Coworking has been showing a positive trend for almost a ten years period. According to recent forecasts in 2022 the number of Coworking spaces will be around 30,000 compared to only 14 in 2007. This is a huge growth for such a short period of time.
The expected number of customers using Coworking Spaces is expected to be 5 million by the year 2022, with Coworking becoming the preferred way to work for the majority of entrepreneurs, startups, small companies, and even flextime and work from home employees of large organizations.

On the market we can see big and small companies providing Coworking spaces to different customers, aiming to meet all kinds of needs. What makes Coworking successful?
Coworking is a light-weight way to use a professional office space. It does not require one signing complex leasing contracts and dealing with the landlord. Its on-demand business model makes it ideal for those who do not need an office space 24/7 – they can drop in as they need, and there are different types of memberships that can cater to all of the unique needs out there.
The most recent trend, in addition to private small entrepreneurs and startups using Coworking Spaces, is that large and well-established organizations are now also exploring the benefits of Coworking for their small remote teams, work-from-home employees or meetings outside of their regular office space.
Coworking is catching up with everyone, and it offers flexibility, freedom, options and network opportunities to those who favour this type of setting.
