The Impact of COVID-19 Supply Chain Disruptions on U.S. Industrial Webinar

Recorded On: 05/05/2020

Join us for an in-depth analysis on the Industrial sector presented by the CoStar Group Advisory Services team. Early signs of supply chain disruptions are evident in global container pricing, which has seen a drop of over 50% since the end of 2019, as tracked by the Baltic Exchange Dry Index.  Substantial pricing changes such as these have not occurred since the Great Recession and typically indicate some type of demand or supply-side shock in the market; the coronavirus is an unprecedented dual-shock event. In this webinar, explore supply chain relationships around the world, the evolution of these linkages post-crisis and the potential impact on the U.S. industrial sector.
