Despite geopolitical challenges, high global inflation and economic recessionary concerns, private equity investments maintained the momentum, offering favourable opportunities for both global and domestic institutional investors.

Savills India expects $3.5 billion to $4.0 billion of private equity investments in real estate in 2024. Amidst limited investable grade assets, the office segment might see muted investments, while alternative sectors like life sciences, data centres and student housing are poised for prominence, it said.

The investor base is anticipated to broaden, especially from Asian institutional investors. In 2023, Japanese investors notably intensified their commitments in real estate, from direct purchases to forming joint ventures.

“Despite the global geopolitical and economic turmoil in the post-pandemic world, India has established itself as the strongest destination in emerging markets for real estate investors. This is a result of the inherent strength of India's demographics and economic potential, boosted by a slew of progressive regulatory changes across sectors, especially in real estate, as witnessed in record residential sales and office leasing," said Diwakar Rana, Managing Director, Capital Markets, Savills India.
