Car Subscription Market size exceeded USD 5 billion in 2022 and is poised to grow at over 35% CAGR between 2023 and 2032. Growing demand for car leasing services globally will drive the market revenue.

Car Subscription Market

The flexibility and cost-effectiveness associated with car subscription services are major factors promoting product uptake. Increasing consumer interest in acquiring cars at affordable monthly installments, inclusive of the cost of insurance, maintenance, and roadside assistance, makes the subscription model feasible for such buyers. Furthermore, market participants are focusing on enhancing the existing technology for better booking services to make it accessible on all sorts of devices via a simple platform interface, which is expected to supplement industry development through the estimated timeline.

Inadequate transportation infrastructure may limit business expansion

Some developing countries are experiencing infrastructure development challenges. The lack of public transportation and infrastructure due to unfavorable economic and fiscal policies may prevent automobile subscription service providers from introducing their services in a specific location, limiting the market growth. However, increasing government investments and initiatives toward infrastructure development are projected to aid manufacturers in overcoming this restraint in the coming years.
