LONDON, Sept. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Carsharing has become a major global industry. As of 2014, carshare programs were being offered on five continents, in over 30 countries, and in hundreds of cities. These cities are at the forefront of the new model of multi-modal on-demand mobility, where citizens can take advantage of a multitude of clean transportation options that meet their needs. Carsharing is one of the industries that has thrived in this new mobility landscape, and it will see continued growth in its current markets as well as expansion into new markets.
Although the carshare service model has been well established over the past 15 years, there have been some significant innovations in the market recently. The success of one-way carsharing services is prompting more companies to consider offering this service model. Such services can increase utilization since members can use one-way carsharing for shorter, spur of the moment trips. Automakers have entered this market with good results, building substantial membership levels in only a few years. Meanwhile, the adoption of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) in carsharing services is expected to increase as automakers promote this technology. According to Navigant Research, global carsharing services revenue is expected to grow from $1.1 billion in 2015 to $6.5 billion in 2024.
