Singapore Residential 1H 2014

Singapore Residential 1H 2014

April 28, 2014

The recent softness of the residential sales market, both new and resale across the island, has prompted some to ask if it is time to buy landed properties. In fact, from our recent encounters with the public, there are more people asking if they should commit to landed properties than there are those looking to sell. This angle of questioning points to the possibility that this segment of the residential market could be harbouring significant pent-up demand. Landed properties have several attributes which make them stand out from other housing types. For one, supply is limited. That is actually a very important consideration to take into account when analysing this segment of the market. Chart 1 shows that over the two periods from 2003 to 2008 and 2008 to 2013, while the cumulative increase in the median and top decile of household income was comfortably in the double-digit range, the supply of landed homes has been less than 4%. For non-landed properties (not shown in the

Taiwan Retail 1H 2014

April 28, 2014

Retail sales posted an average 4.9% annual growth for the three years from 2011 to 2013. However, the gloomy economy outlook resulted in more conservative consumption numbers and retail sales growth slowed to 2.9% in 2013, the lowest in five years. Aside from the economy, another main reason for the slowdown is the emergence of nonstore shopping, which has changed consumption patterns and recorded an over 7% growth rate in the past two years. Retail sales can be classified into five segments, with department store sales representing the largest market share of 27%, followed by convenience stores (26%) and supermarkets (15%). Convenience stores and supermarkets showed strong growth in sales at 3.21% and 4.52% respectively in 2013. Aggressive expansion increased the number of supermarkets by 12% from 2010 to 2012, while convenience store numbers grew by 6% to over 10,000 stores during the same period. The newly opened convenience stores are larger in size than has been typical

Tianjin Office 1H 2014

April 28, 2014

Tianjin, as one of China’s four municipalities, is advantageously located in the Bohai Bay economic rim, which makes it a national hub for the north–south exchange of commodities, with an increasing role as a business centre. Moreover, Tianjin has become one of the most favoured destinations for overseas and domestic investment. Tianjin’s GDP totalled RMB1,437 billion in 2013, up 12.5% year-on-year (YoY), 4 to 5 percentage points (ppts) above the national average, with a GDP compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.5% between 2000 and 2013. Tianjin ranked fifth among mainland cities in terms of GDP growth rate, which has attracted large investment into real estate.

Viet Nam Office 1H 2014

April 28, 2014

The rapid economic growth of the early 2000s was followed by the development and emergence of the office-for-lease markets in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) and Ha Noi from 2006 to 2008. However, the global recession in 2008 and Viet Nam’s struggling macro economy from 2009 to 2012 negatively affected this trend. Given the signs of macro economic recovery in 2013, the office leasing market in HCMC is expected to recover. However, the Ha Noi office market may take longer to turn around, mainly due to large amounts of available stock in some locations, especially in the western area of the city.
