Industrial Real Estate

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic highlighted the importance of good supply chain management and logistic networks. While neither investment volumes, nor take up are immune to the economic effects of the virus, in 2020, the sector was in a good place to face a challenge. The pandemic has accelerated processes that were a long time in the making: With many brick-and-mortar shops closed during nationwide lockdowns, the e-commerce sector surged, boosting demand for warehouse space.
Meanwhile, there are additional factors that influence the role of industrial and logistic properties such as the United Kingdom’s Brexit journey and the United States’ aspirations to decrease their dependence on Chinese imports. Coming up with a forecast on the sector’s future is a challenging task but one thing is for sure – industrial and logistic real estate is an asset class to keep an eye on.

In the first half of 2020, the ten leading European markets saw take up of over 12.2 million square feet of industrial and logistic space. While leasing activity fell below the half-year average of the last five years, the decrease was minor considering the devastating effects of the pandemic on the global economy, manufacturing output and consumer sentiment.
