With the advent of the sharing economy, people everywhere are partaking and sharing some of their most valued assets. Also, the digital era provides various peer-to-peer platforms, which can make the connection between consumers and providers easy and efficient. Therefore, instead of owning one of everything, more people are choosing to share resources.
According to one global consulting firm, the world market for the sharing economy will expand to US$335 billion in 2025. What will it be like in Korea?
