What drives demand for industrial real estate?

Consumption is the main driver of industrial real estate demand, which comes as no surprise since consumption accounts for the majority of all economic activity.

Trade is another key driver of demand. Industrial real estate facilities are key nodes in the global trading system, allowing the convenient and efficient movement of goods through the supply chain to end consumers.

Supply chain reconfiguration. In developing markets, companies are upgrading from smaller, outdated industrial real estate facilities to newer, larger industrial real estate buildings with modern features and upgrades. In all other markets, as the relative attractiveness of manufacturing locations and transit routes shifts, as new consumer markets rise to prominence, and as same-day and next-day delivery become the new normal, companies adjust nodes in their supply chains, driving demand for new industrial real estate buildings in new locations.
