AUSTIN, TX – June 14, 2012 – SpareFoot has released an infographic presenting surprising statistics about the self-storage industry. Having doubled its footprint within 5 years, the niche self-storage segment is the “hidden giant” of the real estate industry.
The increase in self-storage real estate demonstrates the rapid increase in consumer demand, particularly in the United States, which makes up nearly 86% of the global self-storage market.
The infographic also highlights how self-storage is a segmented industry. The data supporting this argument is jarring: As of 2011, 90% of all self-storage companies were owned by small business entrepreneurs. Less than 9% are owned by the four largest publicly traded REITs.
SpareFoot provides web marketing solutions for storage facility owners and operators; the AdNetwork tool helps self-storage businesses modernize their marketing and win new tenants online. SpareFoot AdNetwork listings get more traffic than any comparable directory, featuring software integration and ROI-proving analytics for storage facilities. This fun tech startup is headquartered in Austin, TX. Visit SpareFoot.com to learn more.
