  4. 4. Purpose 1. To research what sharing economy is and to know there is a potential to grow in the market or not. While I am living in current generation, the opportunity to use p2p services is getting to be increased like UBER, Lyft and Airbnb. From my experience, the services is purely useful and cheaper than others had already existed, which means those services have a potential to allow people’s life more convenience and more comfortable. I just contribute to make people’s lifestyle comfortable. And I believe that market place of sharing economy will be continuously expanded in the future. 2. To know what kind of companies are existing and dead. Although I am using p2p services in my life, there are many companies existing that I just don’t know. To join sharing economy market, I have to know what kind of companies can exist and how growing they are. When I can know those information, I can fight this area.
  5. 5. What is “Sharing Economy”? The sharing economy is an economic model often defined as a peer-to-peer (P2P) based activity of acquiring, providing or sharing access to goods and services that are facilitated by a community based on-line platform. Collaborative consumption or the sharing economy refers rather to resource circulation systems which allow a consumer two-sided role, in which consumers may act as both providers of resources or obtainers of resources
  6. 6. Why is “Sharing Economy” pervasive? 2. Rampant spread of poverty: These resulted to corresponding increases in unemployment and underemployment. In order to adapt, there is a need to come up with alternative business models and economic structures. 3. Rise of information technologies: Certainly, it is now easier for people from different parts of the globe to communicate and transact directly with others. 1. Rapid population growth: As the population grows, demand for goods and services also increases, so there is a need to look for alternative ways to address the increasing demand for these resources
  7. 7. What is advantage of “Sharing Economy”? 1. Circulation of resources. 2. Full utilization of resources. 3. Development of a culture of trust. 4. Increase in product or service variation. 5. Evolution of the role of organizations or companies. What is risk of “Sharing Economy”? 1. Security issues: If one party fails to deliver or keep its end of the bargain, there are serious consequences that must be dealt with. 2. Accountability issues: This risk is higher in companies that act as third parties or intermediaries in two-party transactions
  8. 8. How to grow “Sharing Economy” in the future ・The sharing economy is estimated to grow from $14 billion in 2014 to $335 billion by 2025. ・Growth rate of sharing economy and traditional rental 2013 to 2025 ・In Airbnb cases, Airbnb are stronger than hotel markets. ←Traditional rental sectors are gonna be weaker than sharing economy market.
