Investors are turning their attention away from commercial and residential real estate towards industrial properties, Colliers International said in a report on Thursday.

The region’s burgeoning industrial property market is becoming increasingly popular among investors, with stable rental income and premium yields, the report showed.

The monthly Asia Industrial Production Index – an aggregate indicator of overall industrial production volume – grew at a compound annual growth rate of more than 10 percent per annum between 2009 and 2012, the period following the global financial crisis.

Meanwhile, China’s Industrial Production Index outpaced the regional figure, with a growth rate of 12.6 percent per annum, indicating that it is even more resilient to external challenges.
