Michal Bílý, head of the 108 AGENCY market research department, commented on the situation on the industrial real estate market: “The turbulent and uncertain period of Q4 2022 to Q1 2023 will mainly affect e-shop operators and smaller local businesses. Like the retail industry as a whole, they have to deal with the confluence of rising costs and declining customer demand. Some of them will probably be forced to leave the market or warehouse premises. Multinational companies with sufficient capital can then take advantage of this situation for possible expansion, giving them greater independence in distant markets, including China. The situation will be reflected in a partial increase in vacant premises.”
