Light industrial market take-up has slowed this year totalling 844,200 sqm: transaction volume declined by 13% compared with 2018. This performance that is 7% below the ten-year average is due to fewer transactions: 644 in 2019 vs. 691 in 2018.

The slowdown on the < 10,000 sq m segment is partially compensated by a +56% increase on the 10,000 sq m - 50,000 sq m segment. Although 2018 take-up was high thanks to a major transaction in the South, 2019 also witnessed a number of major transactions: a transaction of more than 43,000 sqm in the north and two transactions of more than 10,000 sqm in the south and west.
