Part 1 of the logistics series analyses the logistics real estate market in Europe, which has shown dynamic development over the last few years from a niche product to an institutional asset class. Since 2017 it has become responsible for more than 10% of commercial property transaction volume in Europe.

Taking into account the historically unique economic and in particular monetary policy environment, the market is analysed with regard to its fundamental data.

It shows how the main drivers – globalisation, e-commerce and urbanisation – influence the logistics sector and the resulting demand for space, which is particularly relevant for real estate investors.
