Industrial Watch: February 15, 2020

“Effects of the prominent Coronavirus are beginning to trickle into commercial real estate. With the virus causing factory shutdowns in China, the U.S. is expected to see much fewer retail container ports. This comes after an existing slowdown due to Lunar New Year shutdowns in the country that contributes about 17 percent of world economic output. The combined long-term effects of the shutdowns and low container volume on supply chains are still unknown. However, if the outbreak is contained quickly, the consequences will be short-lived.” -Adam Abushagur
