Key findings from our Q1 2021 report indicate that:

- Supply of existing units stood at 31.5m sq ft at the end of the opening quarter of this year, falling marginally from the end of 2020 (33.5 m sq ft), and down 3% on the equivalent period last year.
- The investment market shows little signs of slowing down. With over £3.2bn of industrial assets traded in the opening three months of the year, up 96% on the £1.6bn traded in Q1 2020 and double the ten year average for Q1 activity.
