CBRE offers an overview of industrial areas and hubs around Bangkok, Eastern Seaboard and Thailand as a whole. We also provide a list of the most popular estates and areas offering warehouses and factories for sale in Thailand.
Samutprakarn province, located in the southeast of Bangkok, is a hub for distribution centers. It also has a number of mostly older industrial estates including warehouses and factories for sale and rent in Thailand. The province benefits from being ideally located close to Bangkok and the main international airport. It also has Bangna-Trad Road and an elevated expressway running through it, which are two of the main routes into Bangkok from the south east and Laem Chabang Deep Seaport.
Due to its location and links to main transport hubs, Samutprakarn has developed into the prime area for logistics and e-commerce distribution in Thailand. This area has a large demand for both land and warehouse rental space, particularly along the Bangna-Trad Road between Km.18-23, which is zoned appropriately for large warehouse development.
There are a limited number of industrial estates and parks on the outskirts of Bangkok, but the most popular locations for distribution centers are to the east of Bangkok along the Bangna Trad highway and to the north of Bangkok in the Wang Noi and Bang Bua Tong districts.
Town planning regulations restrict the development of industrial and warehouse property in most areas of Bangkok. Therefore, manufacturers have their production in industrial estates and parks outside of Bangkok, where many factories for sale in Thailand are located.
Industrial Estates and Parks close to Bangkok include:
Most of Thailand's car manufacturing and petrochemical industries are located in the Eastern Seaboard.
- Bangpoo Industrial Estate
- Bangkradi Industrial Estate
- Lad Krabang Industrial Estate
