Industrial Space Demand: What the Latest NAIOP Forecast Tells Us Webinar
Recorded On: 08/27/2020
Although industrial real estate has outperformed other commercial property types this year, thanks in part to rising e-commerce sales, unprecedented economic indicators suggest U.S. industrial space net absorption may decline to negative levels during the next three quarters. What factors contribute to this projected decline, when will it rebound, and what does it mean for industrial real estate sector?
To identify linkages between overall economic activity and the demand for industrial real estate, forecast authors Dr. Hany Guirguis, professor, economics & finance, Manhattan College and Dr. Tim Savage, clinical assistant professor, NYU SPS Schack Institute of Real Estate, will walk us through the numbers, provide an overview of their forecasting process and engage in a live Q&A session with attendees.
