产业顾问公司Knight Frank Malaysia展开的调查显示，尽管国内零售空间过剩，但预料零售业今年还是继续成为各界人士在商业产业投资中的首选。 受访的借贷机构、产业顾问、发展商、基金和产业信托经理在调查中指出，他们将继续投资或借贷给零售领域，因为随着商场正强化资产，该领域仍蕴藏商机。 调查结果显示，尽管零售和办公室的前景蒙尘，但这两种产业将继续获得最多关注。Knight Frank Malaysia指出，这主要是因为这些产业的价值比较高。 Knight Frank Malaysia零售和租赁顾问部联合董事Rebecca Phan表示，大马零售业将继续在商用产业中，扮演重要的角色。 但她坦言，零售业在2018年的前景并不亮眼，因为消费者的开销估计不会在短期内反弹。 “尽管零售市场的消费情绪低迷，但该领域会持续吸引投资，因为预料发展商将与有经验的商场管理单位合作，在竞争激烈的环境中提振旗下资产的魅力和竞争力。” Phan也呼吁商场业者不要只把目光放在商场空间的出租率上，因为在目前的零售环境中，高出租率不再等于高收入。 她认为，商场业者应更专注于提升商场的科技和行销方式，比如多投放资源在社交媒体行销、举办活动和工作室等，以提高消费者试用商场租户产品的欲望。 此外，虽然许多商场以餐厅作为吸引消费者到访的策略，但Phan提醒，拥有平衡的产品和餐厅种类，才能够为消费者带来更好的消费经验。 因此她建议，饮食种类的租户占商场的净可出租面积，应该控制在35%以内。 该文章已在2018年3月28日刊登于EdgeProp.
