Report | North America Industrial Outlook - Q4 2010


North American industrial real estate is back on track.  Industrial capital markets have surged in transaction volumes, and portfolio transfers have dramatically increased.  Significant remaining risks include rising fuel prices, trade imbalances, government deficits and high unemployment.

Sales of industrial properties during Q4 2010 were the highest in almost three years.  California markets are the most active.  Dallas and South Florida tripled the national growth rate average, while Chicago was among the most sluggish markets.  Leasing activity remains fragile, propelled by larger deals and consolidation.  Prices should bottom in early 2011, then slowly rise. Construction remains muted, but build-to-suits are increasing and more spec development could follow.


Mexico relies upon the U.S. economy; only Mexico City, Monterrey, Tijuana, Ciudad Juarez and Guadalajra support Mexican-driven markets. Leasing conditions generally favor tenants over landlords except for Monterrey, Ciudad Juarez and Mexico City.  There, automotive industry expansion and consumer market growth have tightened space availability.
