As the attention of the real estate world focuses increasingly on operational real estate (OpRE), our report ‘Bedrock & Boosters’ takes a look at some key (largely demand-side) drivers in the beds sub-sector.
Firstly, we examine the well-documented ‘Bedrock’ demand drivers, such as ageing populations and the associated increased demand for age-specific housing, healthcare etc.
Secondly, we focus in more detail on the less well-documented demand ‘Boosters’. These turbo-charged boosters can come in many forms, from legislation and regulatory macro trends, technological advancement through to micro-trends hidden deep within demographic data.
In an unusual detour from traditional research reports, we also attempt to cover how largely unquantifiable elements may well shape and boost our sectors.
