The inflow of imports, most consumer goods, is contributing to increasing demand for storage, logistics and warehousing services in South Africa, and a clear correlation is visible in the trend of wholesale and retail trade sales in comparison to imports.

Real estate consulting firm, JLL SSA, has released its 2016 Investment Review of the South African property market with analysis reporting a R28.8bn increase in investment (from 18,5bn in 2015), and a similar 52.8% increase in gross lettable area (2 million square metres).

JLL research considers the impact of trade trends on the South African industrial property market over the last ten years, as well as the opportunities and challenges in this sector.

The latest research from JLL South Africa shows that the trend in commercial property investment activity in South Africa in the past year has been one of managing risk and avoiding loss in the South African economy, increasing the preference to hold property as opposed to cash reserves.

The JLL South Africa research team has released its Q4 2015 research reports for the Johannesburg retail market, Johannesburg office market, Johannesburg industrial market and Cape Town office market.

The latest research from JLL South Africa examines the impact of Waterfall Business Estate in the broader context of the Johannesburg real estate market, from a rental rates and vacancies perspective, with a focus on the commercial property sector.

To what extent will REITs shares continue to grow with the tapering off of US quantitative easing and the introduction of the European Central Bank’s programme?

The latest research from JLL South Africa shows that commercial property investment activity in South Africa slowed down in 2014, with the overriding contributing factor being the low supply of investment properties.
