“Evolution of sharing economy – shift from businesses to individuals; more diversified items”
According to an analysis, there has been a shift in the main agents of “sharing economy,” a trend where people rent items such as automobiles and houses when they need rather than own their own products, from businesses to individuals, while shared items have been diversified. In other words, we are now seeing an evolution to a so-called “micro sharing economy.”
This analysis is presented in the “Trend analysis report on sharing economy: the advent of micro sharing economy” released by Innocean Worldwide (CEO: Ahn, Kun-Hee) on Dec 21st.
