Infrastructure and Corporate Real Estate in India

Infrastructure and Corporate Real Estate in India

January 2014

With a population of 1.2 billion, India is the second largest country in the world in terms of population. While the economy grew faster and stronger than most world economies during the global economic downturn, there has been a slowdown over the past year, with 2012-2013 being the year in which the economy grew at its slowest pace in a decade at five percent. High levels of inflation, slowdown in key Indian sectors, such as mining and manufacturing, as well as a sharp descent in the value of the rupee against the US Dollar (USD), have all been key factors in this slow growth. How do other factors, such as infrastructure, which is one of the major underpinnings of any economy, affect the country?s growth? Specifically, is infrastructure keeping up with one of Asia?s biggest economies, and how is any gap in supply and demand affecting the economy and, particularly, the Corporate Real Estate (CRE) profession?
