The Polish economy is one of the most sustainable within the EU with a positive mid-term outlook. Poland was the only country in the EU to avoid recession over 2008-2010 and has been outpacing EUaverage GDP growth for many years. Nevertheless, the global SARS-CoV-2 pandemic did not miss Poland. In 2020, the GDP dropped by approx. 2.5% in comparison to 2019. However, in 2021 the GDP grew and amounted to approx. 5.7%. For the end of 2022, it is expected to increase to 5.2%.
Poland’s central location, its size, improving transport infrastructure, strong performance during the COVID -19 pandemic as well as, developments in e-commerce are the undisputed fundamentals that stand behind a positive forecast for the warehouse sector in the foreseeable future.
The industrial warehouse market is the fastest growing sector of Polish commercial real estate. It has been fueled by the e-commerce sector and multi-channel sales models implemented by conventional retailers further accelerated by pandemic, which contributed to record demand that amounted to approx. 7.1m m2. Approx. threequarters of concluded transactions were new leases and extensions.
As the speed of delivery is of growing importance, the demand for last-mile logistics, Small Business Units (SBUs) and automation solutions is growing.
There are five key warehouse clusters, as well as 6 emerging ones. The bulk of warehouse space is located within the Warsaw region (located within a 50 km radius from the capital city), followed by the Upper Silesia and Central Poland, Poznan and Lower Silesia regions.
