Regional improvements in infrastructure have attracted an increasing number of businesses to set up or relocate to the West Midlands, particularly larger and higher quality employers.

The West Midlands investment market continues to benefit from strong demand, although the volume of transactions has fallen from its 2016 peak to a more normalised level.

The region retains its strong manufacturing sector dominated by the automotive industry, where firms such as Jaguar Land Rover and The London Taxi Company continue to expand.

The most significant industrial and logistics development opportunity in recent years is now available at Peddimore, Birmingham.
