At the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) level, the investment flows are down by 22% YoY, with a total value of investment transactions worth about 4.9 billion euro in H1 2021.
Poland remained leader in the region, with investment volumes accounting more than half of the overall CEE6 invested capital in the first semester of the year.
Czech Republic and Hungary, with a 20% share and 10% respectively, followed, as Colliers stated in its CEE Investment Scene H1 2021 report.
The office sector was dominant all over the region in the first semester of 2021 in terms of transactional activity, with a share of 39%% of the total volume of investments.
It is followed by industrial and logistics spaces that are up significantly as investors diversify into this seemingly Covid-proof sector (25%) and away from retail and hospitality sectors (20%).
Furthermore, Colliers consultants estimate that CEE 2021 year-end volumes will accelerate to reach similar levels to 2020, of around 10 billion euro.
