Who is Actually Using the Sharing Economy? (Available on Medium)

There are many benefits to the sharing economy, which the UK population is increasingly taking advantage of. Think about the ease of giving away or selling your goods with online services, the ability to car share with apps such as Uber and Lyft, or even the simplicity of renting out your home while you’re away through AirBnB. Not only can you access goods and services at lower prices than ever before, but the sharing economy also provides an opportunity for anyone to make some cash. Everyone is a winner! 

The next installment in our sharing economy series

In the previous article of our series on the sharing economy (available exclusively on Medium), we talked about the industries dominating in this space. In this latest article, we explore who uses it the most and how that changes by age, demographic and industry.

And what drives this ongoing growth in the sharing economy? Convenience? Affordability? Variety? Sustainability? Well, all of the above really, but we don’t want to give it all away. Click here to find out more.
