Players in the Industrial and Other Property Operators industry have encountered a moderate strengthening in demand conditions since the late 2000s. Industry revenue has been climbing from a deep trough in 2009-10 due to structural changes in the wholesale and retail markets and improved transport infrastructure. Demand for warehouse space close to transport links has been supported by the strong growth in internet-based retail sales. Major retail chains have adopted the bricks-and-clicks business model, while new entrants have captured some of the retail market by operating with only a warehouse distribution centre and no public shopfront.
This industry consists of operators that lease out industrial and other commercial property (excluding office and retail property).
