Logistics and Real Estate 2020

Logistics and Real Estate 2020

In contrast to retail or hotel properties, logistics properties are among the winners of the crisis in the Corona pandemic. The systemic relevance of logistics became apparent during the crisis and the demand for logistics and storage space received an additional boost from the increasing market share of online trade. Investments in German logistics, commercial and industrial properties had already reached a peak in 2019.

The total amount of newly completed pure logistics space also reached a new record level, and the trend continues to rise; the demand for new space up to 2030 will amount to 6.5 to 7 million square metres annually and will continue to exceed the supply considerably. Purchase prices have risen in recent years and the returns on logistics properties have fallen accordingly.

These are the main findings of the new study "Logistics and Real Estate 2020", which bulwiengesa has published for the sixth time in a row in partnership with Berlin Hyp AG, BREMER AG, GARBE Industrial Real Estate GmbH and Savills Immobilien-Beratungs GmbH. "Sustainable and future-proof" is the main topic of this year's edition.
