Now into its second decade, our benchmark annual Brisbane Industrial Property study provides market players with an invaluable tool for planning and decision making, be they investors, developers, builders, lenders or government policy makers.
Our study provides a careful analysis of drivers of demand for and supply of industrial space and their implications for the leasing and investment markets. Based on our in-house forecasts of the Australian and Queensland economies, we supply 10 year forecasts of demand for and construction of warehousing and factory space, then use the result as the basis for our forecast of rents, yields, capital values and prospective IRRs for prime and secondary property.
The latest study finds the Brisbane industrial market past its trough. Both the leasing and investment market have started to recover, but demand remains patchy and biased towards businesses servicing the booming resources sector. In the report we answer questions such as when will the economic recovery spread beyond the mining sector? Will demand for industrial space continue to improve and what are the underlying drivers? Will speculative construction make a comeback in the near term? What is the outlook for rents across the prime and secondary sectors? Who will be buying property and will we see another round of firming yields? Will property prices exceed last decade’s boom-time values?
The study is relevant to a wide range of industry participants, providing a valuable tool for developers, land owners, construction companies, investors, fund managers, lenders, policy makers at all levels of government and public sector corporations.
