The five largest self storage companies operating in the industry are: Public Storage, Extra Space Storage, CubeSmart, Sovran Self Storage, U-Haul International. There are approximately 49,940 self storage facilities in the US (as of Q2 2012) Total self storage rental space in the U.S. is 2.3 billion square feet (as of Q4 2011). That figure represents more than 78 square miles of rentable self storage space or an area well more than three times the size of Manhattan Island. These units generated 2011 revenue of $22.45 billion or about twice what Americans spent going to the movies that year. 1 in 10 households in the U.S. currently rent a self storage unit. That has increased from 1 in 17 households in 1995. Source: Self Storage Association - See more at:
