The global report and the national and regional reports concerning the selected countries and regions referring to the situation in the sharing economy sector are available.


Reports were developed in the framework of the project “Sharing Skills” in order to understand the importance of sharing economy.


Some of the areas covered by the reports include:

  • Market Sectors of Sharing Economy with an example of companies (at least two) for every sector.
  • Determination of providers and users per market sector.
  • The profile or providers and the “normal” business model for participating into the “sharing economy” as a service provider.


More questions to be answered include:

  • Is sharing economy adding value to a state GDP?
  • Side-effects of sharing economy. How does the traditional market react towards the penetration of sharing economy? Are there areas of cooperation or is the conflict situation more tending?
