20573  IL Research  website

Our latest Industrial and & Logistics sector report includes recent analysis of the UK economy, occupier and capital markets, and our 2021 predictions.


What is clear from our analysis is that despite the unfavourable climate, consumer expectations of immediate deliveries and greater product variety are forcing the rapid development of more efficient logistics networks.

This is keeping availability in check whilst driving rental growth.

Report Key Highlights 

  • Occupational demand will reach a new record level close to, or in excess of, 45m sq ft in a low supply environment and against a backdrop of strong online sales.

  • Rental growth is expected to remain relatively strong in 2021, whilst fierce competition for investment assets indicates that there will be further mild prime yield compression.
  • Despite the unfavourable economic climate, consumer expectations of immediate deliveries and greater product variety are forcing the rapid development of more efficient logistic networks.
