The US industrial market continues its wild upward swing after a banner 2020, a year in which it fared better than any other CRE segment. Overall, the country has experienced 43 consecutive quarters of positive industrial absorption, with occupancy gains the third highest on record last year. And while core markets have continued to gain popularity, opportunities for both investors and occupiers are increasingly popping up in secondary emerging regions, according to Colliers.

Austin leads the way in emerging markets, with overall vacancy coming in at 7.3% at the end of last year, down from 8.6% in 2019, and occupancy gains of 2.3 million square feet, led by big leases by FedEx and Amazon. The average industrial asking rate was $10.70 at year’s end. More than five million square feet of industrial space was also underway in the region at year’s end to meet rising e-commerce and manufacturing demand, with the high-profile NorthPark35 and Plum Creek Industrial Center set to deliver in a few years. Colliers experts note that e-commerce continues to pick up traction in Austin and predicts demand will likely outpace supply well into this year.
