An Overview of the Philippine Economy and Property Markets Outlook

The Philippine economy posted 2018 full-year economic growth of 6.2 percent. Multinational banks, aid agencies, and credit rating firms are forecasting real GDP growth of between 6.0 percent and 6.5 percent in 2019. 

Developers are encouraged to capitalize on the country’s stable macroeconomic environment and to: 

  • Align their projects with the government’s infrastructure push, which we see driving economic growth in the Philippines over the next two to three years; and
  • Strategically acquire land in key areas outside of Manila where economic activities are likely to be fueled by major infrastructure projects.

The office sector outlook remains positive for the rest of 2019. The expected volume of new office spaces that is coming to the market is anticipated to be taken up by strong demand from occupiers in the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), online gaming, and flexible workspace arenas. Pre-leasing commitments on office buildings still in the pipeline are sending rents in an upward course. Overall, there continues to be a vigorous leasing demand that is keeping investor interest in office developments high.

The residential leasing market in 2019 in the National Capital Region continues to enjoy the spillover effect from the strong demand for office spaces from the BPO and online gaming firms. The high-end segment of the residential sector is enjoying a pre-selling rate of almost 100% and demand for luxury developments is seen to remain strong.

The retail sector is expected to remain positive in 2019 alongside the continued expansion of the economy and sound macroeconomic fundamentals. The robust double-digit growth in sales and higher profit margins of retail giants and real estate companies in the past year is a result of the significant increase in consumer spending power following the implementation last year of the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Act.

The government’s thrust to promote the tourism industry is sustaining the hospitality sector’s robust performance in 2019. An additional 4,500 rooms in hotels and serviced apartments will soon be added to the supply this year.  Foreign hotel operators as well as homegrown hotel developers are courting higher hospitality investments into the country. Infrastructure projects to improve accessibility to tourist destinations as well as rehabilitation of favorite vacation spots are ensuring a positive effect on tourism in 2019.
