With the UK market expected to surpass a record £1 billion in turnover in 2023 and an additional 2 million square feet of space occupied compared to the prior year, the self-storage industry is continuing to flourish in terms of both capacity and geographical distribution.

Following the industry benefitting from positive impacts of the pandemic, this year has been increasingly reflective of the challenges the market is facing as a result of heightened inflation and growing operational costs. Despite the more challenging economic environment, the sector has continued to outperform many other industries, with companies benefitting from stable occupancy and an increase in revenue per square foot.
