This document revisits the predictions we made in January in our CBRE Asia Pacific Real Estate Market Outlook 2019 and provides a brief assessment of what we got right – and areas where we could have done better!

We gave ourselves an overall score of 75%. Our forecasts for the office, retail and logistics sectors were on the mark, but our expectations for mild yield expansion did not occur. We were also some way off on our forecasts for economic growth, which has been weaker than our original forecast due to the escalation of U.S.-China and Japan-Korea trade conflicts and geopolitical tension in Greater China; and our expectations for interest rates, which have fallen instead of risen.
