Given all the construction it shouldn’t be a surprise, but Dallas-Fort Worth is the top market in the country for both warehouse construction and leasing.

With the pandemic fueling consumer demand for products and services, industrial development has boomed this year in North Texas while many other real estate sectors have floundered.

That’s well ahead of the other leading U.S. industrial markets in Pennsylvania and Southern California.

North Texas has also delivered more new industrial space than any other U.S. metro area – almost 23 million square feet through the first nine months of 2020.

China is investing tens of billions of dollars in new mega refineries even as its fuel demand is expected to peak within five years, raising the risk it will flood the region with cheap exports.

At least four projects with about 1.4 million barrels a day of crude processing capacity, more than all refineries in the UK combined, are under construction. That’s after the country already added one million barrels since the start of 2019. All that capacity will add more petroleum products and plastics just as China National Petroleum Corp sees fuel demand peaking in 2025 as electric vehicles sap consumption.

It also positions the country to be an even bigger exporter of fuel, endangering refinery operations
