Affordable Housing Market Research, 2031

The global affordable housing market size was valued at $52.2 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $84.7 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2022 to 2031. The market for affordable housing is anticipated to expand at a remarkable rate during the forecast period. The growing middle-class population and expanding working population are driving the market for affordable homes. This has caused a significant influx of migrants, particularly in Tier 1 cities, who are moving there for employment and educational reasons. During the projected period, this is expected to support market growth.

Additionally, it is anticipated that ease of access to home financing will fuel market expansion during the forecast period. Furthermore, it is anticipated that the Indian government's goal of "Housing for everyone by FY2023" will open up profitable chances for market expansion. This gained momentum when the union government announced an extension of the ability to deduct additional interest expenses up to a certain amount on loans for affordable houses by an additional one year till 31 March FY2023 in the Budget FY2022. Such initiatives by the government are driving the affordable housing market growth.

Affordable Housing Market by Providers

All major cities in developed nations have reached a saturation point where expansion of city boundaries and economy has stalled or has a very low growth rate restraining the affordable housing market share. For instance, in the U.S., the residential real estate market witnessed a drop-in rate of sales of affordable housing and residential properties in major cities such as Washington D.C., owing to rise in prices of properties and drop in investments by foreign investors.

Furthermore, during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, construction, manufacturing, hotel, and tourism industries were majorly affected. Manufacturing activities were halted or restricted. Construction and transportation activities, along with their supply chains, were hampered on a global level. This led to decline in construction of affordable housing as well as their demand in the market, thereby restraining the growth of the affordable housing market. Conversely, industries are gradually resuming their construction and services. This is expected to lead to re-initiation of construction industry at their full-scale capacities, which helped the affordable housing industry to recover by end of 2021.

Analyst Review

The global affordable housing market witnessed a huge demand in Asia-Pacific followed by North America & Europe. LAMEA is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Affordable housing is defined as housing that is fundamentally affordable for individuals whose income is lower than or equal to the national average for all households. The population of Tier 1 cities expanded due to a significant influx of migrants for societal and economic reasons. Both in rural and urban regions, old apartments are being renovated and are seen as being affordable. Purchasing land and constructing a home can be challenging for an individual or real estate developers due to escalating legal concerns and a growing number of lenders' involvement. This increases the need for affordable housing .

The development of infrastructure is strongly impacted by increased urbanization, and this is anticipated to increase the demand for affordable housing. Moreover, decrease in new construction activities in developed nations restrain the market growth. Government also launch policy to drive demand for the affordable housing market. For instance, Europe launched “First Home” scheme which offers 30% to 50% discount on buying new house in specified areas. Such instances are expected to offer lots of opportunities during the forecast period.
