Cost Optimization is Driving the Significant Growth in the Sector

In India, Coworking spaces are preferred mainly by startups for cost-effectiveness. Users only pay for what they use and rent, nothing extra; there are no hassles and spending on infrastructure maintenance and repair, which conventional offices include. Since startups function on limited capital initially, lower costs of performing work are in their favor. Companies not bound by long-term lease contracts with strict terms in a regularly changing economic environment will be better positioned. The Coworking Spaces offers flexible tariffs that can combine service packages, such as choosing precisely what suits users' needs. In case users need to reduce or, on the contrary, increase the project team, for example, if companies enter a period of rapid growth and need more employees, using Coworking spaces can always do it.

So, the companies' bottom lines are a crucial factor driving demand for coworking space. Based on locations nationwide, coworking offers a 12-72 percent cost reduction compared to traditional office space. The cost of traditional office space quickly adds up.
