As 2018 comes to an end, real estate experts have concluded that commercial real estate especially that catering to coworking was the real winner. Meanwhile, there was an increase in demand for logistics and warehousing.

Data collected by American commercial real estate services company Cushman & Wakefield shows 50 million square feet of commercial area was leased this year in India. There were a lot of rentals by the IT-BPM companies and international companies, the majority of which opted for coworking spaces. Interestingly, 77 percent of investors in the commercial estate were global companies.

More than 32 million square feet of fresh office space supply is estimated to happen soon. Bengaluru stayed on top by providing fresh office space supply of 8 million square feet. It is expected to cross 11 million square feet by the end of the fourth quarter of 2018.

This growth happened due to the availability of lots of talent, lots of vigorous start-ups, tons of Grade A office stock, affordable rent prices and stable demand from the IT/ITeS sectors, BFSI and co-working spaces.

According to data collected by property consultants Anarock, total office absorption across the top seven cities will be more than 39 million square feet by the end of 2018. 28.2 million square feet was already absorbed until the third quarter of 2018.
