The U.S. industrial sector of commercial real estate has enjoyed robust growth during the past couple of years, thanks to more demand from e-commerce and, to an extent, a slight uptick in manufacturing. According to CBRE’s 2017 forecast for commercial real estate, 2017 should bring more of the same, depending on “the ultimate extent and nature of the new presidential administration’s policies,” according to the Supply Chain Management Review.
The CBRE report points out that, despite politics and global uncertainty, the industrial sector will continue to benefit from both cyclical and structured changes throughout the coming year. Other factors, such as technology’s growing relationship with logistics and continued e-commerce sales, will further fuel industrial property demand by users, while continuing to be a favored vehicle for investors.
