NUMBER OF COWORKING SPACES WORLDWIDE TO DOUBLE WITHIN THE NEXT 4 YEARS

  • Recent research has found that the number of coworking spaces worldwide is projected to reach almost 20,000 in 2020.

  • In 2020 the coworking market is forecasted to grow at around half the rate as the previous two years, due to the coronavirus.

  • However, the study expects growth to rebound from 2021 onwards, with a yearly growth rate of 21.3% until 2024.



A new study reveals the current state of the global coworking and flexible space industry and the impact of the pandemic on its projected growth.

CoworkingResources and Coworker.com pooled their resources to publish the 2020 Global Coworking Growth Study. The information is based on their own proprietary data including workspace listings and pricing, alongside data from Google Trends and Deskmag.

Top takeaways include:

  • The number of coworking spaces worldwide is projected to reach almost 20,000 in 2020.

  • The number of coworking spaces worldwide is expected to more than double by 2024, and surpass 40,000.

  • In 2020 the coworking market is forecasted to grow at around half the rate as the previous two years, due to the coronavirus.

  • However, the study expects growth to rebound from 2021 onwards, with a yearly growth rate of 21.3% until 2024.

  • Around 5 million people will work from coworking spaces by 2024, an increase of 158% compared to 2020.

Where are the Biggest Markets and the Biggest Spaces?

The US is home to the world’s biggest co-working and flexible space market, with over 3,700 shared workspaces across the country. This is followed by India (2,197 spaces) and the United Kingdom (1,044 spaces).

Based on yearly growth in 2020, out of the largest markets, Germany and India are the two fastest-growing, followed by the United States and Canada.

China is the country with the largest coworking capacity, with an average of 282 people per space, which is more than twice the average capacity of spaces in the US (105 people).

North America and Asia have the largest spaces in the world, with an average size of 9,799 sq ft and 8,101 sq ft respectively.



Smaller spaces are more commonly found in Europe and South America.

Size and capacity are normally linked with profitability. But with spaces forced to reduce the capacity for physical distancing during the pandemic, it remains to be seen how heavily this reduction in foot traffic will impact spaces of all sizes around the world.
