The short-term rental sector is rapidly expanding. Beyond key platforms in this sector, there is a growing ecosystem of property managers, startups and vendors that are competing to commercialize this space as regulators consider the rules and who's responsible for enforcing them.

When looking at the extensive ecosystem that has grown around short-term rentals in the past decade and the impact it has had on existing sectors like traditional vacation rentals and the hospitality industry, it’s hard to overstate the scale at which this shift has affected travel.

As we noted in our recent Skift Research Report on short-term rentals, the sector’s impact goes beyond hotels, with realtors and property investors increasingly looking at short-term rentals as a lucrative alternative to their regular practices. Meanwhile, regulators are scratching their heads about the best way to legislate all these developments as hotels are lobbying for stricter regulations while at the same time entering the sector through acquisitions or new brand launches.
