The Parking Lots and Garages industry has followed a similar narrative to that of the US economy. Following historical lows for employment, demand for air travel, shopping outings, sporting events and concerts, recovery began in 2011. Aside from a small blip in 2012, overall increases in parking rates over the five years to 2016 and improvements in employment figures contributed to the industry's turnaround. In the coming years, employment, domestic trips and vehicle registrations will rise, increasing the need for parking services at airports, entertainment venues and central business districts. However, the industry faces saturation, as more operators compete for slower-growing revenue.
