Singapore strata industrial transactions up 28% in 2Q2022: Savills
“Transactions in this sector are likely endorsed by local SMEs that obtained ramp-up facilities with modern specifications and also reasonable continuing periods for their own service operations,” states Savills.
Although a stagnation in economic activity in 2H2022 was projected to drag down industrial rents, SMEs’ requirement to stock up determined them to take on even more space rather, hence sustaining rental fees, says Cheong.
In other places in the industrial market, prime organization park month-to-month rents proceeded their higher fad, climbing 0.7% q-o-q in 2Q2022 to reach $5.93 psf. This is based on a basket of company park-zoned rooms kept track of by Savills.

Savills expects leas for multiple-user manufacturing facility areas to raise in between 10% and 12% y-o-y for the entire of 2022.
The report associates the higher fad to the shortage and steady necessity for service parks, particularly in Mapletree Business City, one-north, as well as the Labrador prime industrial areas.

The boost in sales activity was led by purchases of multiple-user manufacturing facility agreements which went up 25.3% q-o-q to 475 deals. Savills claims that most of the deals happened at 2 commercial developments– West Connect Building as well as Mega@Woodlands.
The consultancy states that a residential injection of investment decision into the sector is most likely if the outside economy slows down, as local investors and owners produce demand for prime multiple-industrial areas and also enable greater ability to fit new project orders.
