EMEA – market size and forecast
The rising warehouse rentals and growing pharmaceutical market are the key drivers, which are expected to trigger the growth of the VLM market in EMEA. Warehouse rentals in European countries have been increasing since the last few years. Eastern European countries, such as Russia and Hungary, are the major victims of higher warehouse rentals.
“However, the rising warehouse rentals are a supporting factor for VLM manufacturers.
