Commercial real estate activity is one of the key tangible barometers to track the health of the economy of a region/country. The constantly changing landscape, with its cyclical swings, commercial real estate activity is a leading indicator for expected expansionary activities of business entities. Examples of large companies like Apple Inc., buying/leasing commercial space in emerging economies is a sign of the redistribution/expansion of the company’s activities in the future.
Commercial real estate ownership and leasing were previously a mom and pop business before sophisticated/qualified investors started looking at it as a long-term asset class that can provide abnormal/extraordinary returns. Opening up of capital market activity for real estate through investment vehicles, such as REITs, and REOCs in the stock market and innovative products, such as commercial mortgage-backed securities, etc., have been key to the success of the commercial real estate sector. These initiatives have financed commercial real estate construction and management activity to a large extent, over the last 50 years or more.
The market research study on the global commercial real estate market focuses on the market activity within the key subsectors, such as offices, retail, industrial and multifamily, across multiple continents, key countries and cities.
Key countries and cities across the globe are covered in the study, based on the population, city level GDP, business and commercial construction activity, demographics and other factors.
Key Factors Affecting the Commercial Real Estate Market:
Economic Activity/Policy, Exchange Rate, Inflation and Employment Activity
A major factor that affects the value of real estate is the health of the economy. Economic indicators, such as the GDP, employment data, manufacturing activity, inflation, exchange rate fluctuations, interest rates, mortgage rates, etc., are the measuring criteria. When the economy is sluggish, it effects the health of the real estate. However, the cyclicality of the economy can have varying effects on different types of real estate. The revenues/returns in the hospitality sector during economic downtime are more vulnerable than that of office space since office spaces are secured through long-term leases and in other cases through outright purchase. Hotel occupancy cycles are very short and, hence, there is significant loss/lack of return on investments made in the hospitality sector real estate, as compared to the office sector real estate.
Economic activity across the globe is tracked at country and key cities’ level and is considered as the cornerstone of the market research study. This establishes the blueprint for determining the way forward, given the current interrelation between macroeconomics and the global commercial real estate market.
Real estate has been, for the most part, one of the most favored investment options for long-term value retention and its ability to generate returns higher than any other investment classes. Over the past two decades, the development of commercial real estate capital market, in particular- expansion of the markets for equity and debt securities, has transformed the industry. This has provided exceptional capital availability and pricing, reshaping valuation metrics. Thus, heavily influencing the private capital formation and providing investors with a greater selection of investment, hedging and arbitrage opportunities. With shortening business cycles and volatile economic trends, sourcing suitable funds, while ensuring maximum returns, has become a challenging task.
After buyouts, real estate is a sector with the highest private equity funds’ disbursement, annually, for almost the last two decades, as observed through available data.
