Engineering and Manufacturing Sector Becomes a Major Office Leasing Force in India
The Engineering and Manufacturing sector has become a major office leasing force in India, contributing a significant 15-18 percent share in the overall office leasing volume across the top eight cities in 2021 and 2022. This is the highest leasing done by the sector in history, as its share used to be not more than six percent on average during the 2017-18 period.
The growth of the Engineering and Manufacturing sector is being driven by several factors, including the Central Government’s Make in India initiative and the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) schemes. The sector is also benefiting from the increasing demand for chip manufacturing and electronic equipment.
The growth of the Engineering and Manufacturing sector has also positively impacted the flex space segment, as the sector’s contribution in the flex space market has grown from three percent to nine percent in the last three years (2020-22).
Real estate experts believe that the Engineering and Manufacturing sector will continue to be a major driver of office leasing demand in India in the coming years. The sector’s expansion is expected to create new opportunities for real estate development in the peripheral locations of major cities.
