the domineering status of foreign bodies.

The oil boom of the 1970;s made it possible for government to embark on various industrial projects.
However, the non- completion or under utilization cases where some of them are sully executed of these projects an owners to waste of scare services resources under the government industrialization programme consideration are given to the small and medium scale enterprises (SME) which form the center or the industrial development of the country.

Unfortunately, the SME are only living in the shadows of large business for so long hence their importance as roots to the economic health of a nation have been forgotten the problems of SME ranges from improper policies which has been constitutes by the authorities guiding them to the problems of taste of the Nigerians citizens with regards to foreign products as well as the problems of finances for the formation and sustenance or SME’s.

5.0 Summary, Conclusion And Recommendations

5.1 Summary

In the originally essay, we have been able to discuss briefly the definition of capital market. Its historical evolution in Nigerian and its activities in the Nigerian capital market.

Consequently, it was discovered that there are some problems facing the Nigerian capital market and the remove which will lend to the development of an effective Nigerian capital market.

The effective capital market will invariably lead to industrial and economic development by the fund they mobilized.

Also, it was discovered that capital market stock market will succeed in development encouraged the flow of saving or purchased of securities issues by government or private sector enterprises and other for the foreign implementation and operation of capital projects. More so industrial country’s economic policies do not foster harmony between it s capital market to allow for inflow of foreign portfolio.


5.2 Conclusions

In the previous chapter an economic methods was used to carry out the test that the Nigerian capital market does not mobilize adequate fund for industrial development in which case, it was accepted prior to the result.

In the real life sense, avenues upon which an economy raises or generates fund for its development is numerous. Nevertheless if development is to take place there should be a significant investment in real capital which can be possible through a mechanism such as the capital market which collects the money capital of saver and channels it to the system investors.

When the capital is efficiently allocated between computing ends and savings channeled into investments, industrial growth and development will be achievement since there are other avenues by which an industry raises funds, one will fully subscribe the fact that the funds for development.
