National market analysis of modern large storage, logistics and production units

2014 Market Report on Industrial Properties

(PresseBox) (Munich, ) At Expo Real 2014, TÜV SÜD and IndustrialPort will present the revised second edition of the German Market Report on Industrial Properties (Marktreport Industrieimmobilien). The detailed analysis provides a Germany-wide overview of storage, logistics and production units with modern fit-out quality. Together with the first edition of 2013, which listed properties with functional fit-out standards, the new report forms an up-to-date overall picture of Germany's industrial property market. (Hall C1, Stand C1.322).

"The proximity of industrial properties such as production, storage and logistics facilities to customers is a key consideration in all regions - including rural areas - when it comes to selecting company locations. Yet previous market analyses have focused almost exclusively on major conurbations and industrial centres", notes Peter Salostowitz, Managing Director of IndustrialPort GmbH & Co. KG. The new study provides industrial and commercial companies with an accurate database of Germany's large commercial-unit market down to municipal-district level. It is the first nationwide report of its kind to examine the market situation for modern industrial property.

Aid to making location-based decisions

"We compiled the extensive data and presented them in a clear A1-format map of Germany, to simplify investment decisions concerning new locations", explains Rüdiger Hornung, Managing Director of TÜV SÜD ImmoWert GmbH. The market report analysed over 22 million square metres of modern large commercial-unit space, classified into three main types of use: storage, logistics and production. Evaluation was based on a comparison of significant market data on actual demand with local re-letting rates and land costs.

The information on properties, land values, rents, years of construction and types of unit was drawn from IndustrialPort's extensive database, while the experts from TÜV SÜD ImmoWert GmbH contributed their long-standing experience in assessing and valuing industrial property, a critical factor for the validity of the market report. This collaboration between the two companies ensures that the study provides a realistic picture of the large industrial unit market in Germany and includes only properties that match the high quality standards of the premium sector.

At Expo Real 2014, TÜV SÜD ImmoWert GmbH is represented at the TÜV SÜD stand (Hall C1, Stand C1.322) and is also co-exhibitor at the Hypzert stand (Hall A, Stand A.430).
