Despite ongoing challenges, 2021 saw Asia Pacific generally recover from the pandemic-induced recession.

 

CBRE’s 2022 Asia Pacific Real Estate Market Outlook, which features “Harnessing Growth, Navigating Uncertainty” as a central theme, explores how we expect the recovery in Asia Pacific’s economy and commercial real estate market to play out in 2022, despite sustained pandemic-related headwinds.

 

Our outlook for the region is positive, with steady economic expansion expected throughout the year, led by outsized growth in India and mainland China.

 

We foresee that a rebound in leasing demand will bring an end to the downward rental cycle in the office and retail sectors, with the logistics sector also expected to enjoy another strong year of growth.

 

Strong liquidity will fuel the investment market, underpinning a projected 5% - 10% year-on-year increase in Asia Pacific transaction volume, to what is expected to be a record high.

 

Overall, the outlook is bright for the Asia Pacific real estate market in 2022, with significant growth opportunities across sectors.
