    #TechCBRE - Delivering a competitive edge through digital transformation

    Real estate technologies and rapidly shifting customer expectations are revolutionising space.  

    Our Spring campaign #TechCBRE explores the challenges faced by our investor and occupier clients around efficiency, productivity, flexibility, visibility and experience; and demonstrates the strategic advice and product solutions we can bring to solve these challenges and deliver a competitive advantage.

    We also recognise that there is a significant amount of tech disruption which will have a lasting impact on real estate over the next five to ten years. #TechCBRE examines five important tech mega trends: Big Data, AI, IoT/Smart Building, Blockchain and VR, and considers the effects of, and the opportunities provided by, these technologies.  

    #TechCBRE - to find out more

    The focal point of this year’s MIPIM stand will be the #TechCBRE experience wall.

    Made up of two 86 inch touch screens the wall offers a highly immersive, tactile and playful experience where clients will be able to intuitively explore with sensory interactions the best of CBRE’s proptech offering through a specially designed game.

    The game revolves around four environments - operational real estate, office, retail, and industrial - matching client needs with relevant CBRE proptech solutions.

    Clients are invited to choose an environment and journey around a specially designed 3D animated area, collecting icons that reveal CBRE proptech solutions.

    Once collected, and to complete the game, clients will be asked to match needs with products reinforcing the best tech and best advice from CBRE. 

    The wall will be hosted by Louise Porter and Nick Wright with daily demonstrations held at 11:00 and 16:00.

    Latest Research

    Global Real Estate Market Outlook 2019

    Overall, real estate markets are in good shape in 2019:?

    1. Economic growth will pick up throughout 2019 despite uncertainty
    Consumers and businesses remain confident, U.S. interest rates will remain unchanged for the time being, China is stimulating, and growth will improve in Europe, especially if the U.K. leaves the EU with a mutually acceptable deal.
    2. The most disciplined property cycle of recent times
    The surge of new buildings in the industrial, office and multifamily sectors over the last few years is not speculative, but a more controlled rise that matches the increase in demand from a decade of economic growth and expansion.
    3. Technology is redefining office space
    The revolution in office interiors—driven by tech companies seeking to retain talent and maximize creative interaction as well as coworking operators using big data to balance workspace and social space to maximize productivity—is generating buzz around the office sector, stimulating an upsurge in investor interest.

    CBRE’s 2019 Global Real Estate Market Outlook forecasts the performance of office, industrial & logistics, retail, multifamily and alternatives sectors worldwide and the forces driving them.

    United Kingdom Real Estate Market Outlook 2019

    ? A benign but gradually weakening global economic environment, with notable risks around trade and sovereign debt, with UK GDP growth in 2019 of 1.5%, only slightly stronger than 2018.?

    ? Very turbulent UK politics arising from Brexit will continue well into 2019 causing hesitation and delay for businesses, consumers, and property markets. We hold to our ‘base case’ that the withdrawal deal, and a reasonably comprehensive free trade agreement, will eventually be signed. But we place a 40% probability on a ‘no deal’ outcome.

    ? Subdued consumer spending and business investment arising from a weak currency, inflation and Brexit uncertainty. Office-based employment growth will be slightly lower in 2019 than in 2018.

    ? 2018 has illustrated the resilience of the UK property investment market, particularly in the eyes of overseas investors. Investment volumes are likely to remain robust at around £65bn for 2019, delivering total returns of just under 3% per year over the next five years.

    ? Our sectoral picks continue to focus on the so-called ‘beds sectors’ (residential, student accommodation, hotels and healthcare).These sectors either exhibit non-cyclical characteristics or have very significant demand and supply mismatches.

    ? The retail sector will continue to polarise in 2019. We expect another difficult year for certain retail types as cyclical factors move to the fore – though both prime, experience-oriented and convenience retail will continue to exhibit resilience. Industrial and logistics property will outperform again but investors now need to be alert to consumer weakness, a surge in supply, and technological developments.

    Europe Real Estate Market Outlook 2019

    ? Economic growth in Europe expected to remain above trend rate in 2019 and 2020, although recent indicators suggest some stalling of momentum

    ? Expect a strong investment market by historical standards in 2019, but a moderate decline compared to 2018

    ? Positive, but slower, growth in office leasing and greater emphasis on agile workplace strategies

    ? Large experiential retail and local convenience assets the most defensive parts of the retail sector

    ? Further rental growth expected in the most supply-constrained logistics hubs

    ? Growing focus on urban logistics opportunities

    ? Favourable credit conditions and strong demand supporting residential rents and values

    ? Further broadening of investment market into hotels, data centres and alternatives

    ? Favourable credit conditions and strong investor demand supporting rents and values in residential market

    ? More investors pursuing genuinely pan-European and cross-sector alternatives strategies in 2019.

    EMEA Tech Cities

    The technology sector in EMEA is a fast-growing and dynamic group of industries, based around a complex system of locational clusters with diverse characteristics, and which are prominent drivers of many office markets in the region.

    ? CBRE has developed a framework for categorising and ranking technology clusters across the region.We identify four categories of technology cluster based on their scale, extent of technology sector concentration and growth characteristics. This approach reflects the fact that technology clusters are far from uniform in their structure, specialisms, cost base or interdependencies with other sectors.

    ? Within each category, the rankings reflect a wide range of key locational factors such as the age and educational profile of the labour catchment, the contribution of specific activities to technology employment and the rate of local change in sector output.

    ? Since major capital cities and business centres are often viewed as the default locations for the sector, some of the highly-ranked locations include smaller cities that may not be obvious. However, all have features that make them attractive to certain types of technology company.?

    London - The Property Perspective Q4 2018

    An economic and property market overview of London in Q4 2018, featuring office, retail, residential and hotel markets.

    Global city feature: Sydney. Markets outside of the CBD are becoming increasingly attractive to occupiers, with vacancy in the CBD expected to remain low in the upcoming years.

    London borough feature: Bromley-by-Bow. Sitting within the London Plan's Lea Valley Opportunity area, Bromley-by-Bow is one to watch and has attracted several high-profile investors in recent years.

    European Loan Sale Activity 2019 Update

    CBRE’s NPL market update covers our thoughts on the 2018 NPL landscape and what the future holds in 2019 and beyond.

    With what seemed like a slow start, 2018 quickly evolved into a very active year with investors scrambling for capital deployment in increasingly difficult markets.

    Like 2017, big volume trades were witnessed in Spain, Italy and increasingly Greece with steady albeit very granular streams in Portugal and Ireland.

    The traditional core NPL markets of the UK and Netherlands remained relatively quiet.

    For more on the latest NPL market trends in Europe, please see the report.

    Global Investor Intentions Survey 2019

    The 2019 Global Investor Intentions Survey was conducted among CBRE clients between November 2018 and January 2019.

    The survey is a clear reflection of current economic uncertainty and the perceived late stage of the real estate cycle.

    Investors are reducing risk and protecting income streams through diversification.

    Elevated pricing levels and limited availability of assets, especially in Europe, are the main concerns. However interest in I&L and alternative asset classes remains strong.

    See CBRE’s 2019 Global Investor Intentions Survey for more.
