JLL Supply Chain Activity Index: A Short-Term Prediction of Logistics Property Demand

Property developers and investors who want a deeper insight into the future direction of European logistics property markets will find this new quarterly index valuable; so too will major corporates, the main occupiers of logistics space.

The development and supply of warehouses, which are a key component of corporate supply chains, is often subject to property market vagaries, including demand dynamics. By providing an up-to-date, stronger understanding of market conditions, the Supply Chain Activity Index will allow better-informed developer, investor and occupier decisions.

JLL's Industrial & Logistics is pleased to present its new Supply Chain Activity Index, a composite index of economic and supply chain variables that we have constructed to predict short-term corporate demand for logistics (distribution warehouse) space across Europe.

JLL’s Supply Chain Activity Index on track for a steady year for warehouse take-up, despite uncertainties
  • The Index maintained its steady expansion in Q3, although economic and political uncertainties decelerated growth.
  • The Index’s Q3 growth is on the back of further uplifts in European GDP and trade volumes.
  • Looking ahead, the Index should expand at a slower pace in Q4 and Q1 2017, picking up again in Q2 2017.
  • The Index forecasts that take-up in the final quarter of 2016 will slightly increase on Q3 to around
    4.3 million sq m.
  • Upside potential to occupational demand is still supported by network alignments anchored in the further growth of online retail.
