  1. 1. second HALF 2012 | industrialResearch & Forecast ReportBrisbane industrial Demand Broadens Out As New Stock Levels Struggle After the strong influence that the mining and resource sector had on the Brisbane industrial sales and leasing market during the first half, demand for industrial space has become more broadly based during the second half. The current take up of space currently reflects the diverse nature of the Queensland economy. During the half, demand was sourced from logistics, wholesaling, manufacturing and services businesses as well as mining and resource firms. The take up of spaceAEL Holdings purchased this facility at 55 Blanck (2,000m2 and above) was relatively evenly spread throughout the Brisbane market. Leasing volumesStreet Yatala in July 2012 have however eased since the first half from 220,000m2 to 87,000m2. While this seems well down, there were some substantial pre-commitments in the first half which boosted that result. Notably pre-commitment activity temporarily stalled in the second half. Investment activity for built product worth in excess of $5 million rose during the second half of 2012. While in the six months to March 2012 there were 14 transactions to total over $147 million,Market Indicators Forecast - 6 months during the six months to September 2012, there were 15 transactions that totalled $206 million. Of these, 4 sales were in excess of $20 million. Overall Performance Like the leasing markets, interest for properties was relatively evenly spread across the regions with New Supply four sales occurring in the Australia TradeCoast and Southside and Outer South and three sales in each of the Northside and Outer North and Outer South West industrial precincts.

Although slower than the strong result of 1.4% in Q1 2012, through-the-year GDP growth was a solid 3.7%.

Consumer Prices Edge Up The latest inflation data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) shows that annual headline inflation rose 1.4% in the September quarter 2012, compared with a rise of 0.5% in the June quarter 2012. This led to rise of 2% in through the year inflation to the September quarter 2012, compared with a rise of 1.2% through the year to the June quarter 2012. Inflation remains within the RBA’s target range of 2% to 3%. Interest Rates steady Enough evidence showing that the national economy is growing at around trend without excessive inflationary pressures convinced the RBA Board to keep the official cash rate at 3.25% in November. The Bank pointed out that further effects of actions already taken to ease monetary policy can be expected over time.
