Asia Pacific Industrial MarketView Q2 2011

By on Aug 26, 2011 in Research


• Industrial production slows in aftermath of Japan earthquake
Industrial production in Asia Pacific slowed in the second quarter as the March 11 earthquake in Japan disrupted regional supply chains. The negative impact is expected to be short-term, however, with the automotive and electronics sectors in Japan already beginnning to restore production capacity. Strong regional currencies, particularly in Australia, China and Japan, lowered the competitiveness of manufacturers’ produucts in those markets, placing profitability under pressure.

• Rental growth moderates in Asia while Pacific remains stable
The The CB Richard Richard Ellis Asia Pacific Pacific Logistics Rental Index rose by 11.44% q-o-q in the second quarter compared to a 2.2% q-o-q increase in the previous quarter. Almost all markets recordedd lower rental growth except Beijing and Chengdu which remained under tight supply pressure. Rents in most Pacific cities remained stable as landlords offered incentives to retain tenants under the strong currency environment.
