The CEE Market Outlook 2016 analyses the results of 2015 in regards to investment, office, retail and industrial for Central and Eastern European countries and presents the forecast for 2016.

Key findings:

- Economic growth is the norm for almost all CEE countries, at a speed above that of Western Europe countries.

- The dominant cyclical factor is consumer spending, which is currently benefiting from a host of positive factors.

- Investment Volumes in CEE should be at minimum similar to those from 2015 (EUR 9.978 billion, except Russia).

- Historical high office demand is registered in almost all CEE countries, driven mostly by IT & outsourcing international occupiers.

- Buyont retail market, on the back of rise in private consumption, leading to tenants turnover increases and interest from investors in retail products.

- Even if industrial demand is reaching historically high numbers (in some cases up 65% compared to 10 year averages), there is limited speculative development.

- Hungary is a country that has grown under the radar for the past 12 – 18 months. With a number of indicators looking very promising – well past the region average –, we make a case for Hungary as the go-to-destination in 2016.
