US industrial to continue to outshine other property sectors

Following a stellar 2021, where returns were 41.3%, US industrial real estate total returns are expected to moderate over the near term. Growing geopolitical uncertainty, higher inflation and quantitative tightening have led us to lower our near-term forecast. That said, industrial sector returns are still expected to outpace all other real estate sectors – both in the US and across all REES economies – and other asset classes. Propelled by continued capital value growth, returns will average nearly 12% over the forecast horizon.

Downside risks to our near-term outlook for global real estate are mounting, as the global economic outlook has continued to deteriorate over the past three months. Under our baseline scenario, global all-property total returns are expected to average 5.2% pa over 2022-2024, 2.2ppts below our June forecast. However, if inflation were to become embedded, as is the case in our high inflation regime scenario, this would knock returns to 2.1% pa.
