Residential supply increased by 24% in 9M 2019 compared with the same period the previous year: CBRE




On an annual basis, residential supply increased by 24% in 9M 2019, compared with the same period the previous year.

Sales activity too improved by 26% during the same period. The growth can be attributed to the sustained efforts of the central government to strengthen the sector, with the announcement of National Infrastructure Pipeline and allocation Rs 100 lakh crores for infrastructure development in the next five years with INR 1.7 lakh crore to be spent on developing transport infrastructure.

With the focus on affordable housing and launch of several flagship schemes such as Smart Cities, Swachh Bharat, AMRUT, Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM), and Housing for All, India strides into the next phase of growth. The demand will be concentrated towards the affordable and mid-segment, with projects being launched in locations with developed social and physical infrastructure.

With millennials shifting to the suburb areas for better job opportunities, combined with infrastructure development, developers are looking at shifting their focus to these areas, which were initially categorized as an agricultural or underdeveloped society.  With major infrastructure projects, new launches will continue to rise, and affordable segment will continue to drive the sector. This development will enable the substantial growth of housing in the urban metropolitan as well as undiscovered peripheral city centers.
