As of 2019, about 27% of co-working spaces are located in the US, particularly in New York and San Francisco.
Key Market Trends
Growth of Coworking Spaces Market over the years
The Ňspace-as-a-serviceÓ business model is growing rapidly. Coworking growth is evident in nearly every relevant metric, including the number of new leases, number of seats, dedicated square footage, and growth rate. The increase in remote workers, decentralization of work, and prevalence of startups and small business cultures are some of the reasons for the growth of the market. The Flexible spaces have grown at an average annual rate of 23% since 2010. Coworking in the United States has recently gained popularity and since 2017 they account for ~30% of new total U.S. office tenants. In 2017, there were over 4,000 coworking spaces in the U.S.; this number is predicted to increase to over 6,200 by 2022. In 2017, there were around 1.18 million people working in coworking spaces worldwide and out of those, 542,000 people were working in coworking spaces in the United States.

USA leads the coworking spaces market in terms of Real Estate (Sq. feet)
With more than 80 million square feet of flexible workspace, the US is the largest market in the industry, with coworking giants like WeWork and Regus managing 23 million square feet. New York accounts for the largest concentration of flexible working spaces, with over 330 coworking centers. Operators of these spaces occupy 9.2 million square feet in the Manhattan office market with WeWork officially overtaking JP Morgan Chase & Co. as the largest office tenant in September 2018. It is believed that there is still massive potential for further growth in the sector, as the markets are far from saturation and despite this huge growth in New York, flexible workspaces only actually account for 2.5% of ManhattanŐs office occupancy. This growth is being led not only by freelancers and start-ups looking for casual coworking environments, but also by larger corporations utilizing this flexible space to expand their business in a controlled and affordable manner. New York isnŐt the only place in the US experiencing a growth spurt. Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago have all witnessed more than 15% year-on-year growth in coworking spaces with currently over 566 workspaces between them.
The industry is quite fragmented with many players existing in the coworking spaces market, also many more are entering the market to fulfill the rapid demand for casual environment offices. As far as competitive landscape is concerned, WeWork leads the market, with over 400,000 members across the globe and around 43% revenue coming from outside the United States.
