Abstract

The industrial and warehouse market is a significant part of a free market economy. Its functioning involves a number of challenges and risks, as it is dependent on a number of global and local factors. In these conditions developers have an important role to play. The aim of the paper is to highlight the activities undertaken by developers in the Polish modern warehouse market and the selected solutions that allow them to meet customer needs. An additional objective is to identify the most important trends that are going to influence the future actions of developers. In order to fulfil the main goal of the paper a review of the literature as well as an analysis of reports and information published by agencies and consultants operating in the real estate market and by developers have been carried out. Among developers operating in the Polish commercial warehouse market, there are both entities of global importance and local, smaller companies. Many of them perform a wide range of functions and they are still taking up new challenges (in technical and organizational terms). This undoubtedly affects the investment attractiveness of the Polish industrial and warehouse market and is a factor influencing its development. Research findings indicate also other warehouse market trends which constitute challenges for warehouse developers.
