The size of commercial real estate market is USD 13.5 trillion in the current year and is anticipated to register a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period. China and Canada experienced growth in office space absorption, whereas Europe and the US saw declined rate. In addition, Asia-Pacific is leading in retail sales and logistics warehouse absorption in the global market.

  • The COVID-19 pandemic severely affected the commercial real estate sector, as travel restrictions and social distancing involved public mobilization, commercial works, and gathering facilities. The office, retail, and hospitality sectors were the most affected market segments during the pandemic. Furthermore, the global market is recovering as COVID-19 protocols are relaxed, and sales are reaching pre-pandemic levels.
  • The significant commercial real estate market growth is leveraged by urbanization, the commercial sector digitalization, and increasing foreign investments.

Meanwhile, increasing e-commerce spending in many countries is leading and driving the need for more warehouses, fulfillment centers, and growth in the industrial and logistics real estate sector, which is paramount to the industry's future.
  • Some of the critical issues are the growing importance of technological innovation and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) sustainability.

The Retail Sector is Likely to Witness a Significant Growth

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic disruption, the retail real estate sector saw significant growth, leveraged by the digitization of work, the transformation of physical retail, and the shift towards environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations. Moreover, the retail sector faced many challenges from the e-commerce sector and changing customer behavior during the pandemic.

Despite these challenges, the sector stood resilient, as e-commerce sales during the pandemic accounted for only 14% of overall retail sales. Moreover, developers are focusing on different strategies to meet consumer demand and adapt to the changing retail environment. Such as remodeling shopping centers for multiple purposes, customizing tenant mix, and developing new lease models to attract the latest business models. In addition, to meet consumer demand, some retailers are expanding their business through omnichannel strategies, such as click-and-collect, curbside pickup, and ship-from-store, by adopting new technologies.

Furthermore, retail sales increased in the Asia-Pacific region, followed by the US and Europe. Also, retail sales experienced growth in different segments such as in-store retails, grocery stores, apparel, departmental stores, restaurants, and bars.
