Germany: Industrial & Logistics Market Report 2020

Download Report
Fueled by ongoing high demand on the German commercial real estate investment market and the low interest rate environment, industrial and logistics assets continued to perform very well in 2019, once again ranking as the third strongest asset class in Germany after office and retail. Investors poured a total of €6.6bn into German industrial and logistics assets over the course year. Although this marks a yoy decrease, the drop can be contributed to the current scarcity of product. Foreign investors again showed their enthusiasm for German logistics assets, generating roughly 60% of annual transaction volume. The largest logistics deal of the year, the Maximus portfolio, involved a foreign investor. Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund (GIC) acquired the 28-asset pan-European portfolio at the end of the year. German investors continued to target their investment at light industrial properties in 2019, with the asset class accounting for about one third of their total transaction volume.
