There is good reason to be optimistic about the global real estate market in 2014, as the world economy regains some vigour, business confidence improves and strong corporate balance sheets encourage increasing capital expenditure.

The global leasing markets are less exuberant. While corporate sentiment has improved markedly, companies remain vigilant. Nonetheless, the majority of major leasing markets should be on a more solid footing in 2014.
