Read our latest report for insights into the industrial market, property trends and outlook, as well as expert recommendations for occupiers and investors in Singapore.


Report highlights:

  • In Q1 2022, industrial rents continued their sixth consecutive quarter of growth, rising by 1.0% QOQ, the strongest quarterly growth since Q3 2013. Correspondingly, industrial prices followed the same upward trajectory, rising by 3.1% QOQ, the strongest quarterly growth since Q1 2014.

  • However, overall vacancy rose 0.4 pp due to new completions picking up significantly, leading to the increase in supply exceeding new demand.

  • With the robust supply pipeline, occupiers not in urgent need of space could wait for more options to come to market.

  • Colliers recommends landlords to be more flexible in rental negotiations, while investors or developers could upgrade or redevelop older assets to meet the demand for higher specification industrial space.
