An integral parts of Indian residential real estate’s coming-of-age process is the rise of *branded developers, who are outpacing their non-branded competition in overall housing launches. Reformatory changes led by demonetisation and RERA have spearheaded this movement.
More than 90 per cent consolidation in Indian real estate at project-level; only a few (such as Indiabulls) consider exiting realty business altogether. After DeMo wiped out fly-by-night and many small developers, liquidity crisis led Big Boys to take up stuck or delayed projects. Preferred consolidation models include JVs, alliance, development management contract, land monetisation.
Residential unit launches in H1 2019 increased by 21 per cent YoY to 0.11 mn units while sales grew by a steady 4 per cent YoY to 0.13 mn units. The residential market witnessed growth in supply as well as sales for the third consecutive half year period, both hitting their highest level since demonetisation during H2 2016
