CBRE - Global and Emerging Logistics Hubs

Over the past 35 years, global trade has increased by nearly 600%, propelling the growth of logistics hubs in virtually every country around the world.

These hubs are connected via hub-and-spoke systems centered around 30 global logistics hubs—including the likes of Los Angeles, Chicago, Hong Kong, Tokyo, London and Paris—that form the backbone of today’s global supply chain.

However, as emerging markets grow and new centers of production materialize, 20 emerging markets are on the verge of becoming global logistics hubs over the next decade, including South Florida, Bajio, Busan, Suzhou, Berlin and Amsterdam.

These locations warrant close attention from the marketplace, as logistics hubs are typically home to large clusters of distribution facilities that are highly sought after by major real estate investors and logistics operators.

CBRE - Europe Watch March 2016

Although the Dutch path towards recovery looks favourable, is could be a winding one. The main cause of concern is the ramifications of a British exit from the EU that could mean that exports to Britain, its second largest trading partner, slow sharply. On the other hand, should ‘Brexit’ be the outcome of the June 23rd UK referendum vote, then a large pool of European and foreign capital is likely to look harder for European placement. If that is the case, the Netherlands will be favourably positioned as one of Europe’s most attractive investment destinations.

CBRE - U.S Early Indicators Q1 2016

The U.S. Early Indicators report is a simple early warning system designed to alert us to changes in economic conditions, as well as property and debt markets. This quarter’s release shows that while real estate fundamentals remain positive, a contracting cap rate spread, stock market volatility and a deceleration in the growth of a number of leading economic variables necessitates a more cautious approach moving forward. Following several years of “fair” pricing, real estate is now “expensive” relative to corporate debt. Total returns for privately owned real estate remain buoyant, while REIT returns, though also positive, have flattened. The Leading Economic Indicators index points to further economic growth but at a less robust pace relative to recent periods.
