Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/01/2014 -- We see oversupply in both the office and retail sub-sectors, although these markets will continue to be skewed by high demand, and rental rates, for premium, centrally located space. However, we believe that demand could outstrip supply for industrial real estate.
Economic indicators for Taiwan's trade-dependent economy are picking up, with exports increasing. However, the main risk to our outlook remains the impact of a slowdown in China, with its close links to Taiwan in terms of business, trade and tourism.
Meanwhile, we are beginning to see a correction in residential prices in Taiwan, after a period of boom in that sub-sector. While this will not have a direct impact on commercial real estate, should prices begin to fall more rapidly investors' confidence in the wider market could be dented.

On the plus side, however, we believe that the central bank will continue its accommodative monetary policy. This will have a stabilising influence on the real estate sector.
Demand for office space remains concentrated at the top end of the market, a trend that we see continuing, although the small scale of this demand means that we are not forecasting that this will lead to a significant rise in overall rental prices, and supply will continue to outpace demand in Taipei. Despite our concerns, the retail sector remains buoyed by strongly growing consumer spending and an influx of tourists from China, boosting top-end retail. International retailers continue to want to set up shop in Taiwan, with the boost to demand this implies.
Meanwhile, the industrial sector, in the longer term we are expecting a divergence in rental rates between low grade and premium properties, with demand increasingly centred on the latter and driving down rates for the former as a result of Taiwan's high-tech economy. Again, downside risks stem from China's economic situation.
