Global Market Perspective August 2018

Real Estate Markets on Track for Robust 2018

Global real estate markets have maintained their momentum from the start of the year despite intensifying economic and political risks, with investment and corporate occupier activity at their highest levels for more than a decade in the first half of 2018.  Healthy office demand puts the global leasing market on track for another strong year; leasing volumes are likely to at least match last year's impressive tally, although vacancy is expected to edge higher as the office development cycle peaks.  In the logistics sector, robust absorption is still holding vacancy rates at record lows despite increasing new supply, driving a further acceleration in rental growth.  Investor demand remains robust with growing allocations to real estate and strong appetite for large transactions, with global investment volumes anticipated to remain elevated and equal to 2017 levels.
