FM outsourcing hits 'record levels', says CBRE

30 March 2016

Numbers of companies outsourcing facilities and real estate management have hit record levels across the EMEA region, according to data from CBRE.

Its announcement follows the company's Global Workplace Solutions division receiving record numbers of requests for information (RFI) or requests for proposals (RFP).

The number of enquiries from organisations seeking to outsource all or part of their FM and real estate activities increased by 190% compared with 2012 levels, said CBRE.

Its analysis shows that that the industrial sector was the most active in outsourcing requests, accounting for 23% of RFIs and RFPs in 2015.

The company attributes the increase to industrial organisations seeking to increase efficiencies in the face of slowing manufacturing growth.

It has also noticed that smaller sites are also looking to outsource services.

Further growth in outsourcing of services was additionally noted for the technology sector, accounting for 14% of activity, while financial services and healthcare saw 10% growth levels.

CBRE has also conducted its European Occupier Survey of 120 global organisations showing 54% of respondents outsourced some or part of their property management requirements to specialist providers.

The company states this figure represents 30% growth in just 12 months, showing potential for more growth in the years ahead.
