Global Market Perspective - Second Quarter 2012

A Measured Recovery 

The world's major commercial real estate markets have been in recovery mode since the crisis of 2008/2009, with 2011 having shown the strongest evidence of an upswing so far. As we move through 2012 nonetheless, first quarter market data suggests a slowing in forward momentum, with investment and leasing volumes down by about one-fifth on a year ago. We believe this is a lagged market response to the escalation of the euro crisis during the second half of 2011 and, as such, it is likely to be a temporary slowdown. Given the more positive outlook for the global economy, the significant weight of capital targeting commercial real estate and the strong pipeline of deals, we fully expect the global real estate markets to resume their steady, measured recovery path during the remainder of 2012. 

India Perspective:

- India's economic growth is expected to ease to just below 7%, a result of weakening exports and investment spending, while the country's lack of progress on structural reform remains a persistent downside.

- Despite RBI initiating cuts in term rates to improve liquidity, the ongoing 'policy paralysis', if continued, will slow monetary easing, possibly stalling any recovery.  High oil prices also remain a dampener for dynamic but oil-intense economies such as China and India most vulnerable. 
- However, most emerging markets continue to perform above average, particularly those with strong domestic corporations (e.g. China) and/or IT-BPO functions (e.g. India and the Philippines)

- Technology occupiers continue to expand in India, albeit at a slower pace. While large IT-ITES corporations are cautious in expanding their offshore centres in India, some traction has been seen from Level II IT-ITES firms.


"The outlook for India's commercial real estate market remains favourably balanced, though we are definitely looking at a more rationalized growth over the mid-term," says Anuj Puri, Chairman & Country Head, Jones Lang LaSalle India. "Two immediate causes for concern are the slowdown in the country's export markets and the continued absence of positive policy reforms which would help increase foreign investments into the sector."

    Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum - :)?
