Industry experts do not expect market recovery for at least two years, with all sectors severely impacted. Retail and hospitality have proven to be the most vulnerable to the crisis, with office and residential initially more resilient to the market shock

Approved Foreign Direct Investment is a positive indicator emerging from this challenging time, with approved investment in real estate significantly up over the last 12 months. The challenge will now be actualising these investments.

The residential supply pipeline has been pushed out with numerous delays resulting from the outbreak. Prices have already fallen significantly and the publisher expects this trend to continue in the second half.

Office rental prices fell in H1 2020 to their lowest levels in five years. This decline has likely been accelerated due to the COVID-19 impact, as previous forecasts suggested prices would remain consistent in 2020 from 2019.

Previously the success story of Myanmar's real estate sector, the retail sector remains in wait-and-see mode regarding the ongoing social distancing restrictions that are currently hobbling the segment. The publisher expects the segment to bounce back quickly once the crisis passes, buoyed by the strong fundamentals of Myanmar's growing middle class.

The hospitality sector was already in a difficult period when COVID-19 hit. Though tourist arrivals and expenditure in 2019 had given the industry hope of success in 2020, the virus has eliminated this opportunity. Uncertainty will allow for opportunities for those providers who can adapt quickly to the new and changing landscape to capture the new form of traveller that will emerge out of the pandemic.
