Report | United States Industrial Investment Outlook - Q3 2016


After exhibiting two consecutive quarters of investment volume growth in Q3 2016, the year is currently on pace to rank second in overall volume to 2015 since 2008. Third quarter year-over-year investment volumes grew a moderate 2.3 percent, with overall year-to-date volume down 28.9 percent. However, if the five largest industrial transactions (deals over $250.0 mil) from 2015 were excluded, total volumes for the year are only down 3.1 percent over the same period in 2015. The third quarter trended nearer to the 10-year rate of normalcy (36.7 percent of all transactional volume), and a broader trend toward normalcy is expected to accelerate through the end of the year with familiar acquirers like GLP and Blackstone set to close on two +$1.0 billion portfolios. The shift toward building scale through single market-focused and regional portfolio acquisitions has largely benefited investors seeking less competitive yet fundamentally sound non-core markets.​
