TAG Industrial Watch: June 11, 2022

First, Amazon admits that it has a glut of warehouse space, and now Target announces it has excess inventory. While the industrial market remains at peak performance, the nation’s largest retailers are showing that tides are turning. Business Inventories helped boost Gross Domestic Product (GDP) last year as companies recovering from COVID-19 lockdowns raced to restock their warehouses and shelves. While business inventories (adjusted for prices) have yet to return to their pre-pandemic highs, the effects of inflation threaten to slow inventory growth. Faced with soaring prices on food, energy, and housing, consumers’ budgets are simply running out of room for nonessentials. Overall industrial demand will likely start to wane, but new industrial opportunities in commodity-related assets are emerging.
