Share Economy

Collaborative consumption is becoming more mainstream as consumer values shift

Implications - With little to no risk, any consumer can participate in the peer-to-peer economy, relying on it for everything from carpooling, to toy rentals to kitchen appliance sharing. The movement from B2C from P2C is driven by the sense of community built, the convenience of participation and a growing environmental awareness and distaste for over-consumption.
