Krishna Ventures Ltd Management Discussions.

Industry Structure and Development

The Indian real estate and construction industry is the second largest employer in the nation after agriculture. Its contributions to infrastructure influence significantly the growth and development of other sectors such as information technology, retail, hospitality, healthcare and manufacturing. More generally, its growth acts as a multiplier and generates economic growth in the long term. The demand for quality housing and commercial real estate is likely to be sustained for a number of reasons such as the growth of the organized retail market following the liberalization of foreign direct investment in the multi-brand segment which has attracted mega players like Walmart, Bharti and Reliance Industries Limited.

In particular, the growth of the Indian real estate industry is likely to accelerate on account of the likely resurgence in the private housing sector on account of new government initiatives, an increase in the number of Public Private Partnerships to accelerate the rate of economic growth, the development of logistics and supply chain initiatives on account of an overhaul of distribution networks in the organized retail sector, an increase in the number of renewable energy projects leading to a sustained demand for infrastructure growth and growth of the hospitality sector and the domestic and international tourism industry.

The growth of the Indian real estate sector is not entirely free from constraints which take a number of forms. Some of them include the rising cost of land, price volatility, delay in government approvals, inadequate availability of capital, stricter lending requirements, regulatory risks, underdeveloped infrastructure and non-availability of skilled manpower. More generally, the Indian real estate sector, despite its contributions to the Indian economy, has not been accorded industry status and does not have sufficient representation in the planning of infrastructure and other auxiliary facilities.

Opportunities and Threats:

Continuous private sector housing boom will create more construction opportunities.

Public sector projects through Public Private Partnerships will bring further opportunities.
