  • The pandemic accelerated the growth of co-working spaces in the country, as traditional workspaces faced challenges during the crisis. Many enterprises moved toward co-working spaces because of affordable prices and flexibility in working areas. Also, co-working spaces ensure to provide a safe working environment.
  • The sector is driven by increasing demand from freelancers, small and medium-scale enterprises (SMEs), and startups. Because the industry provides top facilities at affordable prices, large-scale enterprises are also adopting co-working spaces after realizing the benefits offered by the industry. Also, the increasing number of startups with high investment flow rates has resulted in robust sector growth.
  • The previous year has seen a rebound in the co-working space industry, driven by the increased demand for flexible office space. Co-working spaces have grown in popularity among businesses in India, with demand doubling over the past four years. In the first quarter of 2023, co-working spaces accounted for 27% of the net absorption of 8.2 million sq. ft. across the top seven cities, marking a substantial rise from 14% in Q1 2019.

India Co-working Office Spaces Market Trends

Cost Optimization is Driving the Significant Growth in the Sector

In India, startups mainly prefer co-working spaces for cost-effectiveness. Users only pay for what they use and rent, nothing extra, and there are no hassles or spending on infrastructure maintenance and repair, which conventional offices include. Since startups initially function on limited capital, lower costs of performing work are in their favor. Companies not bound by long-term lease contracts with strict terms in a regularly changing economic environment will be better positioned. Co-working spaces offer flexible tariffs that can combine service packages, such as choosing precisely what suits users' needs. In case users need to reduce or, on the contrary, increase the project team, for example, if companies enter a period of rapid growth and need more employees, using co-working spaces can always do it.

The companies' bottom lines are a crucial factor driving demand for co-working space. Based on locations nationwide, co-working offers a 12-72% cost reduction compared to traditional office space. The cost of traditional office space quickly adds up. In addition to lease payments, prices for conventional office space include utilities, internet, and tech support and maintenance. Conversely, utilities, internet, tech support, and maintenance are typically included in co-working memberships. Businesses of all sizes have caught on to the cost savings of shared workspace.
