Industrial real estate is a critical component of the global supply chain, acting as a temporary home for consumer products before they reach their final destination. Industrial real estate is typically generic and versatile; it's an attractive sector due to the low obsolescence, long lease terms, and limited expense risk associated with ownership since the majority of operating expenses are passed through to tenants.
Over the past 30 years, national warehouse occupancies have remained above 89%, one of the strongest occupancy rates among all major real estate sectors. Part of the strong historical occupancy can be attributed to the relatively short construction cycle of 6-9 months, which has sheltered the sector from periods of oversupply.
