Timbro has for the first time presented The Sharing Economy Index (TSEI), a report on the size of the global sharing economy. The index has been developed by a group of researchers, including Andreas Bergh, IFN and Lund University. The researchers have analyzed how much Internet traffic companies with share-based services have. The researchers have also counted the number of activities by suppliers like Airbnb and HomeAway across the world. A total of 286 companies have been mapped.
