Company value of Airbnb 2016-2018

Airbnb has become a global phenomenon in recent years, while it has seen its fair share of controversy since the company’s foundation in 2008 it is still a highly valuable company. In 2018, Airbnb was valued at 38 billion U.S. dollars, up from 31 billion the previous year.

How do people feel about Airbnb?

While Airbnb’s speedy growth has caused bad press due to issues such as property rental shortages for locals, illegal sub-letting & safety concerns, it has still got a substantial number of loyal users. The privately-owned accommodation rental and sharing website has becoming increasingly well-known all over the world, mostly due to the company providing cheaper more ‘authentic’ alternatives to a hotel room. Given its high brand value, it comes to no surprise that a survey found 55 percent of American and European Airbnb users were ‘very satisfied’ with their Airbnb experience. That being said, not everyone was a happy customer, two percent stated that they were ‘somewhat dissatisfied’ or ‘not at all satisfied’ with using the online home-sharing platform.

Familiarity with Airbnb in the United States

Despite the company having evolved into a large global brand over the last years, there still remains a large number of people left that are not familiar with the platform. In the United States, a 2018 survey found that 21 percent of respondents were unfamiliar with Aribnb, while 35 percent were 'somewhat familiar' with the accommodation sharing website.
