The Indian economy has witnessed robust growth in the last few years and is expected to be one of the fastest growing economies in the coming years. Demand for commercial property is being driven by India’s economic growth. Real estate in India contributes about 5 per cent to India’s gross domestic product (GDP). The total revenue generated from the real estate sector in 2010-11 stood at US$ 66.8 billion.
The Indian real estate market size is expected to touch US$ 180 billion by 2020.
Demand for residential, commercial and retail real estate is rising throughout India, accompanied by increased demand for hotel accommodation and improved infrastructure. Growth prospects and price stability of smaller cities are attracting large real estate developers in such cities in the recent past. The sale of new residential apartments in 10 such smaller cities are at around US$ 4 billion in 2012.
Indian real estate emerged as the popular sector for private equity (PE) funds, investing around US$ 1,700 million in this sector during 2011.
