Pinpointing some of the most cunning examples of how the modern market is evolving, this collection of share economy innovations identifies key areas that are experiencing increased change.

Online retail and a plethora of alternative services like Uber and Airbnb has augmented consumers to accept experiences that are shared or partially private as long as there's a discount associated.

The rise of the sharing economy has developed slowly over the past few years, but has seen spikes in popularity within recent months. As such, everything from bicycles, to umbrellas are being shared with consumers preferring to rent something for as long as they need it rather than buy it outright. With the cost of living increasing steadily and consumers paying more for urban living, we could continue to see the share economy expanding even further.
