Latest Report: Asia Pacific Commercial Property Investment Grows 3% in Q4

China led the investment rebound in Asia Pacific for the second consecutive quarter, with a 50% year-on-year increase in volume to $11.1 billion. Sectors such as logistics and living performed better than others, with logistics experiencing a 5% decrease to $6.5 billion and living seeing a 24% increase to $1.5 billion, particularly in China. Meanwhile, office investments continued to contract, declining by 13% year-on-year to $13.7 billion, amid uncertainties on interest rate movements, re-pricing, and occupancy.

While China was the most active market in the fourth quarter, Singapore experienced the steepest decline in investment volume, falling 29% year-on-year to $1.8 billion. Cross-border investments in Asia Pacific also declined by 64% year-on-year to $3 billion in Q4 2023, with Singapore emerging as the most active cross-border investor, accounting for 36% of quarterly investment volume through large hotel and logistics acquisitions across the region.

Australia and Hong Kong both saw year-on-year improvements in investment volume, with Australia reaching $4.3 billion (up 14%) and Hong Kong reaching $2.1 billion (up 6%). The retail sector's improvement in Australia contributed to higher investment volumes in the fourth quarter, while Hong Kong's performance was bolstered by two significant office acquisitions made for occupation.

On the other hand, Japan recorded a regression in investment volumes, with a 53% year-on-year dip to $4.4 billion, as concerns over the Bank of Japan's cessation of its negative interest rate policy impacted investor interest in office assets. South Korea also experienced a 7% year-on-year dip in investment volume to $4.2 billion, despite a strong domestic capital bias and steady leasing market performance.

The commercial real estate investment landscape in Asia Pacific saw mixed performances across different markets and sectors in Q4 2023. While China led the investment rebound, other markets such as Singapore, Japan, and South Korea faced challenges that impacted investment volumes. The region's overall annual investment also declined, reflecting the varying economic and policy factors influencing investor sentiment and decision-making.
