 Asia Pacific Industrial & Logistics MarketView Q3 2013

  • The CBRE Asia Pacific Logistics Rental Index recorded an increase of 1.4% q-o-q in Q3 2013, a slight improvement on the 0.9% q-o-q rise in Q2 2013.
  •  Leasing activity was generally steady supported by firm demand in a number of key locations including Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo. However, weaker sentiment in emerging markets and slower industrial production growth resulted in more subdued demand for space in other markets.
  •  Demand during the quarter was led by logistics, e-commerce and retail companies. Firms in these sectors are expected to remain active in the leasing market as regional economies will become increasingly driven by consumer demand.
  •  Industrial and logistics rents are expected to record slower growth over the next six months. Whilst rental growth in markets such as Tokyo, Shanghai and Hong Kong will remain firm, other markets including Australia, tier II cities in China, the Philippines, Vietnam and India are expected to see slower rental growth.
