Summary of Real Estate

The North American real estate industry has seen robust growth over the past decade, driven by low interest rates, strong economic fundamentals, and increased investment activity. The US accounts for over 50% of global real estate investment, while Canada also sees significant capital flows into areas like commercial office, multifamily, and industrial assets.

Key trends in North American real estate include the rise of alternative property types like data centers, life sciences facilities, and single-family rentals. There is also increasing adoption of technology from blockchain to Internet-of-Things sensors to optimize building operations. Most investment activity is still concentrated in major gateway cities like New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, and Vancouver, but secondary markets are gaining more interest.

Based on our estimates, we can say that the North American real estate industry is forecasted to be a $2164.93 billion industry in 2029 from $1504.25 billion in 2023 with a CAGR of 6.22 %.

From an investment perspective, private equity real estate funds have record levels of dry powder, while cross-border capital flows continue rising as Asian and European investors partner with local operators.

Accelerating sustainability initiatives around energy efficiency retrofits, renewable energy procurement, water conservation and waste reduction amidst ESG prioritization.

Demand spike for industrial & logistics assets driven by expansion of e-commerce and supply chain infrastructure across North America. Overall— North American real estate remains a core holding for institutional investors given its stability and yield profile.
