Having said that, the sharing economy is yet to reach its full potential by targeting this consumer group. Given that over three in five of Gen Y (Millennial) consumers globally say they are concerned or very concerned about their current financial situation, based on GlobalData’s 2017 Q1 global consumer survey, such services would continue to lure in today’s discerning millennial consumer.
