This represents a less significant year-on-year (Y-o-Y) drop of 13 per cent from 111,657 units in Q2 2023. It says part of the decline in new supply in Q2 being an election quarter, during which developers often hold back on new project launches.

The PropEquity report underscores that despite the declines in new launches and sales, the overall market health remains positive.

The fact that absorption rates are 20 per cent higher than new supply signals sustained demand and the continuing robustness of the residential real estate sector post-COVID-19. The report also notes that Q1 2024 was an exceptional quarter with the highest absorption levels ever recorded, making the subsequent Q2 decline appear more significant in contrast.

Commenting on the Q2 report, Samir Jasuja, CEOMD of PropEquity, stated, "The marginal drop of new launch supply in top tier 1 cities is just 8 per cent which is primarily due to election quarterQ2 being slightly sluggish as compared to other quarters of the year. However, the 20 per cent higher Absorption/Sales as compared to new supply signifies upswing and good health in residential real estate continues and the market continues to be robust post covid."
