Resilience in the face of the pandemic

The warehouse and industrial market in Poland in Q1 2020 continues on a course of dynamic development in line with trends observed over recent years. This growth continues despite the Covid-19 pandemic which is significantly hindering the short-term expansion perspective of the majority of Poland’s economy.

• At the end of March 2020 modern stock of warehouse and industrial space reached 19. million sq m, having increased by over 428,100 sq m in Q1 2020.

• The five largest markets (Warsaw – 4.4 m sq m, Upper Silesia – 3,2 m sq m, Central Poland – 3.1 m sq m, Wrocław – 2.2 m sq m and Poznań – 2.1 m sq m) account for 80% of modern warehouse and industrial stock in Poland.
