Cushman & Wakefield Industrial Research MarketNote: Holiday Shopping Season Off to a Good Start – Strong e-Commerce Sales Bode Well for the Industrial Sector

industrial

KEY TAKEAWAY

Online sales grew 25.2% year-over-year during the four-day Thanksgiving weekend, traditionally the kickoff of the U.S. holiday shopping season, according to data from IBM. On Cyber Monday, shoppers spent more than $3 billion online, making it the biggest online shopping day. According to comScore, shopping by phone, laptop or tablet jumped 21% to $3.11 billion, the sixth year in a row that Cyber Monday has been the top online sales day on record. U.S. online retail sales are projected to reach $334 billion by year-end and anticipated to total $480 billion by 2019. In the third quarter, online sales accounted for 7.4% of all retail sales in the nation, but that is projected to increase to about 15% during the holidays.

Cushman & Wakefield Industrial Research MarketNote: Robotics and the Changing Distribution Landscape

ind

KEY TAKEAWAY

Robotics use in both manufacturing and logistics is on the rise. With the U.S. automobile assembly industry leading in the use of robotics, automation has been key to onshoring in manufacturing. In the first quarter of 2015, the sale of industrial robotics for automobile components increased by 66% compared with the previous year. The use of robotics in the logistics and distribution industry is increasing, but there are obstacles to more expansive implementation, including, for example, the diverse picks inherent to e-commerce orders, a wide range of product dimensions in the “endless aisle,” and the long break-even period to recoup robotics investments.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Port of Houston – The Port that Built the City

New Picture

KEY TAKE AWAY

Port of Houston is one of the busiest ports in the world, moving more than 200 million tons of cargo each year through southeast Texas. In containerized traffic volume based in total TEUs, the port ranked 8th in 2014 among the 10 ports in the U.S., ranks first in U.S. foreign port tonnage and is the largest port along the Gulf Coast with a 67% share of all container traffic. The completion of the Panama Canal will expedite new opportunities for U.S. trade along the Gulf Coast ports, which will likely see greater export opportunities. As a result, traffic through the Port of Houston is expected to grow 10-15% during the next few years.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Major Infrastructure Investment Will Position Mexican Ports for Future Growth

New Picture (14)

KEY TAKEAWAY

Mexico’s growing importance in the continental supply chain is now being recognized by North American transportation groups. Collectively, Mexican ports led the North American container trade in 2014 with 3.5% year-over-year growth, followed by U.S. ports, with 2.6% growth, and Canadian ports, up 1.6%. Mexican ports led the growth in import volume, with a 9.2% year-over-year increase, outperforming overall North American inbound growth of 6.4%. In the past two decades, commercial cargo in Mexico has grown twice as fast as the nation’s GDP. Mexico’s surge into automobile and parts manufacturing is clearly increasing in pace. In 2014, light vehicle manufacturing in Mexico reached a record high with three million vehicles produced and the country ranked ast the seventh largest producer of light vehicles in 2014. As Mexico’s rising middle class demands more imports and the country rises as a regional manufacturing powerhouse, the Mexican government is pumping US$5 billion into its network of ports to keep pace with growth.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Cold Storage Industry has Experienced Continuous Growth in Overall Capacity

ind

KEY TAKEAWAY

Growth in the cold storage industry largely depends on household income and consumer spending. With both on the upswing since the end of the recession, growth in U.S. cold storage capacity has increased by an annual average rate of 9.3% since 2008. The cold storage industry is a very specific niche within the warehouse and distribution sector, playing a key role in the food and pharmaceutical sectors. These buildings are expensive to finance, purchase, and operate. The North American inventory is controlled by only a handful of owners – nearly 50% is controlled by just five players. A majority of these assets rarely trade in part because a significant percentage of the inventory is outdated and have limited appeal to users and investors who seek modern facilities with highly specialized improvements.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: With New Construction Demand, Where do the Older Buildings Stand?

New Picture

KEY TAKEAWAY

Across the United States, tenants are demanding quality industrial space t keep up with new technological advances and logistical processes. Floor plates are getting larger and ceiling heights are getting higher, all to meet the new tenant expectations. As new speculative and build-to-suit construction on warehouse/distribution facilities continues to grow, have the older building been cast aside? In some surprising ways, a review of the current industrial inventory tells a far more complex story.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Geographic Changes in North American Automotive Industry

New Picture

KEY TAKEAWAY

While the Great Lakes region will continue to be the leading location for the automotive industry, companies are clearly expanding their horizons (and U.S. site selection) well beyond the traditional upper Midwest corridor and finding ample opportunity throughout the South and Southeast. For decades, Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana have dominated the automotive industry within the U.S., accounting for half the automotive jobs in 1980. While still accounting for the bulk of the automotive sector jobs in 2014 (40%), there has been a slow but inexorable shift toward southern states and Mexico that has taken place during the past several decades.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Despite Increase in Spec Development, Demand for BTS Remains Strong

industrial

KEY TAKEAWAY

Although speculative development is reaching pre-recession highs in many U.S. markets, large occupiers continue to prefer the build-to-suite (BTS) route. In 2013-2014, there were 16 BTS transactions over 1 million square feet. Some of the reasons for this preference include the desire for some occupiers to own their own buildings and developers’ unwillingness to sell and also, a greater freedom of customization only available in buildings they own. Because of these reasons, developers are making many changes to the way they build speculative distribution centers in hopes of attracting users that would otherwise pursue a build-to-suite approach.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: E-Commerce Boom Driving Big-Box Industrial Demand & 3PL Growth

KEY TAKEAWAY

indus

E-commerce continues to grow – total U.S. e-commerce sales for 2014 were estimated at $304.9 billion, an increase of 15.4% from 2013. Retail giants have long been expanding their omni-channel retailing. As online retail sales in the U.S. have been on the rise for the past 15 years, online retailers have opened more and in many cases, larger distribution and fullfillment centers around the country. In terms of square feet occupied, e-commerce related tenants have seen their footprints grow at a brisk rate in recent years.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Who Will Win the Global E-Commerce War?

indresearch

KEY TAKEAWAY

For a company that accounted for 80% of online commerce in China and achieved $370 billion in China retail GMV* (gross merchandise volume) in 2014, Alibaba has long hoped to expand its empire into the United States and is banking on its growth in China to compete with Amazon and eBay Inc. internationally. Focusing on expansion into the U.S. market, the Chinese e-commerce company launched its first direct-to-consumer online shop, called 11 Main, looking to take on Amazon.com and eBay on their home turf. However, in its current form, 11 Main is no match for America’s current online retail kingpins.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Major Shift in Container Traffic from West to East and Gulf coast Ports

industrial_fact

KEY TAKEAWAY

Retailers and other importers began to divert shipments to ports in Canada and on the East Coast in anticipation of the July 1, 2014 expiration of the ILWU contract. The labor showdown, which exacerbated U.S. West Coast port congestion, helped pull down container volumes at West Coast ports which plummeted 24% in the first two months of 2015 compared to 2014. The significant drop in volume was distributed all along the west coast, although the percentage decline in container volume was greater in the California ports. The total container volume in Los Angeles-Long Beach was down 18.2% year-over-year in the first two months of 2015 and Oakland’s volume declined 31.6% in the same period. Container volumes through the ports of Seattle-Tacoma continued to struggle, dipping 9.3%. Meanwhile, some East Coast ports are reporting double-digit increases, with Charleston reporting an annual increase of 17.9% through February.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Top Industrial Markets Continue to Post Strong Growth

New Picture

KEY TAKEAWAY

The overall vacancy rate for the U.S. industrial sector declined to 6.8% in the fourth quarter of 2014, the lowest national industrial vacancy experienced since 2001. National leasing activity climbed to its highest point since 2005 with 340 million square feet of new activity in 2014, and overall absorption reached a all-time high with 159.1 msf of positive absorption. New construction completions totaled 104.7 msf, the highest level of new construction to deliver since 2008. While the recovery of the U.S. industrial sector since the economic recession appears to be fairly balanced, the top 10 core industrial markets have been leading the way, posting strong numbers in 2014.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Industrial Tenants Take Advantage of State Tax Incentives in Top Markets

industrial

KEY TAKEAWAY

With approximately $610 million USD in state tax incentives among states with the top industrial markets, it is no surprise that 250.7 million square feet of industrial space were leased in California, Illinois, Texas, Georgia and New Jersey in 2014. Illinois alone awarded $1.5 billion in Capital Expenditure or “CAPEX” incentives to companies. These incentives are used by companies to acquire fixed assets such as equipment, property or industrial buildings or to add to the value to assets with a useful life extending beyond the taxable year. Strong incentives helped these five states attract industrial tenants, who were able to create 9,888 jobs in 2014.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: North American Ports Contend with Mega Container Vessels

ind

KEY TAKEAWAY:
Today’s container ship is the linchpin of cargo transportation with 90 percent of international trade carried by sea. According to Sea-Land Services, Inc, to and from the United States, the yearly waterborne foreign trade amounts to over one billion tons, a value of $625 billion. To keep up with the demand from foreign trade, container ships are becoming larger and more cost effective, driving ports in the U.S. and around the globe into a constant struggle to keep up with the massive bulk of these new modern carriers.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Ship-From-Store Distribution Model Increasingly Being Utilized by Brick & Mortar Retailers

2industnote

KEY TAKEAWAY

Traditional “bricks & mortar” retailers continue to respond to competition from online retailers through a wide array of strategies, including, of course, their own online ordering and fulfillment offerings, but increasingly finding ways to leverage their physical retail stores for online order fulfillment. The ship-from-store (SFS) distribution strategy allows ‘traditional’ retailers to fulfill e-commerce orders from local retail stores instead of their warehouses and distribution centers.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Demand for U.S. Intermodal Facilities Increases

2infact

KEY TAKEAWAY

The Association of American Railroads (AAR) has reported a 4.5 percent increase in total combined traffic for the first 40 weeks of 2014 when compared to the same period in 2013, with a total volume of 21,976,509 carloads and intermodal units, driven by coal (39.5%) and chemicals and allied products (10.0%). Additionally, a total of 59.6 million square feet (msf) have been leased year-to-date in rail-served properties across the country, on pace to meet the five-year average for leasing activity in rail-served parks of 70.3 msf. We expect these numbers to rise in coming years due to increased demand for rail-served facilities.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: How are State Sales Taxes Affecting Site-Selection for E-Commerce Fulfillment Centers?

2New Picture

KEY TAKEAWAY

In the early age of e-commerce, the concept of sales tax nexus posed interesting considerations and questions for online sales distribution center site selection. This has also fueled much debate in the retail sector, as traditional bricks and mortar retailers raised concerns that e-commerce companies held an unfair advantage in their ability to sell goods to some customers without charging state sales tax, depending on where the seller had located their DC.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Spec Construction is Back, but Build-to-Suit Holds its Own

Spec Construction Industrial 2

KEY TAKEAWAY

Traditionally, build-to-suit (BTS) construction has made up a smaller share of total industrial deliveries – in the five years prior to 2007, the percent of BTS was about 34% on average. But from 2010 to 2012, because very few developers risked speculative projects, BTS projects comprised the majority of deliveries, reaching a peak in 2011 at 85% of all new construction. Although spec construction has returned, changing dynamics of the economy and unique demands users have for specialized facilities have sustained BTS construction.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Oil or Natural Gas…Is the Landscape Gradually Changing for the Trucking Industry?

indfact

KEY TAKEAWAY

In the last four years, the natural gas shale drilling boom has produced a glut of inexpensive fuel, leading producers to argue that the commercial transportation industry should shift from its dependence on imported oil to domestically produced natural gas. While the near-term costs and infrastructure challenges are impediments to natural gas adoption, the long-term benefits to the transportation industry may make it a reality.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: U.S. Unemployment and Labor Challenges for the Industrial Sector

KEY TAKEAWAY: U.S. Unemployment and Labor Challenges for the Industrial Sector

The U.S. economy is slowly improving. The jobless rate in many metropolitan areas has fallen below the 5.2% to 5.6% level that the Federal Reserve regards as full employment nationally. Industrial sectors are leading the way in many of these markets, generating a large share of new jobs the past several quarters. While the job creation is good news, several workforce and demographic trends may threaten the health of the industrial labor pool long term.

C&W Industrial Fact: Continued Growth in the Industrial Sector: Vacancy and Spec Construction Back to Pre-recession Levels

2ind

KEY TAKEAWAY

The U. S. economy appears to have finally transitioned to a period of stronger growth that will likely be sustained over the next 12 to 18 months. Job creation was much stronger than expected and the economy added 288,000 jobs in June. U.S. factory output rose for the sixth consecutive month in July and over the past 12 months, manufacturing has risen 4.9%. Similar to the recent positive trends in the broader economy, the U.S. industrial sector also accelerated in the second quarter. Net demand remained strong and is on track to surpass last year’s total, with 95.7 msf of occupancy gains at mid-year. The Midwest region led the way with 22.7 msf of occupancy gains, followed by the West region with 20.9 msf.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Foreign Investment in Mexico Reaches Record High; Central States Lead Industrial Surge in Mexico

KEY TAKEAWAY:

Foreign direct investment in Mexico reached a record high in 2013 with $35.2 billion being invested in the country. The amount is 178% higher than the $12.7 billion recorded in 2012. Mexico is having its largest economic change in the last 20 years. The successful reforms agenda will open up Mexican industry to a level never seen before and boost the Mexican economy. This is attracting many big industrial investments that will increasingly take advantage of lower logistics costs driven by the energy and telecomm reforms, further increasing the high quality and very cost effective labor market they currently enjoy.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Countdown to the Opening of The Panama Canal Expansion

The expansion of The Panama Canal is due for completion in early 2016, allowing the passage of much larger “Post-Panamax” ships and essentially doubling the volume of cargo that can be moved through the Canal. These larger ships will allow cost savings for shipping, but will place greater demands on ports on the U.S. Atlantic and Gulf Coasts. Terminal facilities and channel depths, as well as other infrastructure improvements, have been on the agenda for many of these ports, with ports from New Jersey to Brownsville, TX preparing to compete for increased volume and changing trade patterns brought by the Canal’s expansion.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Will the Declining Canadian Dollar Spur Manufacturing Growth in Canada?

The declining value of the Canadian dollar could mean better days ahead for Canada’s manufacturing sector. Canadian manufacturers have historically benefited from a weaker Canadian dollar, allowing them to be more competitive internationally. With roughly 75% of Canada’s total exports going to the United States, increased demand from a strengthening U.S. economy could not come at a better time. The globalization of manufacturing has created fierce competition and many manufacturing operations have closed shop in Canada, only to relocate to the U.S. or Mexico where unions are weaker and wages relatively low.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Manufacturing Sector’s Comeback – Slow but Steady Growth

After the steep decline in output during the Great Recession, the U.S. manufacturing sector has been slowly recovering. The U.S. employment and real estate fundamentals in the manufacturing sector improved over the past three y ears as companies moved to re-shore and on-shore activities from emerging markets. The shift has led to a boost in manufacturing employment and a return to positive gains in absorption levels.

C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: The Big Picture – Bigger DCs and More of Them

Key Takeaway:

The average footprint of warehouse & distribution buildings has been steadily increasing. National retail tenants continue to re-evaluate their warehousing needs in response to the rapid growth of E-Commerce. The national average square footage of warehouse & distribution buildings constructed since 2000 is more than double the size of the inventory built prior to 2000. Since 2007, that average footprint increased even more by 27%.

Our market analysts note that demand for industrial real estate is rising, but modest economic growth continues to impact the sector nationally.

The deepening of the European economic slump, the potential so-called “fiscal cliff” and the risk of a hard landing for China’s economy have added greater uncertainty for U.S. economic prospects. It appears that a full economic recovery may be years off; job growth has been anemic and unemployment has been hovering stubbornly above 8% since February 2009.
