Sharing economy services are expanding, as the efficiency of the resources is enhanced by sharing the resources of the individual consumers and also the direction of consumption is changed to fulfill needs of individual. Therefore, this paper develops the empirical analysis model by considering the features of sharing economy services, and conducts study by utilizing the extended TAM by adding price sensitivity, reliability and perceived enjoyment to TAM in order to analyze the factors that affect the use intention of sharing economy services and to reflect the distinctiveness of sharing economy services. The results of the analysis showed that price sensitivity, self-efficacy, technology innovation, reliability, perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, perceived enjoyment and use intention are affected in different ways. This study is able to provide clear understanding for use intention of sharing economy services, also implications for expanded use intention to the consumers.
