Industry Overview 

The real estate sector is one of the most globally recognized sectors. It comprises of four sub-sectors – housing, retail, hospitality, and commercial. The growth of this sector is well complemented by the growth in the corporate environment and the demand for office space as well as urban and semi-urban accommodation. The construction industry ranks 3rd among the 14 major sectors in terms of direct, indirect and induced effects in all sectors of the economy. The real estate sector is the second-highest employment generator, after the agriculture sector.

The real estate sector was facing a prolonged slowdown due to subdued sales and lack of funding access prior to the onset of the pandemic. The spread of the pandemic and the resulting nationwide lockdown further impacted the sector. While the pressure on the developers during the lockdown was mitigated due to the moratorium offered for their loan instalments under the Covid-19-related regulatory package announced by the RBI, a sustained pick-up in sales across geographies is key for the developers over the medium term. 

Having said that, Indian real estate sector is set to touch US$ 1 trillion by 2030, accounting for 18-20% of India GDP. Real estate demand for data centres is expected to increase by 15-18 million sq. ft. by 2025. Demand for residential properties has surged due to increased urbanisation and rising household income. India is among the top 10 price appreciating housing markets internationally.
