Singapore strata industrial transactions up 28% in 2Q2022: Savills

Although a stagnation in economic event in 2H2022 was projected to drag down industrial leas, SMEs’ demand to stock up determined them to handle even more space instead, thus sustaining leas, claims Cheong.

The consultancy states that a local injection of investment decision into the field is most likely if the outside economic situation reduces, as local investors as well as proprietors develop need for prime multiple-industrial rooms and permit higher capability to fit new work orders.
“The industrial and logistics market stays among one of the most tough sub-asset courses throughout the real estate market,” states Alan Cheong, executive head of research, Singapore.
The increase in sales activity was led by purchases of multiple-user manufacturing facility agreements which climbed 25.3% q-o-q to 475 bargains. Savills says that the majority of the transactions took place at two industrial developments– West Connect Building and Mega@Woodlands.
In other places in the industrial market, prime service park monthly leas continued their higher trend, increasing 0.7% q-o-q in 2Q2022 to reach $5.93 psf. This is based on a basket of service park-zoned areas monitored by Savills.
