“All good things must come to an end,” said nobody in the Industrial sector in 2021. As the US economy continues to modernize and consumer behavior evolves, the Industrial sector has stood as a winner at every step along the way. Heading into 2021, the National Association for Industrial and Office Parks (NAIOP) forecasted that net absorption on the Industrial sector would total 329.5 million square feet for the calendar year — a figure that would have represented a 28% increase over the previous record high. When all was said and done, the Industrial sector posted net absorption totals of 432.5 million square feet, blowing past the previous record by more than 68%. With an eye on the horizon, NAIOP anticipates that fervent demand will continue to outpace new supply leading, with net absorption forecast at a robust 401.4 million square feet.
