The global shared mobility market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 16.48% during the forecast period to reach US$516.541 billion by 2027, from US$177.517 billion in 2020. Shared Mobility services are comprised of the rental and sharing of various vehicles, including scooters, motorcycles, cars, and many others. The steady growth in the segment can be attributed to the rising internet and mobile app market, cost-effectivity, zero maintenance costs, and ease of service. Rising fuel costs and pollution are a few of the major factors causing consumers to shift to hiring and sharing automobiles. Furthermore, increasing business and leisure trips across the world are also expected to augment the market size in the forecasted period.
Rising fuel prices, maintenance costs, congestion in traffic, and lack of parking spaces enable consumers to find a better alternative in the shared mobility services market, augmenting the market growth.
The increasing cons of automobile ownership owing to uncertainties such as rising fuel prices and traffic congestion are propelling the demand for the shared mobility market for its appealing attributes, including autonomy, low cost, ease, and flexibility. To meet this gradual paradigm shift and consumer demands, many key players are deploying strategic investments and partnerships, accelerating market growth. The Yamaha Motor is the best example of this. In February 2022, Yamaha Motor's shared mobility firm, 'MBSI' (Moto Business Services India), entered the Indian two-wheeler services market as it invested an undisclosed amount in Royal Brothers, a bike rental company. The firm aims to partner with several more mobility corporations while transforming India's shared mobility landscape by integrating its strategic and financial experiences. As an extension to their strategic plans, further, in March 2022, MBSI entered into the 4-wheeler electric vehicle segment upon its collaboration with Malbork Technologies, a sustainable energy-powered vehicle service company. MBSI's strategy is backed by its belief in having the Indian market show clear growth indicators and a crucial prospective market of 1.4 billion Indians.
The emerging and rapidly growing shared mobility firms are also expected to drive the market growth onward. For instance, in October 2021, Cogo, a Copenhagen-based shared mobile aggregator launched in 2019, raised over €1 million from prominent business angels and PreSeed Ventures with the objective of addressing the challenges of transparency and infrastructure while maximizing the benefits to be offered by shared transportation services. Furthermore, in February 2022, Cogo acquired eScoot, a Central European-based renowned shared mobility aggregator. Through this acquisition, the company aimed to strengthen its position and offer enhanced eco-friendly and shared mobility services for consumers. Moreover, the company considers this strategic acquisition as a boost to its expansion goals in France, the UK, and Germany while increasing its presence in the Nordics and Southern Europe. Also, in March 2019, Vulog, a technological platform for free-floating, peer-to-peer car sharing, round-trip, ride-hailing, and hybrid services, teamed up with Segway to speed up the development of shared micro-mobility services. With this collaboration, new entrants and existing mobile operators can operate large-scaled, profitable, shared, kick-scooter services more easily and quickly, thanks to a deep interface between Vulog's AiMA platform and new Segway sharing-ready scooters. Another example of strategic acquisition and partnership is the Dubai-based Swvl. In April 2022, as a part of its global expansion, this shared mobility services firm signed a definitive deal to take over Zeelo, a UK-based smart bus platform and technology start-up. This agreement is expected to extend the former's market presence across 21 countries while boosting its sustainable business model. The two firms aim to provide safe, affordable, and eco-friendly transportation to their consumers.
Furthermore, the rapid penetration of smartphones, the emergence of innovative technologies into the market, and multiple initiatives deployed by the government are also adding impetus to the market growth of the shared mobility market.
Exploiting the emerging technological advancements in technology, GPS, and app solutions, many key players, such as Ola, Uber, and Sixt, are providing their services via mobile apps to customers. The emergence of electric cars and its swift penetration into the automobile industry and the shared mobility service industry owing to its appealing eco-friendly advantages is considered another growth factor.
At the same time, the initiatives taken by the various governments in multiple regions in the automobile industry for the betterment of society, too, are propelling the market onward. The £ 3.4 million worth of six-month pilot projects initiated by the government in Nottingham City in January 2020 for electric taxis is the best example of this growth factor. The Nottingham City Council aims to promote cleaner cabs in the city and reach its goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2028 through this initiative. Several such developments and strategies are expected to increase the size of the shared mobility market during the forecast period.
COVID-19 has negatively affected the shared mobility market. The lockdown and the deployment of work-from-home strategy by the companies during the pandemic have decreased the sales of the shared mobility market. Additionally, the customers’ apprehension of travelling in closed vehicles has further slowed the market.
