Market Overview

The co-working office space market is expected to record a CAGR of over 10% during the forecast period.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations have chosen to work from home. Therefore, there was a huge drop in the number of walk-ins to the office during the pandemic. However, office space demand is increasing steadily, showing huge potential for growth in the market.

Currently, North America dominates the co-working space market. This trend is projected to continue during the forecast period as the region has the most co-working spaces in terms of size, with an average of 9,799 sq. ft per space. The increased acceptance of flexible work methods, service offices, and remote teams fuel this massive demand for co-working spaces. However, due to increased knowledge of the substantial benefits of co-working spaces among the population, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to see a steady rise in the co-working space market.

Scope of the Report

A co-working office space is an arrangement in which workers of different companies share an office space, allowing cost savings and convenience through the use of common infrastructures, such as equipment, utilities, reception and custodial services, and, in some cases, refreshments and parcel acceptance services.

Key Market Trends

Rise in Start-ups Driving the Market

The co-working office space market is majorly determined by the increasing number of start-ups globally. For instance, according to a survey in 2020, nearly 1.4 million start-ups were founded in the third quarter of 2020, a 49% increase over the second quarter of 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic boosted the number of start-ups, as the number of new companies worldwide significantly surpassed the projections in 2020. Such a surge in entrepreneurship is attributed to workers who were laid off and started their own businesses.

As of 2021, the United States is the leading country by the number of start-ups (71,153), followed by India, with 13,125 start-ups, and the United Kingdom, with 6,220 start-ups.

Co-working spaces are not only helping reduce the cost of rent but additional utilities such as desks, high-speed Wi-Fi connection, coffee, meeting rooms, and recreation zones. Also, co-working spaces help start-ups in acquiring new talents from a number of freelancers daily, thus reducing the cost of recruitment.

The Growing Trend of Remote Working to Provide More Opportunities

Working from home is not a new trend. It has been around for quite some time. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations were forced to transition to remote work. These businesses can continue operating even if there is a crisis.

Remote work has increased significantly in recent years. From 3-5 days a week, about 20-25% of the workforce could work remotely. Many businesses have recognized the advantages of remote work and are moving toward a more flexible work environment. Some companies planned to adopt a more permanent remote-working model, while others planned to adopt hybrid models.

According to estimates, the number of co-working spaces worldwide may expand from 20,000 in 2020 to 40,000 in 2024. There are currently several well-known co-working spaces in Phoenix, Denver, and Nashville. These spaces will increase in the future.

As a result, more companies are investing in co-working spaces, allowing people to reap the benefits of remote work while reducing the drawbacks as co-working spaces provide more flexibility, higher employee productivity, and technology, allowing high connectivity for workers.
