Key Market Trends

Growth trend in Vietnamese e-commerce and industrial real estate

The commercial real estate market in Vietnam is growing at a CAGR rate of 14.89%. Continuing the momentum from 2018, Vietnam welcomed nearly 13 million foreign visitors in the first nine months of 2019, an increase of 10.8% y-o-y. Apart from the hospitality and hotel industry, Vietnam is now one of the fastest-growing e-commerce markets in Southeast Asia. Amid the COVID pandemic, more and more consumers opted to shop online, raising demand for cold storage warehousing for food and other essential goods. E-commerce needs storage space three times larger than that of traditional logistics activities. As per JLL, Both domestic and foreign investors have targeted healthcare logistics, as they will need more refrigerated warehouses to meet the rising demand for temperature-sensitive products like food, medicine, and, COVID-19 vaccines. In the retail sector, as per CBRE Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh city is expected to have over 200,000 sqm of new retail spaces until 2023, both in CBD and non-CBD areas. Categories such as F&B, health & beauty will continue to expand at retail podiums.

Vietnam’s industrial property market has performed well and is expected to grow. While Samsung Electronics has a massive factory covering 67,088 sq.m. in Ho Chi Minh City, Apple Inc. has plans for further expansions in the country. As Vietnam is set to become the new manufacturing hub in Asia, the industrial property market has outperformed other commercial property sectors. In the first three quarters of 2020, almost 47% of all foreign direct investments (FDI) were allocated to the manufacturing industry.


Workplace real estate continues to grow in Vietnam

In 2020 a work from home experiment took place globally and showed that by leveraging technology, businesses can continue to operate effectively. But for many, the lack of face-to-face interaction has put pressure on teams, and whilst a number of our clients expect to adopt flexible working practices in the future, for the majority, this will include the office remaining the central point for business activities. Co-working spaces are one segment in office real estate that is showing growth in Vietnam.

During the challenging period of the first half of 2021, Toong, one of the first and largest co-working space chains in Vietnam, put new projects into operation. In March 2021, the first Toong station in a strategic cooperation project with Wink Hotels was also officially launched at 75 Nguyen Binh Khiem, District 1. According to Cushman & Wakefield, the flexible Vietnamese office space industry in 2020 occupied approximately 160,000 sq.m of space in A and B grade buildings across the two office hub cities, less than four percent of total A and B grade inventory. In 2020 and 2021, the number of coworking and serviced offices in Vietnam is set to break through that amount.
