Over the past decade, the world has witnessed the rise of a new sharing economy – one where people use Internet and mobile technologies to access goods and resources provided by their peers, rather than a traditional corporate vendor. As of 2013, the five main sectors of the sharing economy comprised a market of about US$ 15 Billion globally, according to PwC.
