Carsharing Programs

Carsharing Membership and Vehicle Fleets, Personal Vehicle Reduction, and
Revenue from Carsharing Services: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

The carsharing industry has grown dramatically from 2008 to 2013, as this model for shared personal transport is seen as a potential solution to the problem of global gridlock. Equally important, carsharing services offer city residents an alternative to the increasing costs of personal vehicle ownership. City dwellers face rising levels of congestion as the number of vehicles surges from 1 billion in 2011 to 2 billion around the end of the decade and 3 billion plus over the course of this century. Policymakers, urban planners, car companies, and entrepreneurs are united in finding a solution to ease traffic congestion and the associated issues.

The advent of mobile apps and vehicle connectivity is driving growth in carsharing services, as well. Business models are proliferating and include university carsharing fleets, automotive OEM-run services, peer-to-peer carsharing, and one-way carsharing. The industry is also undergoing a period of consolidation and buy-out, with conventional car rental companies taking a share of the market. Nevertheless, continued growth is not a given; the carsharing business is struggling to reach profitability even as membership increases.
