This reflects the advances in the retail sector, which is witnessing an expansion of well-organized retail spaces. Especially in the e-commerce sector, expansion is more due to the increased adoption of the Internet and mobile services. The growth of revenue in this sector is large because of the supply-side. Efficient inventory management and quick delivery are the keys to operational success. This has led to an increased need for efficiency in delivery systems, inventory management, and freight forwarding. As the market continues to expand, demand for logistics facilities also increases.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could hinder market growth is the high operational cost and competitive pricing.
