Executive summary

The Storage and Warehouse Leasing industry rents out and leases space for self-storage to individuals and businesses. Since self-storage facilities emerged in the 1960s, the industry has been one of the fastest-growing sectors of commercial real estate. Demand for the industry stays relatively consistent since it can benefit from both a very well performing economy as well as a poorly performing economy. For example, as people gain more disposable income, they purchase more things that then need storage. On the other hand, a recession will force businesses to close their doors and people to downsize, creating demand for storage of old inventory or possessions during a move. As a result, industry revenue is projected to increase at an annualized rate of 2.6% to $26.9 billion in the years leading to 2022. This year alone, industry revenue is projected to decrease 1.5% due to falling per capita disposable income.

Reference Wordlist

High barriers to entry mean that new companies struggle to enter an industry, while low barriers mean it is easy for new companies to enter an industry.

Compares the amount of money spent on capital (plant, machinery and equipment) with that spent on labor.
IBISWorld uses the ratio of depreciation to wages as a proxy for capital intensity. High capital intensity is more than $0.333 of capital to $1 of labor; medium is $0.125 to $0.333 of capital to $1 of labor; low is less than $0.125 of capital for every $1 of labor.

The dollar figures in the Key Statistics table, including forecasts, are adjusted for inflation using the current year (i.e. year published) as the base year. This removes the impact of changes in the purchasing power of the dollar, leaving only the "real" growth or decline in industry metrics. The inflation adjustments in IBISWorld’s reports are made using the US Bureau of Economic Analysis’ implicit GDP price deflator.

Spending on industry goods and services within the United States, regardless of their country of origin. It is derived by adding imports to industry revenue, and then subtracting exports.

The number of permanent, part-time, temporary and seasonal employees, working proprietors, partners, managers and executives within the industry.

Colloquial Terminology

A facility designed or operated exclusively for the storage of goods in individual compartments or rooms, none of which exceeds 500 square feet in area.

The amount of storage space occupied as a percentage of total available storage space.

A legal entity that uses pooled investor capital to purchase and manage income property or mortgage loans. To qualify, the entity must distribute at least 90.0% of taxable income.


Industry operators generally have low overhead costs, limited staff, few utilities and low maintenance costs, all of which contribute to substantial profitability (measured as earnings before interest and taxes) of 40.9% in 2022. In the same period, utility costs as a share of revenue decreased, as well as purchases, rent, and depreciation. Though revenue has stayed on a mostly flat line of increase, profit as a share of revenue is projected to fall slightly due to rising wage costs throughout the period. A looming threat for this industry is the Federal Reserve's recent actions they took to combat rising inflation in the US. They have committed to raising the benchmark interest rate, which has the potential to greatly disrupt industry demand, via a spike in the cost of borrowing.
