The considerable long-term potential of Russia commercial real estate sector is being undermined by the current economic and geopolitical headwinds facing the country. Falling foreign investment combined with an increasingly cautious private sector are leading rental costs to stagnate across the market, with limited supply providing an important buffer against a contraction in rates.

A slowing economy and export market are among the major challenges facing Russia's commercial real estate sector as we move into 2015. Over recent years, the market has enjoyed a sustained period of growth, driven by rising income levels and private spending and increased foreign demand an investment. Rental rates, particularly those in the retail and industrial segments, have risen to match those of Western Europe. The market's potential is reflected in BMI's Real Estate Risk/Rewards Index with Russia positioned sixth out of 12 countries in the Central and Eastern European region. It scores 63.6 out of 100, boosted by a particularly high score for industry rewards, at 87.5 out of 100.

However, growth has stagnated over 2014 as worsening relations with Ukraine and subsequently the European Union led to a drop-off in both domestic and foreign demand. A slow-down in GDP (growth estimated at 0.5% in 2014 in real terms), rising inflation and a depreciating rouble are just some of the factors to have filtered through into market sentiment, with overall investment in commercial real estate reported to have fallen by 59% year-on-year (y-o-y) during H114. Foreign investment has been particularly impacted as the market share of international investors is reported to have fallen from about 25-30% of overall transactions to 10-15%.
