Jones Lang LaSalle predicts a strong increase in demand for warehouse property.
In an analytical study by Jones Lang LaSalle, it is reported that the introduction of new formats of trade and the rapid growth of their popularity (primarily electronic commerce) will entail the need for a much larger number of premises than is currently used. According to Jones Lang LaSale, to meet this need in the next five years, it will be necessary to commission about 25 million square meters. m of warehouse space in Europe. This means that the annual growth should be 5 ml sq. m
It should be noted that the increase in the share of Internet commerce from the overall trading process leads to a change in the requirements for warehouse space. Now retailers prefer to use several distribution channels at the same time, and warehouse and other premises in this situation should be suitable for solving all the necessary tasks.
In Russia at the moment, Internet commerce is not so active, but the pace of development here is higher than in European countries. The growth in the Russian e-commerce market is 20-30% per year.
