UK Logistics & Industrial Outlook

The UK Logistics & Industrial National Outlook report analyses quarterly UK industrial and logistics property activity across the UK including demand, market supply and pricing trends with an outlook to future trends in this property sector. 

Q3 Key Findings:

  • Occupier demand fell to 11.6 million sq.ft. during Q3 2022, a decrease of 28% quarter on quarter (QoQ). However, this figure remains c.40% higher than the pre-pandemic Q3 average, and the 2022 YTD figure of 43.9 million also remains significantly above the five-year average.

  • Demand from 3PLs, well-positioned retailers and the manufacturing sector remain elevated, accounting for approximately 67% of take-up YTD. Simultaneously the portion of take-up attributed to e-commerce and the closely-associated post and parcel sector has continued its downward trend.

  • Despite a worsening macro-economic outlook, developers have continued to respond to market undersupply, by commencing the construction of over 5 million sq.ft of space during Q3.

  • Investment volumes reached £2.9bn during the quarter, a fall of 8% QoQ, although YTD volumes remain 25% ahead of the same period last year. This shift can be particularly attributed to a lack of portfolios transacting during the quarter, with total investment volumes expected to slow over the coming months.
