The Indian Real Estate market as on November 2017 has seen a few large developers with a pan-India presence dominate the market throughout the year. Another major observation in the world of real estate was that the operating model shifted from sales to lease & maintenance.

Evidently, the real estate market 2017 has seen a rapid growth in service sectors like IT/ITeS, BFSI & Telecom and has seen a rising demand from MNCs for office space in Tier 2 cities.

Hence, the growth of this sector can also be credited to the growth of the corporate environment and the demand for office space and accommodations.

Interest by sub-region:
