Right now, the developed world is on the cusp of a fourth industrial revolution, and it is set to have a more transformative impact on everyday life than the three revolutions before it.
The fourth industrial revolution is about embedding the cyber world into everyday lives and workplaces. The roll-out of 5G is core to this revolution, enabling technologies which can power and transform energy management, transport networks, healthcare and entertainment.
A fundamental change in how we live, work and transact will have a knock-on impact to how industrial real estate is used and valued. This disruption presents both opportunities and challenges for investors – industrial real estate will see some big wins as 5G is rolled out, but not every asset will have the potential for gains.
