Cushman & Wakefield MarketBeat reports analyse quarterly Netherlands commercial property activity across office, retail and industrial real estate sectors including supply, demand and pricing trends at the market and submarket levels.

The economic growth in the Netherlands is still registering a strong performance, with an increase of 2.7% in 2018. Inflation increased to 1.6%. Export took a share of 40% in the total GDP growth of the country. Construction costs remain high, while labour force in the hotspots of the country is limited. The unemployment rate in the Netherlands is at a record-low figure with 3.8% in 2018.

Office

The office occupier market registered a take-up of 640,000 sq m in the first half of 2019, which is 15% higher than the same period in 2018 and at a record-high level since 2008. Office investment volume registered EUR 1.9 billion during the first half of 2019, a decline of 39% compared to the same period in 2018. This is the direct result of limited office investment opportunities. 

Retail

Consumer confidence is increasing during 2019 and since July once again positive (+2). Despite the growing economy and the increasing private spending, retail streets show a less positive performance. In the first half of 2019 there was EUR 800 million invested in retail property, which represents 10% of the total investment volume. 

Industrial

The take-up of industrial and logistic space registered 2.6 million sq m in the first half year of 2019, which is 32% higher than the same period in 2018. In the half of 2019, the investment volume for the industrial and logistics market registered EUR 1.3 billion, or 16% of the total investment volume.
