Retail real estate industry has been booming in
Asia-pacific region in past decades, especially in
Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong etc. Covering
retail, finance, real estate, city development and
tourism, RRE industry has become a vivid and rapidly
growing sector in each country.
After accession into WTO, China¡¯s retail market has
been gradually opened and lots of global retail giants
begin entering into the market of 1.3 billion consumers
vigorously. The prosperous retail industry has heavily
excited and stimulated RRE development in China.
Over the last five years the growth rates of RRE
investment increased by 20-30 % and the total GFA
was extending rapidly. Chain-stores, department
stores, convenience stores, supermarkets, boutiques
and other RRE types all sprung up and scattered over
downtowns and suburbs.
Currently, strict policy and regulation of real estate
industry, bank credit contraction, financing
approaches shortage and increased land-value will
bring challenges to RRE developer and investor.
Meanwhile, the rise of comprehensive shopping mall
and neighborhood center, retailers¡¯ rural marketing
strategy will also provide opportunities and point out
new direction for RRE development.
