In recent years, gated communities have grown in popularity in Pakistan, with a rise in the number of such communities. According to the Federal Board of Revenue, the real estate industry in Pakistan is worth about 700 billion dollars, and it accounts for nearly 2% of Pakistan’s total GDP. It not only creates a large number of direct jobs but also stimulates demand in over 250 different industries. In 2015-16, construction in gated communities increased by 15 to 20%, with 20 to 25 large projects completed during that period. Despite its rapid growth and strong job demand, the real estate market is still being under-researched and unexplored.
