United States Industrial Outlook - Q2 2022

Space remains tight in the market, but forecasts are holding steady for the remaining balance of the year

August 15, 2022

Competition in the industrial market has been robust through the first half of the year. Fundamentals across the board continue to break records as the construction pipeline grows. Much of the heat around tenant movement in the silos is due to the influx of inventories being delivered following the supply chain crisis earlier this year as well as companies expanding inventories to avoid future supply chain shortages. On the construction front, the industrial market is expected to benefit from the additional supply, especially as some markets see sub-one percent vacancies. While non-economic factors, such as the pandemic and war, have sparked uncertainty, the industrial market continues to remain strong and stable.
