Carsharing market is projected to reach $10,846.9 million by 2025, advancing at a CAGR of 11.0% during the forecast period, according to P&S Intelligence.
Favorable government regulations for carsharing services, growing concerns over environmental emissions, increasing demand for more convenient and cost-effective mobility solutions, and advancements in technology are the key factors driving the growth of the market.
Besides, the high upfront and maintenance costs associated with personal cars are encouraging people to switch to shared mobility services. Since owning a car demands a high investment in terms of vehicle cost, fuel cost, parking and maintenance charges, and insurance cost, people are increasingly adopting carsharing services that provide them the flexibility to rent a car, without having the need to own one. The users can make the payment on the basis of the time and distance travelled by them. Besides, additional expenses, such as costs related to fuel, maintenance, insurance, and parking, are borne by the service providers in the carsharing market.
Moreover, carsharing services are extremely convenient for daily commuters, primarily office-goers and students, as they can enjoy driving to their required destination without having the hassles of owning and maintaining their own cars. Thus, the factor of greater convenience associated with such services continues to boost their demand and impact the carsharing market positively.
