Number of Airbnb users in the U.S. 2016-2022

In 2017, the number of adults using Airbnb in the United States amounted to 33.9 million, up from 29 million the previous year. This figure is forecast to reach 45.6 million by 2022.

Why do people use Airbnb?

The privately owned accommodation, rental and sharing website Airbnb has gained popularity all over the world. This is due to multiple factors including: cheaper lodging alternatives, a more authentic experience, uniqueness of accommodation and more. A survey found that 55 percent of U.S.-based & European Airbnb users were ‘very satisfied’ with their experience. On the other hand, two percent stated that they were ‘somewhat dissatisfied’ or ‘not at all satisfied’ with using the accommodation sharing platform.

Why don't people use Airbnb?

Despite the large amount of people that are satisfied with their Airbnb experience, there still remain those in Europe and the U.S. that do not want to use the company's services. The most common reason for people not to use Airbnb were privacy concerns, according to a 2017 survey – with 36 percent of respondents expressing this fear.
