The past decade has been primarily positive for commercial real estate. And, according to Cushman & Wakefield, the next decade will bring both interesting opportunities and potential challenges. The company developed an infographic outlining some of the trends, which includes:
- Amenitization becoming more prevalent as the war for talent heats up, and office employees demand more services.
- Continued growth in co-working, as occupiers requires more space flexibility and versatility.
- A tipping point in the industrial sector, with a slowdown in trade flows and consumer spending posing a potential overbuilding risk.
- The 2020 elections, which could have an impact on the political and policy environment, depending on who is elected.
Other potential trends on which to keep an eye are a growth in niche properties (such as cold storage and data centers), and more tech migration into emerging markets. See below for more insights.
