Storage Units Franchise & Business Opportunities

Storage Unit Industry

General Storage Unit Industry

The storage unit industry covers businesses and establishments that rent out or lease storage space for revenue, providing a secure base for customers to retrieve and drop off their belongings with ease. Storage units can take on a myriad of forms, and can be stationary or mobile. Examples include rooms, compartments, lockers, containers, and outdoor space. The storage unit market is currently valued at a little over $20 billion, and there are over 180,000 operating businesses. Public Storage is a self-storage company that currently dominates the market, owning the largest percentage of market share.

Retail Industry Trends

The landscape of the retail industry has changed dramatically over the past decade, with the decline of brick and mortar establishments coupled with the rise of e-commerce and online shopping. The closure of major department stores has only accelerated this major transformation of the retail industry, which has increased even more with the shutdown brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Operators in this industry will have to revamp their business model in order to attract a steady stream of customers, therefore competing with the convenience of online models.

Storage Unit Industry Trends

This industry has remained relatively stable and resilient in times of economic stagnation, with revenue increasing at an annualized rate of 3% over the past five years. This is due to the fact that storing belongings temporarily is a constant need regardless of market conditions, and homeowners/renters needing storage space offsets even dips in per capita disposable income spending. However, this industry has not been exempt from the effects of the pandemic, as reduced economic activity overall has cut into profits. Nevertheless, businesses within this industry are expected to rebound as the economy begins to recover alongside the strong residential rental market.
