PwC & Urban Land Institute Emerging Trends in Real Estate Asia Pacific 2022

2 Dec 2021

An outlook on real estate investment and development trends,
real estate finance and capital markets, property sectors, metropolitan areas, and other real estate issues throughout the Asia Pacific region.


As real estate investors plan their 2022 post-pandemic strategies, the road ahead is fraught with uncertainty. Transactions are rebounding after nearly two years of lockdowns and travel embargoes, but the contours of the investment landscape in the Asia Pacific have been reshaped—in some ways profoundly—by pandemic-induced changes to the way we use real estate.

As the new dynamic unfolds, investors are adapting in a number of ways:

  • Focusing on operations and services
  • Pursuing value-add projects
  • Investing in the theme of decentralisation
  • Buying into the new economy
  • Niche asset classes boost yields
