20 Milestones in the History of the On-Demand Economy [Infographic]

The on-demand economy is defined as the economic activity created by digital marketplaces that fulfills consumer demands via immediate access to and convenient provisioning of goods and services.

This trend is redefining commerce around the world and showing no signs of slowing down. According to a recent report, on-demand companies have received over $4.8 billion in capital investment, with $2.2 billion invested in the last 12 months alone (theondemandeconomy.org). The on-demand transportation industry has received over $2.1 billion in financing and on-demand food delivery services are revolutionizing the $683 US restaurant industry. We are rapidly expanding our on-demand concierge selling service Gone across the United States.

So when did the on-demand revolution begin and what’s next? This infographic outlines some of the leading on-demand services which have bloomed over the years to make our day to day lives simpler and more efficient.
