Malaysia Real Estate Report Q1 2015

Malaysia Real Estate Report Q1 2015

BMI View: Malaysia's commercial real estate market benefits from the country's location in South EastAsia, as well as the government's welcoming attitude to foreign investment and the developed and fairlytransparent nature of the business environment. The country has a developed real estate investment trust(REIT) market, although there is room for this to expand. Indeed over the medium term we see increasinginterest in Malaysian commercial real estate from international investors, as well as increasing investmentoverseas by Malaysian firms.

Over the short and medium term we have some concerns about the Malaysian economy. Although weforecast a good rate of GDP growth, at 5.8%, in 2014, for the rest of our forecast period, to 2018, we seegrowth slowing to as little as 4.1% a year. Monetary tightening and potential interest rate rises could affectdomestic demand, and with exports equating to more than 90% of GDP, the economy is vulnerable to anydecline in demand from key export destinations. However, in the longer term domestic consumption is setto rise, and as economic links with the rest of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)improve, so too should demand for commercial real estate.
