Electric-vehicle manufacturing may rev up already busy industrial market

Some of the most high-profile warehouse — and economic development — deals in the U.S. today are in the electric vehicle space.

Whether it’s Tesla Inc.’s (NASDAQ: TSLA) 4-million-square-foot manufacturing facility in Austin, Texas; Ford Motor Co.’s (NYSE: F) three planned battery factories totaling $11 billion in investment and an upcoming Toyota Motor Corp. (NYSE: TM) U.S. battery-production center, it’s clear the market is having a moment right now.

Although the billion-dollar investments churn the most headlines, there are plenty of smaller, younger players elbowing their way into the space, too. British EV manufacturer Arrival Ltd. is building electric-vehicle “microfactories” in the Charlotte, North Carolina, market, and Newark, California-based Lucid Group Inc. recently kicked off production at its first EV factory in Casa Grande, Arizona.

So what does the growth of electric-vehicle manufacturing in the United States mean for the industrial sector?

Doug Ressler, manager of business intelligence at commercial real estate research firm Yardi Matrix, said the sector remains in an embryonic state but expects it to grow significantly, especially in the next 12 to 18 months. Demand will likely start to stabilize after that, he added.

Automakers in the EV space are planting facilities around the country, but a few geographic areas stand out. Some companies are reinvesting in the Rust Belt while Arizona and Texas, popular state for such projects historically, continue to see a big share of investment. Areas in the Southeast are also benefitting, such as Memphis, Tennessee, where Dearborn, Michigan-based Ford and SK Innovation Co. Ltd. out of South Korea are investing $5.6 billion at 3,600-acre campus to produce Ford’s F-series all-electric trucks.
