New Market Research Report: Taiwan Real Estate Report Q1 2015

A slowdown in China's economic is current ly slowing growth in Taiwan's commercial real estate sector. However, a recent thawing of relations with China as well as an increasingly liberal investment climate and a more diversified export market point towards a favourable medium -term outlook.

The commercial real estate sector in Taiwan is well developed and is supported by the island's position as a regional trading and financial hub. Taiwan's healthy demographic position and increasing international visitor numbers provide opportunities for retail developers as big multinationals continue to come to take advantage of the country's (relatively) open economy.

The slowing Chinese economy has meant more modest growth for Taiwan's economy over recent quarters as falling export volumes have had a wider impact on domestic demand and investment. An increase in demand for commercial space has been largely concentrated at the top end of the market, with demand for more affordable property lagging behind. Meanwhile, the industrial real estate market has underperformed as exports have not seen significant growth.

Overall, we hold a fairly positive outlook for the commercial real estate sector as new trade links are forged with other South East Asian economies. We see rental rates following a largely stable trajectory over the coming quarters, as both supply and demand continue to balance each other out.
