Besides the number of global coworking spaces, the number of coworkers is also expected to explode from 1.74 million by the end of 2017 to a most impressive total of 5.1 million users in 2022.

The significant forecast is delivered by US business portal Small Business Labs in association with the Global Coworking Unconference Conference (GCUC).

The expected growth in the number of global coworking spaces crosses an average increase of 16.1 percent in each of the next five years up to 2022.

The explosive growth rate in the global number of future coworking users the forecast estimates to hit 24.2 percent per year within the same period.



"If the forecast should appear to be close, the ´revolution´of coworking will face a fantastic, definitive breakthrough," Global Relationship Manager Martin Roerholt,, comments.

"The optimistic growth rates of the US forecast are considerably higher than our MatchOffice forecasts, but this may be caused by the fact that our data are mainly based on the movements of the European market and less of the American."
