NEW RECORD VOLUME
The logistics investment market closes 2021 with a new record result: the investment volume of €9.9 billion exceeds the previous outstanding result of 2017 by almost 8% and leaves the ten-year average far behind (+66%). Compared with the previous year, this represents an increase of a good 24%. Throughout the year, the market proved to be very lively and defied the ongoing Corona pandemic environment with a very large number of deals. This asset class, which is considered to be crisis-resistant, is attracting more and more investors. Single deals broke through the €6 billion mark for the first time, accounting for the lion's share of the overall result at a good 62%. Portfolios also achieve an above-average volume of €3.7 billion, but do not dominate the result as strongly as in 2017, when they were responsible for two-thirds of investments. Due to a total of almost 300 transactions, the average volume per deal fell from €35 million in the previous year to €34 million.
