NAI Global Publishes New Report on Worldwide Macroeconomic and CRE Trends

NAI Global has released its first global report on commercial real estate markets worldwide, including its findings that the professionally managed global real estate investment market increased in value from $9.6 trillion in 2019 to $10.5 trillion in 2020. The total value of the entire real estate market worldwide is estimated to be around $200-$280 trillion. Making it the largest industry in the world.

In addition, the report provides a macro-economic look at the largest economies in the world. Including the U.S., China, Germany and the UK, as well as some of the smaller countries in which NAI Global has representation. Such as Montenegro, Peru, Jamaica and Angola. There is specific information on post-pandemic CRE market conditions in 46 countries on five continents. All covered by NAI Offices by approximately 5,000 professionals. NAI Global’s Market Trends & Facts report was prepared by Infabode. Infabode is a real estate information platform that researched trending content and data to publish the document.

One of most common threads internationally is that the pandemic impacted different sectors of the commercial real estate economy differently. Hospitality and retail suffering the most in this area. Meanwhile, industrial markets expanded in nearly every country that has a substantial industrial base with associated services, such as warehousing and distribution.

Key Findings

  • Goldman Sachs cut its outlook for third and-fourth quarter growth for U.S. GDP citing a slower than expected recovery in the services sector.
  • On an up note, the U.S. commercial market remains relatively solid.
  • Prices are beginning to rise again with pension funds and private-equity firms once again spending record amounts on buildings.


“Given the global disruption caused by the pandemic in virtually every country and economy, our goal with this report was principally to provide a document to the principals and managers of NAI Global offices throughout our platform to help them understand the broader trends that happened in all the markets covered by our firm, and to make their growth and business expansion plans accordingly,” said Jay Olshonsky, CCIM, FRICS, SIOR, CEO & President of NAI Global.
