“Leased manufacturing spaces provide the fastest real estate entry routes to manufacturers in most non-polluting industries in India. Ready and built-to-suit leased factories also provide the ‘capex-light’ advantage to manufacturers as the cost of land and buildings is outsourced to developers, acting as a risk mitigation tool,” said Yogesh Shevade, head of Logistics & Industrial, India, JLL.

“India has emerged as a significant alternative in the regionalization of manufacturing supply chain in the world.
