The recovery in commercial real estate, especially office spaces, after the Covid19 pandemic is getting broad-based as indicated by the rising number of small and mid-size leases and outright transactions across segments and key property markets.
The commercial office segment, which was significantly impacted by the pandemic, has made a strong comeback in the last 3-4 quarters, supported by strong economic growth, increased hiring, and a return to the office trend, keeping the office sector buoyant.
The Indian office market grew substantially and delivered a strong performance in the first half of 2022. Office transactions recorded at 25.3 million sq ft, a 107% on-year growth, indicated the potential of the market on the back of a waning pandemic and the promise of a sustained economic recovery.
The IT and ITeS segments are among the prime drivers of overall leasing activity in the top cities and bulk hiring by these firms will influence demand for large quality office spaces.
