The world is experiencing the largest wave of urban growth as over 50% of the world's population lives in cities. This explosive population increase in cities and urban sprawl poses various challenges and opportunities in the way people move around for social and business needs.

While cities of developing economies become the largest markets for existing personal mobility technologies, their developed counterparts witness a transformation in the personal mobility space to cope with the series of sustainable measures prioritized by these governments.  These American megacities create a world of opportunity for alternative and new modes of transport.

As a result, the personal mobility sector is under pressure to reinvent itself to attractive and sustainable forms to maintain demand for their technology and products.

Highlights of the briefing include analyses of the following:

  • Spatial expansion of cities and the resultant change in mobility patterns
  • Introduction of newer modes of commuting and the move towards eco friendly transportation
  • Integrated mobility and regulations impacting vehicular movement
  • Examples of smart city and their mobility concepts

This briefing will benefit automotive OEMs, system suppliers, city planners, fleet operators, car rental agencies, logistics service providers, and car sharing companies.

"U.S. personal mobility providers will learn from the transition and gain sustainable solutions that are not just product based, but also technology enabled service solutions," states Singh.  "While the product side witnesses the introduction of small fuel efficient cars, besides hybrid and electric vehicle platforms to fight congestion and pollution levels, vehicle manufacturers also expect to venture into on-demand personal mobility solutions and services such as car sharing."
