Coworking Space Market Insights

While in 2020 the coworking market is forecasted to grow at around half the rate as the previous two years, the overall outlook for 2021 and onwards is extremely positive, and so were coworking operators’ sentiments before Covid-19.

Based on data from the 2019 Coworker Member’s Choice Awards, before the coronavirus hit the world economy around 77% of the coworking operators surveyed said they plan to expand by opening new locations.

32% of operators said they planned to open one new location by 2020, and 38% said they plan to open 2-3 new locations.

What might be even more interesting is the forecasted growth of larger companies, given that almost 

9% of respondents said they plan to open 8+ new locations by the end of 2020.

This signals that many multi-location spaces are turning into small chains that serve entire regions.

Of the respondents, 52.03% of respondents operate one total location under the umbrella of their brand, while 28.61% operate two-three total locations, and 12.62% operate 8 or more.

 From February 2020  (pre-lockdowns) and May 2020 (post-lockdowns),  Coworking market is going through ups and down, but after covid19 lockdown now its show upwords, its seems as in coming days market will show good growth.
