2013-03-11 12:33:28 - Fast Market Research recommends "Thailand Real Estate Report Q2 2013" from Business Monitor International, now available
The Thailand Real Estate report examines the Commercial Office, Retail, Industrial and Construction segments in the context of a subdued economy whose commercial real estate market is currently characterised by its reconstruction bent. With a focus on the principal cities of Bangkok, Rayong and Pattaya the report covers the rental market performance in terms of rates and yields over the past 18 months and examines how best to maximise returns in the commercial real estate market, while minimising investment risk and exploring the impact of global economic woes upon the sector. The key potential growth areas driven by increasing activity reconstruction damage caused by the 2011 floods are also explored alongside newly collected data covering rents and yields for the
first six months of 2012. Concerns remain prominent among investors. However, Chinese corporate interest in the Thai real estate sector is coming to the surface. Following a recent business match-making roadshow to China, a number of Chinese firms have shown an interest in international collaboration. Thailand's stock as an investment destination among Chinese firms is rising, and the local Thai real estate sector is one industry which has been highlighted as an area of growing overseas interest. Key Points Reconstruction efforts contributed significantly to a strong rebound from an 8.9% year-on-year (y-o-y) contraction in real GDP growth in Q411 to 0.3% y-o-y growth in Q112. However, we view these as one-off effects that will wear off over the coming months. Moreover, given that we do not see the case for a strong pickup in external demand, we expect real GDP growth to remain subdued at 4.0% for 2012, below average consensus forecasts of 5.1%. Inflationary pressure is expected to continue to wane, and the central bank will very likely begin to tone down its rhetoric on inflationary risks resulting from higher food and fuel prices. We believe that policymakers will need to see either further evidence that the economic recovery is losing momentum (which is our core view) or a greater slowdown in money supply growth before there is another rate cut. Accordingly, we are maintaining our forecast for one 25 basispoint cut by the end of the year.
