39% of Coworking Employees Work at WeWork, but Local Spaces May Grow as WeWork Drama Continue
WASHINGTON, Nov. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- WeWork is the most popular coworking space, but smaller, local coworking spaces are catching up, according to a new survey from Clutch, the leading B2B ratings and reviews platform. Coworking owners say yes, based on coworking's overall growth — the number of coworking spaces worldwide is expected to reach 26,000 in 2022, up from 18,000 in 2019 and 8,000 in 2015. "I think the smaller, local coworking spaces will overtake WeWork," said Andrew Schuh, marketing specialist at Focus Property Group, which owns Enterprise Coworking in Denver. Coworking employees also work in traditional offices (65%), remote locations (54%), and on-site locations such as labs or factories (37%).
