Housing Finance: Sector outlook

The Indian housing finance market has seen robust growth in the past few years, with the future looking equally promising on the back of the government’s focus on affordable housing. India’s housing finance market is expected to witness a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13-15% between FY23 and FY26.

Incentives provided by central and state governments to the housing sector, an increased supply of affordable homes, rising demand for affordable homes in tier 2/3/4 cities, and low home loan interest rates augur well for companies operating in this space.

Since Aadhar Housing Finance is the largest player in the affordable home loan segment, it is well placed to leverage its dominance to tap the growth potential of the industry.
