Following on from the tide of investment materialising in early 2014, almost $7.64billion in industrial sales occurred nationally over the 2015/16 financial year. Sales over the last two years have been more than twice the 10 year average of $3.7billion per annum. Offshore buyers have increased their footprint into the Australian industrial and logistics market. Enticed by the healthy returns and regulatory confidence in Australian assets, the offshore component of sales volume last year increased to 29% from 11% in 2014/15.
In an era of historically low interest rates and yields, the comparatively higher returns offered by Australian industrial and logistics assets continues to lure steady investment volumes. Investors from the Asia-Pacific region accounted for 66% of offshore investment.
