Statistical view of co-working spaces
Currently, there are 1,000 operational co-working centres, with a capacity of more than 4 lakh seats, across six major cities, as per property consultant Cushman & Wakefield.
Over the last 3-4 years, the number of flexible space operators has risen from single digits to about 350.
According to the report, the user base of flexible workspaces will jump 10 times to nearly 3 million by 2025. Presently, 65-70% of demand for co-working spaces comes from large corporates, 15-20% from small & medium enterprises and 10-15% from freelancers and startups.
The co-working demand in India is dominated by small and medium businesses and enterprises with the co-working space occupancy at about 90%. These companies are going to dominate the segment and drive demand.
The firms today look at converting capital investment into an operational investment, flexibility with a shorter lock-in period, better infrastructure and well-designed workspaces.
