Our latest research report — Q3 2019 Industrial Market Outlook — presents the key trends and statistics for the U.S. industrial market. U.S. industrial property fundamentals remain very healthy with record high asking rents and product under construction, however year-to-date overall net absorption is well below last year’s pace. Occupancy gains for the year are 167.4 million square feet, more than 18% lower than the same time a year ago. A variety of factors have contributed to the drop in overall net absorption, including a lack of new inventory in emerging secondary markets and a pick-up in renewals, as occupiers wait to see how trade disputes and a possible economic slowdown impacts retail sales.
