Industrial rents up 1.5% in 2Q2022, charting seventh consecutive quarter of growth
Storage facilities charted the strongest performance amongst all the industrial sub-segments, signing up a rental boost of 2.1% q-o-q and also 5.7% y-o-y specifically in 2Q2022. Throughout the quarter, warehouse tenancies boosted to 90.9%, up from 90.3% in 1Q2022.
Industrial rates likewise increased, expanding 1.5% q-o-q in 2Q2022 yet reducing from the 3.1% q-o-q rise recorded the previous quarter. On the other hand, industrial occupancy rates inched up from 89.8% in 1Q2022 to 90% in 2Q2022.
Colliers’ He, on the other hand, highlights that all new supply will come onstream at an average total of around 1.2 million sqm every year from today until 2025, consisting of 1.6 million sqm to be carried out this year. This outmatches the 0.7 million sqm annual standard over the past three years, implying that supply is most likely to reach request and also temper the pace of rental and rate buildup, she opines.
However, He keeps in mind that long-term need for industrial space will certainly still be driven by tailwinds such as Singapore’s boosting concentrate on high-value manufacturing and also biomedical markets. Colliers is predicting commercial rents to expand between 2% to 4% this year, while industrial prices are expected to expand between 5% to 7%.
Therefore, the commercial realty market is assumed to benefit from the tight supply. “Barring any sharp slowdown in the worldwide economy, need for industrialized area in 2022 is anticipated to be strong and also tenancy needs to be relatively steady,” Song adds.

Looking ahead, Tricia Song, CBRE head of research study, Singapore and also Southeast Asia, notes that commercial pipeline continues to be “exceptionally slim”, with multi-factory pipe expected to taper down from 2023 while the majority of storage facility supply up to 2023 is already completely pre-committed.
For manufacturing facilities, multiple-user factories saw the highest possible quarterly and also yearly growth in 2Q2022 at 2.1% as well as 3.7% respectively. “This could be credited to the increasing interest for high-specification multi-user factories, as inhabitants search for workplace grade industrial rooms near the city fringe,” notes Catherine He, head of study, Singapore at Colliers.
The growth in industrial value and also rental indices was supported by making outcome developments in electronics and also accuracy engineering, along with durable demand for semiconductors, notes Leonard Tay, head of research at Knight Frank Singapore.
