According to a IBIS world report recently published online, the storage industry are set to grow by 3.3% in 2017.
A article published on domain.com.au discusses several reasons why people make use of storage facilities. A good reason to store especially for senior citizens is the recent request from the government for them to downscale their current living arrangements in order to make more houses available to the saturated market in Australia. Although this idea was raised before parliament in the 2014-15 budget, it was set aside and have just recently surfaced again.
According to this article, people are flocking to the cities for a variety of reasons and there is just a limited availability on the market.
Senior Citizens are reluctant to downscale due to several reasons, The reason that stands out is that they like almost every one does not want to discard some of the valuables they assembled over the years and unfortunately it will not fit into the smaller apartment. A recent study by the National Seniors Australia has also determined that Senior Citizens are reluctant to downsize due the family home is the strong emotional attachment they have to the house they are living in.
The study further concluded that some Senior Citizens are willing to relocate to smaller houses due to the high cost and lack of physical abilities attached to living on a larger property.

Due to privacy reasons I am not at liberty to discuss individual reasons but I can agree with the reasons mentioned in this article
