The CBRE 2019 Europe Real Estate Market Outlook provides insight on the key trends our experts think will affect the European property industry over the next 12 months.

Economic and Political: Economic growth in Europe over the next two years looks much like 2018: above trend, but weaker than 2017 and with downside risks rising

Capital Markets: Abundance of potential buyers and sellers in the market, but limited scope for further turnover growth

Offices: Office markets will see positive but slowing rates of growth in leasing levels in 2019

Retail: Large experiential retail and local convenience assets are the most defensive parts of the sector

Industrial and Logistics: Occupiers and investors will be focused on urban logistics opportunities

Residential: Favourable credit conditions and strong investor demand supporting growth in rents and values in most major markets

Hotels: Hotel development activity rising mostly in the economy and midscale tiers of the market

Alternatives: More investors pursuing genuinely pan-European and cross-sector alternatives strategies in 2019

Data centres: An influx of new occupiers to the data centres market in 2019, particularly Chinese cloud and telco companies

Real Estate Technology: Occupiers and investors taking a more issue-led approach to investing in tech innovation programmes
