Airbnb's Supply Has More Than Doubled Over The Past Four Years, According To Data From Analytics Firm AirDNA

US home rental company Airbnb Inc's supply has more than doubled over the past four years, while surpassing some of the traditional hotel chains combined, data from analytics firm AirDNA has shown.

The relative appeal for short-term rentals with larger living space and their location in remote destinations has proven vital for Airbnb during the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing it to perform better than traditional forms of lodging over the last year, AirDNA said.

Airbnb's global active listings increased by 2.5% as of February of 2021, compared with a year earlier, according to the firm.

Globally, there were over 5.4 million active listings on Airbnb, with more units available for rent than the combined total of 3.3 million units at hotel chains Marriott, Hilton, and IHG, AirDNA said.

Supply At The Beginning Of 2017

Airbnb had a supply of 2.3 million units at the beginning of 2017.
