Industry Overview

In the ever diverse property industry, there are a number of broad trends underway which will continue to shape the property industry over the next decade and beyond.

Key trends include:

  • The impact of technology on the way consumers shop will impact the retail and industrial property sectors;
  • The aging population will see an increase in demand for retirement and aged care developments as well as readily accessible healthcare facilities;
  • The emergence of 'uberfication' and its impact on the temporary accommodation sector via the advent of Airbnb.
  • Similar disruptive technologies have also emerged in the office accommodation market with delivery of collaborative workspaces promising tenants community-based facilities; and
  • Urbanisation and re-gentrification of inner-city precincts has increased demand for apartment living in locations with proximity to public transport, convenience shopping, entertainment and health-focused amenities.
