Cold chain, unlocked: The cold storage opportunity in Asia Pacific

November 29, 2023

Cold storage may still be a specialised segment within the logistics sector, but owners, developers, and investors have been attracted by its strong demand drivers and appealing fundamentals, including stable cash flows, longer lease terms, and the opportunity for portfolio diversification.

Fuelled by strong investor interest, the cold storage sector globally is on track to grow 4.5% annually to exceed 1.1 billion cubic metres by 2030, JLL data shows.

What are the macro and industry demand drivers making cold storage a hot investment pick? How would this translate into opportunities for owners, developers, and investors of cold storage facilities?
