€ 10 BILLION EXCEEDED FOR THE FIRST TIME
The logistics investment market was able to end the year where it began in the first quarter: Logistic investments therefore achieve a share of 19 % from the commercial investment market. This puts the asset class in second place for the second time in a row, ahead of retail (17%) and behind of office properties (41%). With this figure, logistics investments, with a turnover share of 19 % of the commercial investment market, can also move ahead of the retail sector (17 %) and behind the office sector (41 %) into second place in the asset class ranking for the second time in a row. Nevertheless, these aggregated numbers do not fully reflect developments in the interest rate environment and the uncertain geopolitical situation, which have changed over the course of the year. Compared to the same periods of the previous year, the increase in investment volume has decreased noticeably from a plus of 133 % in the strong first quarter to a result that is only 3 % higher for the full-year 2022. In terms of the two segments of single (€ 5.4 billion) and portfolio deals (€4.7 billion), there is a balanced ratio of 54 % to 46.%. Portfolio transactions accounted for a larger share (+ 26 %) and individual transactions for a slightly smaller share (- 12 %) of investment activity than in 2021.
