India’s warehousing market is the middle of a makeover. Musty godowns with dusty approach roads, limited infrastructure and poorly structured storage are rapidly being replaced by more modern facilities. These warehouses, classified as Grade A variants, offer its users steel structures, are waterproof, have good ventilation, lighting and proper fire safety equipment, and are being lapped up across the country.
As this grade of warehouses becomes increasingly common, all types of companies are racing to sew up deals for space. According to data from real estate consultancy JLL, India’s warehousing market is expected to attract investments of over USD 10 billion in the next four or five years, with an addition of around 200 million square feet of space. Total supply of warehouse space is expected to double by 2022. While total stock went up by 22% in 2018, absorption rocketed 60%, leaving vacancies at below 10%, the consultancy reported.
