The real estate sector plays a vital role in the country’s economic growth story, be it as a contributor to the nation’s GDP or as a creator of jobs. Commercial real estate, comprising of Offices, Retail, Industrial Parks, Warehousing and Hospitality segments, has seen significant growth in recent years. Growth in investor interest, increase in rentals, and implementation of REITs has led to the strengthening of activities by established players in the commercial real estate sector.
While 2019 witnessed a record leasing (estimated 42 million sq. ft.), the first half of 2020 saw a slowdown unfortunately due to the pandemic. The recovery phase ever since has been a series of positive trends. A recent media report stated that the year 2021 is expected to witness close to 38-40 million sq. ft. of new completions, while the net absorption is likely to hover around 32-35 million sq. ft., at par with the annual net absorption levels seen during 2016-2018.

Additionally, PMAY, among others, will result in bringing back the rising demand for real estate and infrastructure.
