Increasing demand for cost-effective and convenient mobility on demand services is expected to drive the car sharing market over the coming years. The daily commuters are depending on this car rental service due to the increase in passenger traffic in buses, rails, and metros. Countries such as Argentina, Brazil, India, and China are the major economies with high public transit crowd. The passengers are highly concerned with the safety & security of their belongings in crowded transport facilities. These services allow passengers to rent out the car for short travel distances with nominal charges. The price competitiveness among the players is allowing customers to select the rental service from a large number of alternative price options. Moreover, the rental charges of the global players vary from country to country to suit the economic budget of the passengers. For instance, Zipcar offers rental service in the U.S. with a trip cost of around USD 17–35 while in the UK, it costs around USD 17–23 for a one-hour traveling duration.

Rising concerns towards increased air pollution and vehicular emissions is being witnessed globally. Some of the environmental benefits of vehicle sharing include reduced GHG emissions & traffic congestion, increased usage of low-emission vehicles, and reduced noise pollution. According to the report of UC Berkeley’s Transportation Sustainability Research Center (TSRC), Car2go’s ride-hailing and vehicle sharing service in North America kept around 28,000 privately-owned vehicles off the road. This service reduced carbon emissions between 5.5-12.7 metric tons per vehicle per year. Moreover, the increased contribution of the players to reduce the carbon emission levels with the introduction of electric vehicles is anticipated to drive the car sharing market demand. For instance, in June 2019, Volkswagen announced the launch of WeShare electric car sharing service in Berlin.

Car Sharing Market, By Model

The P2P car sharing model is predicted to witness high growth over the coming years owing to the increased flexibility in renting out the vehicles to gain monetary benefits. In 2017, it accounted for over 25% of the global industry share. This model allows vehicle owners to charge a fee for renting their vehicles when not in regular use. Moreover, it allows the user to get pay-as-you-drive access to the available cars around with additional benefits such as maintenance, insurance, and car wash. It also reduces the purchase of separate commercial cars by players for service delivery, reducing the traffic congestion and carbon emissions of vehicles. However, some of the major factors that are challenging the P2P services include low public awareness, lack of confidence, and trust issues.
