The total debt market has a potential of INR 14,00,000 crore (USD 170 billion) financing opportunity in Indian Real Estate between 2024-2026. This presents a substantial growth opportunity for lenders to cater to the needs of landlords/developers soon. This opportunity comes from two primary market segments, the construction finance or long-term debt, and lease rental discounting, both slated for unprecedented growth over 2024-2026 period.

It is estimated that the long-term debt requirement in the residential market alone will amount to nearly INR 430,000 crore by 2026. Additionally, India's real estate construction market, comprising various asset classes like commercial offices, malls, warehousing parks, and data centers, is predicted to grow by 35-40% over the same period, with an estimated potential of INR 550,000 - 600,000 crore.

The residential sector dominates construction finance in India, accounting for approximately 70% of the market. However, there is still a significant gap between the total residential construction debt requirement and the sanctioned debt, indicating untapped potential. The current gap between sanctioned and market debt stands at ~INR 150,000 crore.

Overall, the Indian real estate market presents significant opportunities for lenders, investors, and borrowers. With the sector's rapid growth and the availability of diverse financing options, stakeholders should seize these opportunities to drive economic development through strategic debt financing.
