What is the size coworking industry (ie how many users / customers ) and how does that demographic break down by gender and age?
Hello! Thanks for your question about the coworking industry in the United States. The short version is that there are 3600 coworking spaces in the United States. With an average number of 110 members per location, there are approximately 400,000 of people using the coworking spaces in some capacity. 40% of coworking space members are female. The average coworking member is 35 years old. Below you will find a deep dive of my findings.
I found an article on ReJournals that cited a recent study by The Instant Group on flexible work spaces. According to the report "Flexible Workspace Review: US 2016", there were 3600 coworking spaces in 2016.
DeskMag published the results of their "Coworking in the U.S. 2016" report which states that the average space has 110 members with 70 workstations.
110 members * 3600 locations = 396,000 = rounded to 400,000 members in the USA
KEY FINDING: There are approximately 400,00 co-working space members in the USA.
