The global office relocation services market is worth US$ 10.6 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to expand steadily at a CAGR of 3.3% to reach US$ 14.6 billion by 2032.
Office relocation accounted for nearly 15% of the global relocation services market at the end of 2021 and is likely to maintain this share in the near future as well.
Market growth can be attributed to factors such as companies moving to remote work or hybrid work models, rising globalization, increasing compliance burdens, competitive advantages & supportive tax incentives to organizations, and many organizations remodelling or downsizing their office spaces.
Throughout the pandemic, office design renovations and the reduction of commercial office space have become increasingly popular. Businesses that have shifted to remote or hybrid workspaces have discovered that they don’t require as much space and are shrinking their offices to reduce overhead costs.
Additionally, there has been an increase in interest across industries in repurposing and rethinking how a company uses its office space. For instance, retail businesses, post-pandemic, devote more room to fulfilling e-Commerce orders than they did before as opposed to floor space for in-person shopping. Similarly, dining rooms have been replaced with ‘ghost kitchens’ in restaurants. All these factors result in increased need for office resettlement services.
