Despite years of economic turbulence, the industrial and logistics property sector is proving to be robust – even in the facing of rising and falling inflation, and constantly evolving consumer retail demands, according to a new industry white paper published by property intelligence platform provider Nimbus.
The report was based on analysis carried out on the sales values of all industrial sales registered with the Land Registry between September 2021 and June 2023.
The dance of inflation and e-commerce revolution white paper addresses the shifting industrial and logistics landscape, driven by a transforming retail world. Paul Davis, co-founder at Nimbus, said: “Often seen as humming away in the background, the industrial and logistics property sector powers the all-important supply chains that ensure the manufacture and distribution of goods reach our shelves, doorsteps, and businesses seamlessly and without delay. It’s not just where products are stored and sold, it’s where they are made, sorted, packaged and dispatched. It forms the backbone of modern commerce, acting as both engine and compass.
“However, consumer demand continues to grow, and we’re now in a world where ‘next-day delivery’ is an expectation - forcing supply chains to pivot quickly to meet demand.”
