The global warehousing and storage industry consists of establishments primarily engaged in operating warehousing and storage facilities for general merchandise, refrigerated goods, and other warehouse products. This industry represents a regulated market characterized by high competitive rivalry with moderate entry barriers. A combination of factors such as the increasing demand for consumable goods from retailers and the penetration of international players impact market dynamics significantly.
As the study indicates, the warehousing and storage market is driven by the growth in macroeconomic fundamentals such as export-import trade, retail industry, and industrial production index. New emerging markets in the Asian and Latin American regions as well as in the developed economies have driven the warehousing and storage industry during the last five years (2006-2011) due to increasing trade activity.
Higher household incomes, favorable credit trends, and industrial production are spurring robust economic growth, driving the warehousing and storage industry.
