Impact of COVID-19 –

Substantial decline in the global tourism industry due to the COVID-19 pandemic

The increase in smartphone sales is also influencing people’s preferences for on-demand transportation services.

Accordingly, the rising popularity and usage of smartphone apps and online platforms for rental services provided by ride-sharing companies, such as Uber, Lyft, and others, is driving the growth of the market.

Regional segmentation-

North America led the global market share

Comprised of 36.07% in 2021, North America led the global car rental market share. This can be attributed to the lack of flexibility in public transport routes and the shift to environmentally friendly rental vehicles, which further increases the demand for rental cars for leisure activities and business trips. In addition, the boom in tourism in North America and Europe is increasing the demand for rental services.

The introduction of a dedicated electric vehicle rental service and the entry of major players in the automotive industry are expected to grow business in the European market.

The scenario in Asia-Pacific and Latin America, on the other hand, is very different. In these regions, rising vehicle and fuel prices are increasing demand. As the majority of the region’s population has middle-class disposable income, renting a car is a popular way to meet travel needs. In addition, the Asia-Pacific market is expected to witness significant growth owing to favorable macroeconomic factors and the introduction of self-driving vehicle rental fleets by major players.

The Middle East and Africa is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to increased business and tourism in the region.
