Tapping into a region's growth potential
In a difficult period for Asia property, the industrial sector stands out as an area of relative stability and opportunity. In the first quarter of 2020, even as total regional property investment declined 62% year-on-year to just US$17 billion, activity in the industrial and logistics sector remained robust, with transactions in Singapore doubling year-on-year and healthy demand for logistics facilities and data centres evident in markets from China to Korea and Japan.
While not immune to headwinds such as the COVID-19 pandemic and US-China trade tensions, Asia industrial property will be supported by fundamental demographic, technological and economic trends that position it to weather volatility and deliver value to investors over the long term. This paper examines the rapid and ongoing evolution of industrial and logistics property in the region, and the potential this will unleash for investors seeking to boost the strength and resiliency of their portfolios.
