Title

The scope of diversification of the warehouse space market in a regional configuration


Abstract

The purpose of the study is an attempt to show the scope of diversity occurring in the warehouse space market in a regional system. The size of the existing warehouse space, the scope of its use and the level of rents were analysed. The basic factors affecting the location of such objects in a given area were also indicated. Poland has the largest warehouse space market among the countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The amount of warehouse space in Poland is increasing every year. In 2014, it amounted to 8.5 million m2 and in the third quarter of 2019, 17.7 million m2. Currently, over 83% of the warehouse space market is concentrated in five main regions. These include the Warsaw region, Central Poland, Upper Silesia, Wrocław and the Poznań region. These centres, having a large population, generate significant demand for goods stored in warehouses. At the same time, locations around Szczecin, Tri-City, Rzeszów and Lublin are becoming the subject of growing interest of many developers and tenants. The increase in their investment potential is influenced by the availability of labour as well as differences in the level of employees' remuneration and the availability of land at attractive prices.
