Monetary benefits from car-sharing are supporting the demand for P2P sharing services

The P2P car sharing market accounted for over 25% revenue share in 2019. The demand for P2P sharing is significantly increasing owing to easy access to private car rentals. P2P business model allows private car owners to rent personal cars that are not in regular use. Vehicle owners can charge a rental fee and provide additional services such as insurance and car maintenance.


Moreover, users can easily rent cars for short-distance commutes through websites and smartphone applications that connect them to car owners. P2P sharing aids commercial service providers to use rental cars for delivering their services, reducing the need to purchase new commercial cars.
 

Growing adoption of one-way car sharing model owing to increased flexibility

In terms of members, the one-way business model segment holds around 15% of the car sharing market share in 2020. Increased customer convenience and flexibility of use are major factors contributing to the segment growth. This business model allows users to rent a car for their commute and park it according to their convenience.


One-way car sharing also assists users in intercity travel, reducing the number of private cars on the road. This aids in reducing traffic congestion and emissions, minimizing the harmful impact on the environment.
 

The industry players are focusing on offering an enhanced driving experience to its customers to cater the industry demand. For instance, in November 2019, Tesloop, a car rental startup based in the U.S, expanded its one-way route network with an LA-Las Vegas route. The company offers three tesla models on rent with an autopilot mode for enhanced driving experience.
