B8. Factors Influencing Collaborative Consumption Usage in the Us Market: an Exploratory Study

Businesses are increasingly developing collaborative consumption-based (CC) models. To capitalize on opportunities, they must understand what drives and deters consumers’ CC participation. This research examines how attitudes, trust, sustainability, materialism, risk propensity, and generosity affect consumers’ CC usage. We find that attitude, trust, sustainability, and generosity predict CC usage.
