US Industrial Vacancy at Record Lows


percentage downThe growth of e-commerce and a steadily improving economy are driving demand for industrial space and helping push industrial vacancy to record-low levels, particularly near major population centers, according to the 2017 U.S. Industrial Midyear Outlook report from Marcus & Millichap.

“Vacancy rates on a national level have fallen to record lows while rent growth has accelerated to outpace all other commercial real estate property types, lifting performance metrics beyond expectations. While some port and intermodal hub markets will receive significant new supply that could dampen local performance, the e-commerce driven demand for urban last-mile warehouse space has sparked the need for more infill industrial space, particularly in major metropolitan areas,” Senior Vice President Alan Pontius, National Director, Specialty Divisions & John Chang, first vice president|Research Services, wrote in the report.
