Industrial market sales in Q4 22 the lowest since 2020
Total transactions in the final quarter increased to $715.1m.
On the back of a hazier economic outlook and dampening of business sentiments, industrial market sales in the fourth quarter of 2022 went up to $715.1m, Knight Frank said.
This, however, is the lowest since the second quarter of 2020 when transactions totalled $324.8m due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Leasing transactions are still stable in the months of October and November 2022 as businesses in manufacturing and engineering continue their expansion.
Prices and rents in the industrial market will continue to stabilise with a marginal growth of 1% to 3% for the whole of 2023, Knight Frank projected.
In the logistics segment, where supply is limited, rents for quality warehouse space might soar by a higher 3% to 5% in 2023.
