Given that the Mobile Storage Services industry is reliant on the residential market, with demand dependent on existing home sales and housing starts, revenue has fallen in the five years to 2012. Under such revenue pressure, mergers and acquisition activity increased over the same period. As the housing market and other relevant segments of the economy (such as commercial and retail) improve, so will this industry. Revenue is expected to increase in the five years to 2017.
This industry provides mobile self-storage services mainly to consumers. This industry differs from self-storage operators in that firms in the industry provide customers with door-to-door pick up and delivery service. Additionally, portable storage services, which are not included within this industry, are generally used in the commercial market.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
