India is ranked 20th in the list of world's top real estate investment markets with investment volume of $3.4 billion in 2012, property consultant Cushman & Wakefield said in its latest report.

The consultant said the global property investment market grew by 6 per cent in 2012 to $929 billion and is expected to cross $1 trillion mark in 2013, the first time since 2007.

"India was (20th) among the top 20 real estate investment markets globally with investment volume of Rs 19,000 crore ($3,466 million) recorded in 2012," C&W said.

The majority of the investments in India were through institutional sales (67 per cent) while remaining were through private equity (PE) investments (33 per cent).

Bengaluru saw the highest number and value of private equity investments at Rs 3,250 crore (Rs 32.50 billion) in 2012, posting more than double of investment over last year, followed by Mumbai with Rs 1,300 crore (Rs 13 billion) and NCR with Rs 700 crore investments.
