Industrial rents up 1.5% in 2Q2022, charting seventh consecutive quarter of growth
The development in industrial value and also rental indices was sustained by producing outcome expansions in electronics and precision engineering, along with durable demand for semiconductors, observes Leonard Tay, head of research study at Knight Frank Singapore.
For factories, multiple-user factories saw the greatest quarterly as well as annual growth in 2Q2022 at 2.1% as well as 3.7% specifically. “This could be credited to the growing demand for high-specification multi-user factories, as inhabitants search for office grade commercial areas near the city edge,” notes Catherine He, head of research, Singapore at Colliers.
Stockrooms charted the strongest performance amongst all the commercial sub-segments, signing up a rental rise of 2.1% q-o-q and also 5.7% y-o-y specifically in 2Q2022. Throughout the quarter, storehouse tenancies increased to 90.9%, up from 90.3% in 1Q2022.
He includes that rising issues associating with food security and access to resources and requirements triggered considerable stockpiling task, which added to stronger need for storehouses. “The reinforcing Singapore bill offered assistance to stockpiling, minimizing acceleration in costs as inflation becomes significantly significant,” he remarks.
However, He notes that long-term need for commercial area will still be driven by tailwinds such as Singapore’s enhancing concentrate on high-value production and biomedical industries. Colliers is predicting commercial leas to increase in between 2% to 4% this year, while industrial rates are projected to grow in between 5% to 7%.
Looking ahead, Tricia Song, CBRE head of research study, Singapore as well as Southeast Asia, notes that commercial pipeline remains “extremely thin”, with multi-factory pipe anticipated to taper down from 2023 while most of storehouse supply up to 2023 is currently fully pre-committed.
Colliers’ He, on the other hand, highlights that new supply will come onstream at a regular total of around 1.2 million sqm each year from today until 2025, including 1.6 million sqm to be completed this year. This outmatches the 0.7 million sqm yearly standard over the past three years, meaning that supply is most likely to reach demand and solidify the speed of rental and price progress, she suggests.
Therefore, the commercial real estate market is expected to benefit from the tight supply. “Barring any sharp downturn in the global market, demand for industrial area in 2022 is expected to be strong and occupancy must be fairly secure,” Song includes.
Industrial rates also rose, growing 1.5% q-o-q in 2Q2022 however easing from the 3.1% q-o-q surge recorded the previous quarter. Meanwhile, commercial tenancy prices inched up from 89.8% in 1Q2022 to 90% in 2Q2022.
Industrial rents expanded 1.5% q-o-q in 2Q2022, up from the 1% q-o-q growth reported the previous quarter, according to data launched by JTC on July 28. This marks the seventh successive quarter of growth as well as the fastest quarterly development since 3Q2013. On a y-o-y basis, rents grew 3.4% throughout the 2nd quarter.
