Bahrain ' s commercial real estate sector is witnessing stagnant growth as a dip in economic output, political instability and an overhanging supply of commercial space com bine to keep rental rates down. T he country has a number of large-scale commercial projects under development, including the flagship Bahrain Bay project.

A dip in economic growth over 2014 saw rental rates stagnate across much of Bahrain's commercial real estate landscape. Falling oil revenues, a contributor to overall GDP, fell as a result of declining crude prices globally, while other sectors, such as manufacturing failed to pick up the slack by showing only moderate growth.

In the office sector the market continued to feel the lingering effects of the global financial crisis, with high vacancy rates and oversupply an ongoing concern, particularly in the capital, Manama. Meanwhile, the country's flagship Bahrain Bay mixed-use development continued to suffer further delays with a number of plots remaining vacant during Q414.

The retail segment arguably holds the most-long term growth potential of the three market segments. Relatively under-developed compared with other markets in the Gulf region, the retail sector is expected to enjoy the benefits of rising levels of disposable income as well as an expanding tourism industry. Growing visitor numbers from neighbouring Saudi Arabia should prove a key factor in increasing demand for retail space in the Kingdom, especially given recently announced plans for the construction of a second road causeway between the two countries.
