Organised retail space in Mumbai is expected to grow by around 130 per cent, from 8.72 million sq ft at present to 20 million sq ft by 2012, according to Knight Frank India report.

The report, India Organised Retail Market 2010, forecasts that during 2010-12, around 55 million sq ft of retail space will be ready in Mumbai, NCR, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad and Pune. Besides, between 2010 and 2012, the organized retail real estate stock will grow from the existing 41 million sq ft to 95 million sq ft.

The report reveals an in-depth analysis of the dynamics of Organized Retail Market and the Real Estate Retail Potential (RERP) to identify the oversupply or undersupply situation in the retail space.

Knight Frank further estimates that by 2012, higher pace of real estate developments in comparison to the pace of organized retail market growth will create an oversupply situation of 21 million sq ft in 7 cities. Its examination of the state of affairs of the retail market implies that the frenetic rental hikes witnessed during the boom will not haunt retailers until 2012.

Dr Samantak Das, National Head—Research Knight Frank India said: Our research has undertaken an extensive survey of all major operational and upcoming malls and 2 prominent high streets in each of these 7 cities. The report determines the performance of the operational malls in terms of occupancy, rentals; retail formats and also foresees the demand-supply dynamics till 2012.”
