National Industrial Cap Rate Report

The U.S. industrial average capitalization rate compressed further in Q3 2021 to a historical low of 5.98%—a 32 basis points (bps) decline compared to the previous quarter and 69 bps decline compared to the year earlier Q3.
Among the six U.S. regions tracked by CBRE, the average industrial cap rate remained relatively steady in the Northeast (5.75%),  while the Midwest (6.43%), Mountain (5.49%), Pacific West (4.47%), South Central (6.64%), and Southeast (5.97%) recorded decreases from 7 to 122 bps. The significant decrease in the Midwest should be tempered and likely reflects the increased number of high-quality transactions reported this quarter. Industrial prices continue to increase across all regions with rent growth being the primary driver. 

The U.S. industrial market shows no signs of slowing down with record-high asking rents and in-process development activity, low vacancy levels and 46 consecutive quarters of positive net absorption.
