Industrial Watch: May 30, 2020

“The industrial market continues to change, but outlook appears optimistic. Uncertainties in supply and demand have become a new normal for some companies, with “safety stock” becoming their buffer solution. This extra stock seeks to mitigate risks of stockout by allowing businesses to operate as usual with adequate merchandise levels for consumers. For industrial, this means additional storage space demand, with effects like more expensive land and an increase in distribution facilities located closer to populous markets. Cold storage is also predicted to experience significant demand, the result of so many opting for online grocery shopping and grocery delivery. While nothing is certain, there is a possibility that COVID-19 trends may not just be short-term.”  -Adam Abushagur
