Analysis of the growth in real estate sector in last few years was performed. It revealed some very interesting statistics of the growth. The facts go like this:
In 2007, the office sector experienced highest demand. Grade A office space of about 32 million sq ft leased out in that year. But after that, it has been a decline throughout. In 2008, it reduced to 28 million and a further decrease to 21 million in 2009. However, now a growth back to 28-29 million is seen. Although it is less than what was in 2007, but still is complementary. This demand majorly comes from infrastructure companies, from Indian corporate who wish to merge, from pharmaceutical etc and it is at pace in Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai.
After the office space, we move on to the residential sector, where once again these three cities are putting their landmarks. Even on the account of increasing prices, these cities have managed to go through a rise in demand. In cities like Mumbai where the pricing went through a downfall of around 25-30%, it has once again come back with the demand as well as pricing. However, the situation is not the same in the other regions of India as far as residential sector is concerned.
Next comes the retail sector. This sector has not seen much growth. Although the demand from some new Indian corporate, the existing retailers and many foreign retailers, this sector still seems to be gloomy for now.
