Indian industrial and warehousing sector is expected to see an investment inflow of $3.6 billion, which is likely to touch $7 billion by 2021. This growth is mainly due to factor such as the rise in the demand for larger facilities from e-commerce companies as the sector is becoming more organised. Moreover, the transformation is brought about by government initiatives, global trade dynamics, an influx of technology and evolving consumption patterns. Further, occupier preferences are changing that is driving the increase in the investor interest.
“Occupiers mulling large contiguous warehouse leases, especially in the e-commerce and 3PL sectors, should look at select micromarkets in Mumbai and Pune that offer a good mix of industrial and multi-purpose warehouses. Bengaluru should also be explored as it offers seamless transfer of goods between states, benefitting from the removal of state-level taxes”, said Sankey Prasad, Managing Director and Chairman at Colliers International India.
The industrial and warehousing sector in India has attracted significant investor interest since 2017 led by robust demand from e-commerce and other consumer-led occupiers.
