Online Retailers and the Growth of 'Showrooming'

The growth rate of e-commerce sales is forecast to fall over the next four years and - like any other type of retailer - the online ‘pure-play brands’ are increasingly looking at how they can support future sales.
For many e-retailers, part of the remedy is to open ‘showrooms’ in physical shopping environments which both generate online sales and raise awareness of their brand.

Capital Flows: Developing not cooling

Despite all the ‘slowing’ trends typically associated with this late stage of the cycle – limited product for sale, low yields, investor caution – 2017 looks like it will closely match volumes recorded in 2016. The market is showing no sign of cooling, it is developing, with increasing evidence of activity in large-scale, construction projects. A trend likely to grow in 2018.

Hotel growth in Lisbon and Porto unparalleled in Europe

Tourism growth has been driving Portugal’s economy upwards. Lisbon and Porto hotel markets continue to exceed expectations, combining occupancy and prices increase. One year later, Colliers International updated information on both markets and estimates that Lisbon’s and Porto’s RevPAR will increase 13 and 15%, respectively.

International demand propells Lisbon’s resi market

Lisbon’s residential market has been growing. International demand explains an important slice of that growth, with Colliers International estimating it to account for a quarter of the overall market volume.

Porto records largest office deal

Porto's office market has surged in H1, recording, not only, the largest office deal in the country, but also 2 additional important deals, close to 2.000 sqm each. International demand has been driving this surge, turning Porto as a viable relocation option for important international corporations.

Hostel market keeps growing

Colliers International studied the hostel market in Lisbon and Porto, and concluded that bed supply has increased 15% yearly, in both cities. Overall, Lisbon has more than 4.000 hostel beds.

Supply Chain Disruptors

The growth of e-commerce, technology change and other cyclical and structural factors, like the crisis of the shipping industry, are reshaping supply chains and have major implications for industrial property portfolios/markets.

In the Balance

Colliers' latest report reveals that the correlation between growth in office-based jobs and office investment turnover during the last economic and investment cycle is absolutely clear. In order to maintain this positive outlook, the priority for major European cities has to be focused on generating more high-quality, value-added office-based jobs to drive occupier and investment demand for assets.

Hotel Investment Attractiveness Index

Paris has reached the top of Colliers International’s inaugural Hotel Investment Attractiveness Index, an analysis of the investment climate of 20 European cities, despite predictions that investors and tourists would lose faith in the city due to political uncertainty and the perceived threat following various national security breaches.

Cities of Influence

Colliers International new Cities of Influence Index places Lisbon as one of the most important cities in Southern Europe, as far as talent, location and cost.

EMEA TMT: An inside view

During 2016, Colliers International conducted a number of in-depth interviews with various global Tech, Media and Telecoms (TMT) companies. These interviews took place ‘pre-and-post’ Brexit, but all were ‘pre-Trump’.

December boosts Lisbon's office market

Colliers International studied Lisbon’s office market and concluded that late year increase in take-up was decisive for take-up to equal 2015’s total, mitigating an otherwise poor performance in the second half of the year.  On the other hand, prime rents have stayed high, in Lisbon, with vacancy rate prolonging the downwards trajectory.
