Inland Empire Jumps to 15th Largest U.S. Economy

Source – Bob Woods, Senior Vice President, Kidder Mathews – January 28, 2019

The Inland Empire’s economy jumped to 15th in the U.S. thanks to the creation of new jobs, an increasing Gross Domestic Product, and other factors.

According to the nonpartisan 2018 Milken Institute Best-Performing Cities Index, the latest numbers equal a 5-point jump for the San Bernardino-Riverside-Ontario region compared to the previous survey. The institute takes into account how well a U.S. metropolitan area is creating and sustaining jobs, in addition to economic growth. The components surveyed include job, wage and salary, and technology growth. The 12-month period the institute surveyed ended Aug. 20, 2018.

When it came to job growth, the region ranked third overall of 200 metropolitan areas surveyed nationwide. The region’s Gross Domestic Product for the tech sector ranked 131st. However, the ranking underscores that there is plenty of opportunity for the high-paying tech sector.

Inland Empire Industrial

Meanwhile, 2018, according to the latest Kidder Mathews Inland Empire Industrial report, was another excellent year for the Inland Empire industrial market. Asking rents were the highest on record. What’s more, overall demand for industrial space did not wane.

“In fact, not only was net absorption positive for the thirty-eighth consecutivequarter, net absorption for the year set a new record with over 24.6 million square feet (MSF) coming off the market. While nearly 24 million square feet of industrial space has been completed and elivered to the market year to date, an additional 23.7 million square feet of industrial space remains under construction,” according to the report.

The report added that, despite this high level of development activity, “net absorption is on par with occupier demand. Consequently, there are very few concerns about over development. Notwithstanding the potential ill effects of the recently commenced trade wars, with the US economy continuing to grow, unemployment rates at historic lows, and the US consumer continuing to spend, expect very little to no slowdown in the Inland Empire industrial market in 2019.”

Why Invest in the Inland Empire

The Inland Empire is one of the largest and most critical components of the supply-chain infrastructure in the U.S. Just inland from the busy ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, this hub has grown by over 100% since China joined the World Trade Organization in December 2001, increasing trade and port traffic. With over 215 million square feet of space delivered since then, growth in the IE has been unmatched by that of any other market.

Market Overview

The Inland Empire Is One of the Largest & Most Critical Components of Supply Chain Infrasturcture in the U.S.

Just inland from the busy ports of LA and Long Beach, this hub has grown by over 100% since China joined the World Trade Organization in December 2001, increasing trade and port traffic. With over 215 million square feet of space delivered since then, growth in the IE has been unmatched by that of any other market. Although volume remains strong in the ports, containerized imports will likely not increase as quickly as they did in the last cycle. Developers are still building as if the IE will continue to grow exponentially, and so far demand has kept up. However, with more than 20 million square feet of supply under construction as of Q4 2017, a hiccup in demand could drive up vacancies. Investment totals continue to exceed historical averages, but only time will tell how investors feel about the risk of oversupply here.
