Arcapita Eyes Expansion to $2 Billion Logistics Assets
Arcapita Group Holdings is a key player in industrial real estate, currently managing $1 billion in assets, making it one of the leading industrial real estate platforms in the GCC region. The firm has ambitious plans to double its logistics assets under management (AUM) in the GCC, aiming for $2 billion by 2025.
Arcapita embarked on its GCC industrial strategy in 2010, establishing portfolios and funds dedicated to industrial assets. It has since grown its assets under management, acquiring a diverse range of properties tenanted by blue-chip international companies, regional leaders, and local players.
Today, Arcapita’s logistics real estate portfolio spans Saudi Arabia and the UAE, with a combined built-up area exceeding 3.5 million sq ft, housing over 80 tenants across more than 30 properties.
The latest report from Arcapita highlights the surging demand for industrial real estate assets, driven by an estimated 21 percent growth in e-commerce from 2022 to 2027. Strong occupancy levels and year-on-year growth rates in Riyadh, Jeddah, and Dammam underscore the supply-demand mismatch in Saudi’s industrial real estate sector.
In response, investors and developers need to address this heightened demand and the current supply shortage. Saudi Arabia’s “Master Plan for Logistics Centres” aims to transform the logistics ecosystem, fostering growth in the sector and improving international trade networks within the country.
