Constraints within the industrial sector are impacting on tenants and purchasers. Tenants searching for new or larger prime space are struggling to find suitable premises to work from while purchasers are struggling to find good stock to buy. This is leading to further decreases in vacancy, increases in rents and yields firming to new record lows.
Developers have upped the ante, but they too are experiencing constraints in terms of land availability, pricing and suitable infrastructure, as well as increasing material and labour costs.
The current outlook suggests more of the same for the next 12 months. Little relief is forecast for new entrants who won’t meet the market’s new pricing levels.
