Growing safety concerns related to the usage of public transport facilities among commuters are supporting the amplifying market trend of ride sharing services. Overcrowded public transport facilities including subways and buses cause high level of discomfort while travelling. These facilities also pose a risk of spreading of infections and viral diseases. Increasing demand for comfortable intercity transport is driving the market growth.

Significant increase in ownership of private cars coupled with insufficient network of roads in populated cities has led to a rapid increase in traffic congestion. According to the industry update by the Federal Highway Administration, congestion on roads takes up more than 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 in the last 20 years. Shifting preference toward reducing the daily travel time is fueling the market for ride sharing services.

The major factor hampering the market expansion 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 acceptance 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.

The rapidly spreading COVID-19 pandemic is adversely impacting the ride sharing market demand. 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, hampering the market size in 2020. The impact of this industry challenge is expected to reduce owing to the increasing sanitization and safety measures undertaken by ride sharing companies.

Growing trend of P2P (Peer-to-Peer) ride sharing services propelling the market revenue

The P2P business model is projected to witness around 7.5% growth rate till 2026. The demand for shared mobility services on a very short notice for commute to the desired location is increasing the usage 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.

Electric cars segment accounted for 3% of the market share in 2019impelled by rising vehicular emission concerns. The companies operating in the market 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 supporting the growing market expansion from electric cars.

Market leaders are collaborating with automobile manufacturers to expand their fleet of electric cars for ride sharing purposes. For instance, in September 2020, Uber partnered with Volkswagen to add more electric cars to its ride hailing and sharing services in Europe. 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.

The establishment of stringent emission regulations by authorities, such as the Environment Protection Agency (EPA), is further boosting the regional market revenue.

Increasing awareness among corporate players to promote ride sharing services will influence the North America market growth.
