U.S. Industrial Demand Remains Healthy, but Below Last Year’s Pace

Our latest research report presents the key trends and statistics for the U.S. industrial market. U.S. industrial property fundamentals remain very healthy with record high asking rents and product under construction, however year-to-date overall net absorption is well below last year’s pace. Occupancy gains for the year are 167.4 million square feet, more than 18% lower than the same time a year ago. A variety of factors have contributed to the drop in overall net absorption, including a lack of new inventory in emerging secondary markets and a pick-up in renewals, as occupiers wait to see how trade disputes and a possible economic slowdown impacts retail sales.
