Is a lens dehumidifier necessary?

I'm wondering if people have found a lens storage cabinet with dehumidifier necessary? I have never used one and have been lucky so far to have avoided any issues with fungus, but would definitely like to avoid such issues down the road. I do live in a city with low relative humidity most of the year (Phoenix, AZ - average around 22% to an average high of 50%, but more during days with rain/monsoon). Especially interested to hear from people who live in similar climates. I do travel occasionally to humid climates.
