Commercial Real Estate industry in Asia is facing a challenge



The commercial real estate industry in Asia is currently facing a challenging situation due to high interest rates and financial market instability.

The commercial real estate industry in Asia is currently facing a challenging situation due to high interest rates and financial market instability. The collapse of several Western banks has led to a negative impact on both commercial real estate markets and real estate investment trusts. In the beginning, Asia-focused trusts received positive news due to China's easing of the Zero Covid-19 policy. This was expected to help capital flows, thereby boosting the commercial real estate market.

Unfortunately, the situation has worsened since the US Federal Reserve continued to implement monetary tightening policy. Market sentiment has also deteriorated due to repeated collapses of banks like SVB in the USA and Credit Suisse in Switzerland, among others. High-interest rates in Asian countries have directly affected the commercial real estate market, making it difficult to come out of the situation.

Commercial Real Estate industry in Asia is facing a challenge

Refinitiv's recent figures show a negative trend, with the value of mergers and acquisitions deals for commercial real estate in the Asia-Pacific region falling sharply, reaching only US$10.3 billion in the first quarter of 2023. Analysts predict that Japan and Singapore will remain the top two destinations in Asia for investors in the commercial real estate sector, though the profitability of commercial properties in Asia is still in question.

Knight Frank's report on office rentals in APAC for the fourth quarter of 2022 shows a decline across the region, with rents in some areas falling more than 2% year-on-year. However, Singapore's central area's rental rates have risen more than 3% in the same period. The agency forecasts that Singapore, Seoul, and Taipei will see increased rents in offices located in central areas, while Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, and Bangkok will experience a decrease in rents.

High-interest rates and financial market instability have put the commercial real estate industry in Asia in a difficult position. However, investors seeking to invest in the sector in the region can look to countries like Japan and Singapore, which remain attractive despite the profitability of commercial properties still in doubt.
