Research and Forecast Report

Supply chain optimisation has become a critical competitive advantage for many industrial users and operators. The positive effects of investing in the consolidation or reduction of nodes in a supply chain, often result in a significant decline in operating costs, usually ranging from 10 to 30 per cent of the logistics budget.

New Zealand Market Highlights: 

  • Market fundamentals are aligning to provide further uplift in industrial sector conditions.
  • Tightly controlled land ownership and high construction costs in major markets will moderate the development pipeline and keep space availability low, especially for prime spots.
  • Rising rents and firmer yields will continue to drive investor confidence over the next 12 months.
New Zealand’s industrial sector remains in a strong position. Expanding corporates and owner-occupiers are driving tenant demand, and a balanced supply outlook will mean space availability will remain tight in Auckland and Wellington. Christchurch has gone through a recalibration in market conditions, and 2019 is seeing stronger sector fundamentals. Investment conditions look bright across the country.
