By the end of 2018, the number of coworking spaces worldwide was 16,599, despite the rate of year-on-year growth having slowed down to 9.5% from 15.2% of 2018.

In 2019, new coworking space openings are expected to drop by around 22% as operators focus on increasing their occupancy over wholesale expansion.

Last year saw more corporate clients seeking out flexible office space, which likely has contributed to the massive boom the industry is experiencing. In fact, research predicts that by 2022, 60% of workers within flexible spaces will likely be apart of large organizations.

Looking forward, Smith predicts that the market will experience more consolidation from large office providers.
