Singapore Real Estate Market Sizing Approach and Market Limitations

Market Sizing Approach

Initially, we have compiled a list of prominent companies in real estate industry in Singapore and have approached the management of these companies including business development manager, sales and marketing head, procurement managers and others to understand the revenues, their growth, distribution networks, profit margins, concentration by geography and industry verticals.

Data and Information is available on reports from, UBS, Coliers, Knight and Frank and websites of statistical department and ministries. The data is collated, sanity check of the information is done by confirming it with various industry experts and seeks justification for such numbers. Reference was taken form the annual report, company websites (country based) and press release to gain some insights about company performance.

Our team then collated the data shared by the industry experts belonging to these companies and extrapolated on the basis of the market share, pricing and rental and buildings constructed and also re-checked it with the data available in secondary sources and proprietary databases.

We have conducted multiple CATIs with industry experts and management of various real estate related companies in Singapore to understand their business models, major applications, revenue stream, product portfolio and other market parameters. This helped us in estimating revenue generated in the Singapore real estate market.

Market Limitations

There might be a case that the chief executives / representatives / dealers might be bullish with the numbers. We have cross checked and revalidated the data, collected with our hypothesis and question them on the numbers. But in the end, justification provided by a primary might / might not be satisfactory on the numbers as there is no right mechanism to revalidate their numbers. Henceforth in this scenario, the team has applied a discounting factor to the numbers decided through interviews conducted from other industry representatives since it appeared bullish to our logical thought process.

The market size, segmentation and market share have been computed by taking the maximum retail price, the discounts and other deductions by builders, brokers and others are not considered in this study.

Since the competition between builders in the industry is high, key management executives of builders and brokers have not divulged margins of different revenue streams. Several key decision makers from these companies were contacted but they were unwilling to provide such confidential details.

Future growth model has been built on the basis of future developments and opinions received from key industry veterans of the market followed by subjective analysis with margin of error not more than 10%.
