The Global Office Real Estate market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 3.5% during the forecast period of 2022-2027. The market is anticipated to bounce back to normalcy by the end of 2022.

COVID- 19 measures have resulted in the closure of offices, resulting in a decrease in demand for traditional office space. Beyond its immediate consequences, the pandemic has impacted the outlook for office real estate, given the emergence of trends such as the decline in demand for traditional offices as work-from-home policies gain traction. Empty office buildings are signs of the times. The pandemic's impact also reveals that price misalignments have increased. The misalignment is likely to decrease as the economy gets momentum. Even then, the sector will be challenged by potential structural changes in the office real estate market as a consequence of changing societal preferences.

To develop a hybrid workplace model, occupiers are likely to focus more on integrating traditional leased spaces, remote working options, and flexible spaces within real estate portfolios. Cost and portfolio optimization are expected to be the goals of the plan to decentralise the workplace and provide more locations to meet the needs of a more mobile workforce.

Globally, there is huge demand for coworking spaces. India is on the verge of a co-working revolution, with several major players competing for dominance across the country. It is also estimated that the number of coworking spaces in the United States will double or triple in the next five years.

Key Market Trends

Rise in Demand for Coworking Spaces

The coworking space market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.1% from $7.97 billion in 2020 to $8.14 billion in 2021. At a CAGR of 12%, the market is expected to reach $13.03 billion in 2025.

Companies are resuming operations and adapting to the new normal as they recover from the COVID-19 impact, which had previously resulted in restrictive containment measures such as social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities, all of which created operational challenges.

India is on the verge of a co-working revolution, with several major players competing for dominance across the country. Currently, there are nearly 3.7 lakh seats in tier 1 and tier 2 cities across the country, with a compound annual growth rate of 15% expected over the next five years. The Executive Centre's occupancy and foot traffic have increased from 75% in 2020 to 90% in October 2021 in major cities in India.

It is estimated that the number of coworking spaces in the United States will double or triple in the next five years. By 2030, JLL predicts that 30% of all office space will be consumed flexibly. According to the Global Coworking Growth Study, approximately 5 million people will be working from coworking spaces by 2024, up 158% from 2020.

Increasing Demand for Data Centres Driving the Market

Demand for data centre capacity is at an all-time high, with end-user spending on global data centre infrastructure approximately hitting $200 billion in 2021, up 6% from 2020. Furthermore, Microsoft's announcement of a plan to build up to 100 new data centres per year suggests that this trend will continue, and other companies may soon follow.

Increased demand for data centres was fueled by lifestyle changes prompted by the pandemic throughout 2021, and this growth is expected to continue through at least 2024. As remote work becomes more common and more activities move to the digital realm, internet usage has risen and will continue to rise, implying that data creation will rise as more users seek cloud-based services.

In addition, the purchase of internet-of-things (IoT) devices has increased at the same time. IoT devices will generate 73.1 zettabytes by 2025, and to store one zettabyte at current capacity, 1,000 data centres would be required. To put it another way, predicted data storage needs are high, and data centre operators must make sure they're maximising every square inch of their facilities to meet current data needs while also being able to handle future ones.

The data centre industry will need to be equipped to store increasingly large amounts of data as a result of increased demand. On the surface, building more data centres may appear to be a solution; however, lockdowns in 2020 caused more than 60% of new data centre construction was postponed.

Despite the fact that server CPUs are still plentiful, recent supply chain shortages are worsening the data centre construction situation as the industry struggles with absurdly high construction material prices. As a result, data centre construction will most likely take years to catch up to pre-pandemic levels, which will still difficult to match current demand.
