A second-quarter decline in investment volumes, a reality that should not conceal promising sources of satisfaction for an expected rebound.

Amounts invested in the non-residential real estate market in France 

  • The investment market was down 24% from Q2 2020, with barely €3 billion invested, well below the 10-year average of second quarters with €5.84 billion;
  • Over the entire first half of the year, there was a cumulative decline of nearly 39% compared with 2020, which itself was down compared with the trend of previous years;
  • Over this past quarter, the market was clearly driven by major portfolios diversified in logistics, health, and open-air hospitality. The office segment struggled to mobilise on large transactions, with only two over €100 million, both sold by Icade: MILLENAIRE 1 in the 19th district of Paris and the LOIRE building in Villejuif.
