Market Overview

Bahrain Co-Working Office Space Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 6% during the forecast period of 2022-2027.

COVID-19 had a significant impact on the Co-Working Spaces Market, including Bahrain. The demand for shared office spaces dropped over the course of the lockdowns. Huge businesses cancelled flexible office memberships to save on costs. And while some co-working space operators remain open for business, they are mandated to adhere to safety and social distancing measures, which considerably impact the space allocated for occupants within a shared location. However, post pandemic, businesses will find ways to avoid big-ticket spending and huge financial commitments. This, in turn, will drive demand for pre-built corporate spaces and lease flexibility.

Flexible office spaces including co-working are still at a nascent stage in the region. The current flexible office space landscape is largely dominated by domestic players or niche operators. Certain key global brands are yet to enter the market and others have not introduced their full-service offerings. Occupiers on the other hand are contemplating regulatory and other implications of flexible spaces on their local operations.

Scope of the Report

Coworking spaces are essentially shared workspaces. They offer affordable office space for those looking to escape the isolation of a home office or coffee shop. These shared workspaces offer a suite of office-like amenities such as hot-desks, private meeting rooms, kitchens, coffee and more. Often, they also offer a community. Occupants typically are freelancers, entrepreneurs, start-ups and small teams who want to take advantage of a flexible space.

Increase in Millennial Population

Millennials, or those between the ages of 20 and 40, are reshaping the world and demanding new methods of working. Bahrain's real estate business is focusing on altering working and work space demands in order to respond to future needs.

The use of co-working spaces, a shared setting where people doing a variety of vocations can work together and separately inside the same place, is a new way of working that has recently emerged. The spaces are frequently urban and trendy, and they are a far cry from some of the harsher 'cubicle farms' of previous years. They provide freedom, flexibility, and a diverse range of work settings.

Millennials are increasingly entering the workforce, and their presence necessitates a paradigm shift in the workplace. There are 14,000 coworking spaces in operation throughout the world, and by the end of this year, 1.7 million workers, largely millennials, will have taken advantage of the improved working circumstances offered by coworking spaces.
