There were more than 0.7 million members in Europe alone who adopted carsharing as a sustainable transport solution for daily travelling at the end of 2011. Car OEMs as well as transport operators have started to get active in this market, increasing competition for already existing market players.

Participating in this web conference will benefit carsharing operators, automotive OEMs and transport operators by comprehending the competitive landscape while eyeing market expansion. New market participants will understand growth potentials while preparing their market entry.

Conglomerate group companies like parking space management operators, electric vehicle recharge infrastructure providers and alike are invited to attend this web conference to understand how they can benefit from integrating carsharing services into their offerings.

"Traditional carsharing in Europe is expected to grow at a healthy 40 per cent CAGR from now to nearly 15 million members by 2020," says Mr. Shankar. "While more than 200 traditional carsharing operators are key to the expansion of the market, focused entry and expansion by various transport operators and vehicle OEMs in specified European markets is important for an accelerated growth. Emerging new business models like one-way, flexible (station-less) as well as pay-per-use carsharing is expected to attract a value for many", he concludes.
