Sharing or paring? - Growth of the sharing economy

The “sharing economy” companies that are emerging on the back of radical changes in consumer habits – Couchsurfing, Airbnb, Uber and their peers – have overturned entire sectors with their so-called “creative disruption” in the space of only a few years. We can safely say that they are associated with one of the most important global trends and success stories of recent years and, with all certainty, of years to come, and – although controversial – they are going to bring profound changes to our business environment. Certain sharing economy players have grown into global companies in the space of only a few years. In July 2015, according to an analysis by the Wall Street Journal, Uber’s value had topped 50 billion dollars, making it worth more than 80% of the S&P 500 companies, while Airbnb was valued at 24 billion dollars. A related study by PwC shows that while in 2013 the sharing economy companies in the five sectors where the new business model is the most prevalent earned sales revenue of 15 billion dollars, by 2025 this will have risen to 335 billion dollars, so half of the revenues in these markets will go to companies with a sharing-based model.
