Abstract

ShE is a growing trend worldwide: companies such as Uber, TaskRabbit, and AirbnB have already become huge global players. Estimates say that sharing economy will reach revenues of 335 billion USD by 2025 in different fields, including home and car sharing, lending, and video streaming (PWC 2015). According to NCBI (2020), when presenting four sharing economy categories (finance, transport, tourism, and retail), 86% of US consumers had engaged in at least one sharing economy activity, with 39% of them having used transport sharing. The average age of this group was 43, and they showed a moderate intention to share other kinds of services/goods. The future looks brighter for sharing economy amongst the younger generation, though: 29% of consumers, with an average age of 35, had engaged in three kinds of sharing: transport, retail, and tourism; and they were clearly willing to keep using sharing platforms—18% had engaged in all four categories with an average age of 33.

that there is some scope left for collectively shaping a challenging future”
