Online Booking is projected as the most lucrative segments

Rise in demand for carpool and bike pool services

Significant rise in the preference for carpool and bike pool services among the regular office commuters is the primary factor contributing toward the growth of the ride sharing services. In addition, increase in the services offered by the leading market players, including Uber, and Ola, and the option to choose convenient pick-up and drop locations is encouraging the consumers to opt for ride sharing services. Moreover, significant rise in the number of multiple ride-sharing services such as intercity ride sharing, bus sharing, bike sharing and auto sharing services even for short distance travel fuels the growth of the ride sharing demand. Furthermore, the ride sharing service providers are offering advantages such as affordable pick-up and drop, co-passenger information, economical rides fares and higher convenience as compared to the traditional transport service providers. In addition, several service providers offer various facilities, offers, and discounts such as monthly pass on shared ride to reduce the expenses of daily commuters. Thus, the rise in demand for carpool and bike pool services collectively drives the growth of the ride sharing market.

Increase in cost of vehicle ownership

There is an increase in the cost of owning a personal vehicle owing to the rise in fuel prices and increase in financing, insurance, and car registration rates. Maintenance expenses, including replacement of parts & components and labour fees, have also increased. This in turn contributes toward the total cost of ownership. Furthermore, with the introduction of strict emission norms, vehicles need better, advanced, and costly after treatment devices. These factors are collectively increasing vehicle ownership cost. Daily commuters especially office commuters prefer ride sharing services, which in turn, is anticipated to propel the growth of the ride sharing market.

Intercity is projected as the most lucrative segments

Resistance from the local transport services coupled with varying government regulations in different countries

The increase in demand for ride sharing services across the globe is creating conflicts and disagreements from the traditional taxi drivers. The ride service providers are offering more advantages such as affordable pick-up & drop, complete ride details, and higher convenience as compared to the traditional transport service providers. Therefore, the local taxi driver in countries such as Japan and India are opposing the ride service providers. In addition, ride sharing services are required to obtain separate licenses and registration in most of the countries across the world. This makes it difficult for app-based services to operate as many app-based companies do not own the vehicles. Moreover, stringent government norms on the cabs especially in countries such as South Korea and Vietnam further hinder the market growth. For instance, in 2018, the Department of Transportation (DoT) in Vietnam decided to stop licensing operators under a pilot program, as the app-based taxi services have been putting pressure on local traffic infrastructure and create unhealthy competition with the traditional taxi and transportation firms.

Development of Robo-taxies

A robo-taxi is a self-driving taxi and autonomous vehicle that is operated by shared and on-demand mobility services. The emergence of robo-taxis is driven by its benefits, such as improving fleet management and reducing the cost of ownership. In addition, significant development in the field of autonomous vehicles, which focuses on the reduction of road accidents, energy consumption, vehicle emission, and traffic congestion is anticipated to drive the adoption of robo-taxis. Several leading services provides and automakers are already planning to introduce autonomous vehicles for ride sharing in their respective countries.

Motorcycles is projected as the most lucrative segments

For instance, in July 2018, Didi Chuxing launched a test robotaxi service in a limited area in Shanghai. Also, in January 2020, General Motors' self-driving car unit, Cruise, unveiled driverless vehicle for ride-sharing service in the U.S. Moreover, increase in urbanization, development of smart cities, and significant emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) connected cars are some of the factors that are expected to leverage the growth of the autonomous ride sharing market. Furthermore, manufacturers of robo-taxis are entering into a partnership with taxi fleet operators to design, develop, and introduce robo-taxi services. For instance, in June 2019, Uber announced a third-generation version of self-driving electric robo-taxi, developed in partnership with Volvo. Therefore, the development of robo-taxis offering future growth opportunities for the ride sharing market. 

Covid-19 Scenario Analysis 

In most of the countries across the world, shops and businesses have shuttered and offices have emptied out, and this has resulted in decrease in demand for taxi or cab services, which in turns, for ride sharing services. 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. However, major ride-sharing companies such as Ola, Uber, Grab, Didi, Lyft, and others are already feeling the pressure from the coronavirus pandemic as travel restrictions and lockdowns are increasing across the world. For instance, Lyft experienced a decrease in revenue by 36% year-on-year. In addition, according to the Canaccord Genuity pricing tracker, ride-share fares dropped by 6% month-over-month in 2020.
