Indianapolis industrial market report

Q4 2022

The Indianapolis industrial market through year-end 2022 continued showcasing historic strength and demand, as the market closed out the year with all-time lows in vacancy, and all-time highs in rental rates. This strength will be tested, however, as economic and financial uncertainty and an extremely large currently under construction development pipeline led by speculative projects may present challenges to owners in 2023. The cost of construction and building materials will help to drive down new groundbreakings in 2023, and these costs will continue to provide upward pressure for rents in the overall market.
