Riding the online sales boom

Online sales boomed in 2020, rising by upwards of 70% year-on-year during large parts of the year. But what goes up doesn’t always come down. While growth rates will slow, the continued trends towards online sales can now compound from a much higher base (1).

One sector set to benefit from the switch is industrial property, says Stuart Wilton from Centuria Capital. As warehouses get filled up by online retail trade, the rising tide is lifting all boats. Estimates from the US suggest that every billion dollars of online sales require 85,000m2 of warehouse space. And with online retail expected to grow to 15-20% of total retail by the end of next year, the demand for industrial property has never been higher (2).

In this video, Stuart explains why there’s still plenty of room left to run in this sector.
