Global Ride Sharing Market Overview:


Ridesharing is the most technologically innovative transportation scheme that allows users to book a short ride as and when desired.Carpooling and platform-based travel services, car-sharing, and bike-sharing (e.g., Uber, Lyft, BlaBlaCar) all come under such conveyance systems. The main objective of introducing such a transportation mode is to reduce automotive pollution, road congestion, and car journeys. To schedule a trip in a privately owned car, one must use a mobile app. Nowadays, instead of owning a car, customers are primarily opting for ride-sharing systems, which reduces commuting costs and the burden associated with owning a vehicle.


Global Ride Sharing Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers 

Increasing Smartphone and Internet Diffusion

Since ridesharing is an internet-enabled service, having access to the internet is a prerequisite for using ride-sharing services in any corner of the world. Users must install an app on their smartphone and make use of data services to utilize the app as well as all navigation and information services connected to it. According to the International Telecommunication Union, the internet is used by nearly 81% of developing countries. On the other hand, 40% of developed countries have access to the internet, and this figure is rapidly rising.

Increase in the Cost of Vehicle Ownership

The cost of owning a personal car has increased due to rising fuel costs as well as increases in credit, insurance, and vehicle registration fees.Maintenance rates, which include the replacement of parts and components as well as labor costs, have also risen, contributing to the overall expense of vehicle ownership. Vehicles require complex, advanced, and expensive after-treatment devices in order to meet rigorous emission norms. These reasons have increased the cost of vehicle possession, which in turn has raised the admiration of ride-sharing services.



Lack of Advanced Technology


The primary reason hindering the market growth is the incomplete accessibility of technology and supporting infrastructure. In heavily populated areas, the lack of convenient parking spaces and pick-up and drop-off places for cars derange the universal adoption of carpooling services.One of the major barriers to entry for new entrants in the market is the high investment needed to develop useful technical support for ride-sharing services in mobile apps.


Resistance from Traditional Transport Services


Additionally, traditional taxi drivers in developing countries such as India are resisting ride sharing service providers as the latter offers more benefits and advanced features, such as doorstep pickup and drop-off facilities, and better convenience. However, the advanced features can pose a threat to passengers because ride-sharing apps contain detailed user information as well as the details of users' linked payment apps, creating a high risk of cybersecurity.


Impact of COVID-19 in the industry


The rapidly spreading COVID-19 pandemic is unfavorably impacting the ride-sharing market demand. Government and healthcare authorities use social distancing laws and regulations to allow residents to keep a two-meter gap from other individuals for safety. As a result, the use of ride-sharing platforms for regular travel has been limited. Owing to health and safety issues, users nowadays in their cars, thereby affecting the market size. The effect of this market problem is expected to diminish as ride-sharing firms improve their sanitization and safety initiatives.

Most of these are four-stroke cycle engines, meaning four piston strokes are required to complete a cycle. The automotive ICE segment is expected to see significant growth due to high vehicle demand over the prediction period. A surge in demand for high-performance engines with low carbon emissions is also expected to drive fuel-section production.

Global Ride Sharing Market: Regional insights
