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.
