Demand for Commercial Space in India

The boom in real estate sector of India can be broadly categorized into two broad segments i.e demand for commercial properties and demand for residential properties. The demand for commercial properties in India has been increasing with the opening up of the economy.

The developed cities in India have been the investment destination for big multinational companies. The companies from almost all the sectors lead by software and IT-enabled companies have been expanding their operations in India. Most of the big names in the IT and BPO industry have established themselves here. This development has created a huge demand for commercial properties. Companies look for space to set-up their corporate office and there is heavy demand for properties with good infrastructure, connectivity and a real value for money.

There is an all round development happening in India. The increase of business has propelled the development of more and more commercial properties in India. To meet the requirements government is also promoting the development of hotels, airports and other infrastructures. A lot of special economic zones and industrial properties are being approved and developed to promote business in remote regions.

Another aspect of this increasing demand for commercial properties in the metro cities is the strict regulations by the government to stop all commercial activities in the residential areas. The commercial or business activities should only be carried in the commercially approved spaces so that the life in the residential areas is not disturbed. Hence, the demand for commercial space India has gone up remarkably.

The prices of the commercial properties are also touching sky due to shortage of quality space. There are huge business towers and commercial spaces created by the reputed builders like DLF and Unitech. These properties are as per the international standards and offer all kinds of facilities as required by the big clients. Although India has been successful in meeting the requirements of the clients, still there is a long way to go. The economy is expanding and big players of the corporate world are going to set up their operations. For example the retail sector is poised for a huge growth in Real Estate India and this has already created a competition amongst the companies to acquire the best possible commercial space to market their products.
