Another year in the spotlight for logistics real estate?
2015 proved to be a banner year for activity in many logistics markets around the world. What changes will 2016 hold? In our second annual Global Logistics Sentiment Survey, we asked our industrial real estate and supply chain market experts to look back at the second half of 2015 – to then anticipate directional trends for the first half of this year. Being at the leading edge of market movement, with the information, intelligence, awareness and insights to make the best decisions – will be critical in 2016. Our first survey successfully gauged the path of international industrial & logistics markets for both corporate occupiers and investors. We think our second survey will do the same.
Is 2016 the year when some markets around the world begin to move at different paces? Here are a few trends our local experts tell us in this survey:
- Future expectations are slightly muted relative to our inaugural survey last year
- Even if not as high as last year, both occupier and investor demand is still projected to be significant—but available supply remains an issue
- Lower yields, along with rising rents, should support capital value growth for logistics product in each region in the next year
And we asked a new question this year: When market rents and capital values are expected to reach their peak.
Take a look at our report and learn more about these and other global logistics trends that may influence your business decisions over the next six months.
