CEE BPO/SSC Sector - A thoroughbred racer

The “thoroughbred” status of the CEE-6 markets in the global BPO (“business process outsourcing”) and SSC (“shared service centre”, together “BPO/SSC”), arena is well-documented, award-winning and ongoing. We assess in this report important questions surrounding labour cost, labour availability and quality in over 20 key CEE-6 cities, as well as the demand effect on office take-up in 12 city markets. The BPO/SSC take-up is over 60% of total office take-up in 4 of those cities in H1 2017. Vacant stock is diminishing, due also to strong general economic conditions and developers are only just beginning to react to the phenomenon. Click here for the complete report.


Investment flows into the CEE-6 region’s commercial real estate markets rose 12% yoy in the first nine months of 2017. The EUR 7.6bn closed deal total coupled with a still full pipeline of deals under consideration suggests that the annual cycle high of EUR 12.2bn invested last year is likely to be matched or overhauled. Our enclosed 2017 Q3 CEE Investment Scene contains the breakdown of the EUR 2.2bn capital deployed into the CEE-6 countries in the latest quarter. Click here for the complete report.


We present our viewpoint on the factors driving the take-up of the likely 1.1mn sqm of real estate space in of 2017 and c.0.8m sqm in 2018 by auto producers and component suppliers in the CEE-6 countries.

EUR 134bn of exports is considerable spending firepower in the short run, whilst also making relevant the biggest potential disruptor in the medium term, that of the advent of the electric car.
