Market Overview

The Asia-Pacific co-working office spaces market is expected to register a CAGR of more than 5.5% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The COVID-19 pandemic had accelerated the growth of co-working spaces in the Asia-Pacific region, as traditional workspaces faced challenges during the crisis. Many enterprises moved toward co-working spaces due to the affordable prices and flexibility in working space. The co-working spaces also ensure a safe working environment.

The sector is driven by increasing demand from freelancers, small and medium-scale enterprises (SMEs), and start-ups. As the sector provides top facilities at affordable prices, large-scale enterprises also adopted co-working spaces. Also, the increasing number of start-ups with a high rate of investment flows is resulting in robust growth of the sector. Increasing digital nomads in countries like Indonesia and Thailand are also boosting the co-working spaces sector.

In 2021, Asia-Pacific led the co-working spaces market compared with other regions. Melbourne, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Mumbai are some of the major cities experiencing growth in flexible and co-working office centers.

China and Japan Witnessing Significant Growth in the Sector

The co-working sector is experiencing significant growth in China and Japan, which is supported by the start-up boom and demand for greater flexibility among employees and companies. Co-working spaces are a cost-effective alternative to traditional offices. Most mainland Chinese landlords are likely to enter Hong Kong’s flexible working space, which is traditionally dominated by local and international investors, as it offers a low-risk entry point to the broader office market.

However, most freelancers, start-ups, and small and medium-scale enterprises (SMEs) are adopting co-working spaces in Japan. These spaces provide top features and facilities such as fast internet services, 24/7 access to office space, providing meeting rooms, and furnished and unfurnished spaces. In December 2021, the highest number of co-working spaces in Japan was recorded in the 23 wards of Tokyo, at 560, followed by Osaka City with 132 office spaces.

In 2021, more than 20% of the tenants of co-working spaces in China were from the computer network industry, as co-working spaces attract young and budding companies. Most of the spaces are occupied by internet, digital services, and media industries since entry barriers are very low for such industries.
