Cushman & Wakefield provides comprehensive real-time market data and analysis by leveraging our expertise and collaborating with the leaders of our multiple disciplines―Valuation & Advisory, Industrial Capital Markets, Industrial Research and Industrial Operations, among others. For the Spring 2018 edition of the U.S. Industrial Investor Outlook and Trends, we augmented our expertise by interviewing representatives from some of the nation’s most prominent institutional buyers and sellers of industrial assets.
Based on the Spring 2017 results, overall capitalization rates range widely by asset class. Investors remain cautiously optimistic in the near term, since the U.S. industrial market is heavily dependent upon the global economic climate, global geopolitical factors, and access to credit. Seaport cities and major logistics hubs are expected to remain the strongest performers throughout 2018 and beyond.
