How has the UK’s real estate market fared in 2022? Despite prominent economic headwinds, the data suggests a more positive story: with several sectors of the market performing strongly – even against a difficult inflationary backdrop.
This report from EG explores transactional data, looking across key markets to understand the driving forces behind deals. It also uses search data – a powerful insight into future activity – to look at how the markets might perform in 2023.
Welcome trends include a sharp rise in deal values for offices and industrial; the advanced manufacturing firms showing geographic flexibility in their search for the best quality industrial space; and the resilient retailers helping defy pessimism on Britain’s high streets.
Meanwhile a deep dive into the build-to-rent sector (which now accounts around £4bn in annual investment) looks at how the sector is expanding geographically, as regions including the North East and the South West emerge as new hotspots and London continues to deliver a rental premium.
Finally, the analysis of EG planning data looks at how sectors compare across each UK region – as well as their respective approval rates. Where are the planning hotspots – and what might the pipeline look like next year?
