Shared Mobility - Thematic Research

This report focuses on shared mobility, also known as transport as a service (TaaS). It is one of the four disruptive megatrends currently impacting the automotive industry.

This report looks at the emerging trends in Shared Mobility in the automotive sector.

Shared mobility covers several different mobility solutions, each optimized for a particular type of mobility requirement.There are four leading approaches to shared mobility - ride hailing, car sharing, carpooling and micromobility.

The latter focuses on last-mile solutions for short journeys including E-bikes and E-scooters, while the others all offer novel alternatives to private vehicle ownership.

In the wider economy, sharing is redefining ownership.As the internet becomes ingrained in everyday life, the Sharing Economy, where individuals share underutilized assets, either for free or for a fee, is becoming more prevalent.

Access to an experience, rather than ownership, is now more prized among consumers.

Ultimately, shared mobility could see a large proportion of privately owned vehicles replaced as users opt for access to a shared vehicle only when they need it, rather than leaving a private vehicle sitting idle when they don’t.

We highlight key developments within the shared mobility theme, along with its top mergers and acquisition deals, and a timeline of past and future milestones. The report also features market data and our company analysis section, looking at the most important players in the shared mobility field and their key moves in the sector.

- Shared mobility, through car sharing or ride hailing, is an attempt to readdress this requirement by reducing the number of vehicles needed to transport a given number of people. Rather than take one person from their home to their workplace and back again, a shared car can be used by someone else as soon as the first user has finished their usage. Similarly, a ride-hailed vehicle can provide many trips across a single shift, significantly increasing its economic utility and reducing the number of vehicles needed to transport those people.
- In mobility, ‘car sharing’ is often used as a catch-all term for many mobility-as-a-service or ‘shared mobility’ programs. For the purpose of this report, however, ‘car sharing’ refers specifically to services that operate fleets of cars that are shared between users such as Share Now or Zipcar.
- Ride hailing companies also run fleets of vehicles, but they function more like taxis with an employed human driver picking up and dropping off riders. The most prominent companies involved in ride hailing are Uber, Lyft and Didi Chuxing.
- Carpooling is a similar but subtly different service to car sharing. Again, facilitated by a smartphone app, users can find other people driving to the same location at similar times to themselves and agree to carpool with them. Services such as BlaBlaCar have been running for more than a decade but make up a much smaller proportion of the market compared to ride hailing.
