Significant increase in ownership of private cars coupled with insufficient network of roads in populated cities has led to rapid increase in traffic congestion. According to the industry update by the Federal Highway Administration, congestion on roads takes up above 37% of the travel time of daily commuters in the U.S. High traffic congestion in cities has increased the overall travel time by an average of 3.5 hours over the last 20 years.

The major factor hampering the industry growth is the limited availability of technology and supportive infrastructure. The unavailability of convenient parking spots and pick-up & drop locations for cars in densely populated cities is challenging the wide usage of carpooling services. One of the major barriers of entry for new market players is the high investment required to develop a supportive technological support for ride sharing services in terms of mobile applications and location tracking.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The rapidly spreading COVID-19 pandemic is adversely impacting the ride sharing market growth. Social distancing norms and regulations implemented by government and healthcare authorities encourage citizens to maintain a two-meter distance from other persons for safety. This has restricted the usage of ride sharing services for daily commute. Users prefer to travel in their own vehicles due to health and safety concerns. The impact of this industry challenge is expected to reduce impelled by the increasing sanitization and safety measures undertaken by ride sharing companies.

Growing trend of P2P ride sharing services

The P2P ride sharing is projected to observe growth rate of more than 7.5% CAGR through 2026. The demand for shared mobility services on a very short notice for commute to the desired location is increasing the adoption of P2P carpooling services. This business model allows users to contact drivers in their vicinity through GPS and location services. Commuters can conveniently connect to car owners through their smart devices such as phones and tablets. The emergence of new platforms is supporting the growth of P2P carpooling services.

Electric cars segment captured around 3% of the global ride sharing market share in 2019. These vehicles are witnessing a growing demand through 2026 led by rising vehicular emission concerns. Companies are focusing on minimizing the carbon footprint of their business operations by adding electric cars to their fleet. Shifting consumer preference toward using sustainable mobility solutions for routine commute is further augmenting the market revenues.

Industry participants are collaborating with automobile manufacturers to expand their fleet of electric cars for ride sharing purposes.

Through this partnership, Uber will add new e-Golf cars to its carpooling fleet in Germany. The company aims to offer 100% of its rides in electric cars by 2030 in major North American and European countries.
