Two years with covid have accustomed office employees to work independently and flexibly at home. Now that working life is gradually normalizing, a lot of office workers intend to maintain their newfound flexibility - in a coworking space.

The covid pandemic has forever changed the way office people view their workplace. Studies show that up to 80% of employees do not want to return to their former office after experiencing the flexibility of working from home.

For instance, a US survey revealed that 39% of the responding office employees would rather resign than return to the rigid office environment where they worked before the pandemic. 

Companies are now recognizing the benefits by permitting free choice of workplaces and schedules to their office workers - among other options in a coworking space.   

During the first global covid lockdowns, the coworking industry suffered severe losses. In the current reopening phase, the market rises significantly and seems to become the biggest post-corona winner of the CRE market.       


Strong growth 

As employees are reentering their offices, the coworking spaces are now experiencing higher increases than expected. In early 2022, the number of coworking environments worldwide expects to reach 25,000, estimated to exceed 40,000 workspaces by 2024.

The coworking market is heading for significant growth in the coming years. Globally, the coworking industry calculates to have a value of $8 billion, expected to reach $13 billion by 2025 due to new company workflows.

 



The post-corona reopening gets entrepreneurs, freelancers, small businesses, and
large as well back to the coworking environments around the world.

To a large extent, the rising growth rate of the industry is the result of increased demands from corporate customers. Also, global coworking providers continue to expand with new locations.

CRE experts estimate that up to five million people will work from coworking spaces by 2024. That would be an increase of 158% compared to 2020.


Embraces needs

"The popularity of the coworking concept has been increasing over the last decade. What started as an alternative for freelancers and entrepreneurs has now been highly accepted by companies of all sizes.  

In this late phase of the pandemic, coworking spaces are again starting to boom because they - under strict security measures - are ideal for embracing modern office needs of companies," MatchOffice CEO Jakob Dalhoff says.
