In the current year, the nationwide logistics market was faced with the challenge of having to follow up on the two record results from the previous year's periods. Even though it was unable to do so, with warehouse and logistics take-up totalling around 4.5 million m² after the first three quarters (-32 % compared to Q1-3 2022), the demand situation can be assessed as somewhat more restrained due to the economic and geopolitical uncertainty factors, but overall still as good (only -12 % compared to the ten-year average). The most important determinants that have had a limiting effect on the overall result in take-up include first and foremost the challenging framework conditions for project developments, the further shortage of space in and outside the major logistics regions and the increasing importance of contract extensions in existing properties. In the course of the tightening of the supply-demand relationship outlined above, rents are also under further upward pressure. However, it is unlikely that this will continue to develop as dynamically as it has in recent years.
