New Coworking Space Openings Worldwide: October 2018

The coworking and flexible workspace industry has been shaped by various factors over the years, gaining in popularity exponentially as the demand for it increases. Our monthly report presents to you a comprehensive, international analysis which includes market insights and other data about shared spaces. We hope these findings can benefit you and your business.

October's list is packed with more statistics, data graphs, and more visuals that can help you understand the industry better.

Here's how we categorize the coworking spaces:

  • New spaces: Indicates brand-new businesses.
  • Expansions: Indicates companies opening their second location or more.
  • Chains: Indicates coworking franchises.

We have also included figures and analysis on each new opening to give you a clear idea of what’s happening in the coworking industry.

Overview

This month, there are 238 new openings and 46.2 percent of them are new businesses entering the market. This is a strong indication of a steady, rising coworking trend. If we compare these statistics to September, the numbers are quite similar. Half of the new spaces opened each month are new businesses. Aside from big players, like WeWork, the coworking industry is clearly powered by small, independent business owners, many of whom are entering the market for the first time.

Our research also highlights 102 businesses that have successfully established their initial coworking space and have now graduated to scaling their business in multiple locations.

The remaining 10.9 percent are large coworking chains such as WeWork and Mindspace who continue to expand their franchises all over the world.

Coworking Trends in the United States

Coworking openings in USA

There are 109 announced openings in the U.S, a 3% increase compared to last month and a steady increase over time, according to previous statistics. Openings in the U.S. made up almost half of all new openings in September in these states:

  • Colorado: 9 new spaces
  • Texas: 10 new spaces
  • New York: 11 new spaces

While coworking has become a global phenomenon, the U.S. continues to lead the pack with 45.6 percent of September openings. Other noteworthy states include California with eight new openings and Ohio with five new openings, a testament to the spreading influence of coworking beyond major cities.

International Coworking Trends

Coworking Spaces Openings Wordwide
Coworking openings based on our 4-months of data collected

There are 37 openings in the United Kingdom in September, a 20% increase from last month. Out of these, most are in more populated cities such as London and Manchester but we can also see brand-new businesses opening in less densely populated areas such as Hinckley. This shows how widely coworking has expanded in just one month alone. The coworking industry is also growing fast in Australia and Canada with 12 and 17 openings.

On the other side of the globe, India takes 11 spots from the new Asian coworking openings, followed by the Philippines.

As businesses continue to climb the curve, it's clear that coworking will continue to rise in the coming years.
