Sydney is a global city, within a diversified state economy. As global capital flows continue to shift toward the Asia Pacific Region, Sydney is considered within the top five destinations for offshore investment into the commercial property sector. Over the next four years alone we forecast the investable universe for the Sydney market across office, industrial and logistics, and retail to grow by 26% - from AUD 369 billion to AUD 464 billion by 2026.

This report explores the fundamental economic forecast data and what it means for Sydney's property sector.

Sydney’s population between 2022 and 2030 is expected to create demand for circa:

  1. AUD 1 trillion

    of discretionary and non-discretionary retail goods.
  2. 2.3 million sqm

    of Industrial and logistics floorspace (56% of the long-run new supply addition).
  3. 450,000 sqm

    of office space across Sydney CBD and North Sydney CBD.
