China and India: Expansion of the Superpowers - International - June 2019

A decade ago collaborative consumption was a relatively unknown concept and tourism related goods and services – including accommodation, rental cars and guided tours – were booked almost exclusively through travel agents or direct with a mainstream tourism provider such as a hotel, car rental firm or holiday letting company. The sharing economy has disrupted the tourism industry considerably in the interim and two of its biggest players – Airbnb and Uber – are now among the world’s biggest and most well-known brands. The number of tourism related shareconomy platforms has also grown significantly and includes things like room-sharing, ride-sharing, car-sharing, skill-sharing (in the form of guided tours, excursions and workshops), food and drink-sharing and even clothes-sharing.”
