This visual report highlights the results of Euromonitor International’s 2021 Voice of the Consumer: Mobility Survey, including everyday transportation habits and attitudes of global consumers.
This report comes in PPT.
Due to the uneven pandemic recovery and a variety of economic factors, there are noticeable differences across various regions and markets when it comes to commuting habits. However, on a global level, daily commuting has decreased by 7% compared to 2020.
Commuting habits around the world are changing as consumers and economies feel the impact of COVID-19. Notable decreases in commuting are apparent in Asia Pacific markets, especially in Hong Kong where daily commutes decreased by 17% since last year.
Over 80% of global car owners have gasoline-powered automobiles in their households. Electric car ownership increased by 2% across the global respondents, mainly in Asia Pacific and Europe.
Majority of respondents who bought automobiles in the last year did so at the store or in-person. However, in 2021 consumers are slowly moving towards mobile shopping in this space, with online car sales via smartphone having increased from 16% to 26% for new and second-hand car purchases in total.
Nearly 30% of global respondents buy tickets for public transportation online at least monthly. Though this is similar to 2020 data, there was a slight increase in weekly online purchases in 2021. New York, Amsterdam and Cairo are the top three cities for daily and weekly online purchases. These commuting habits were largely influenced by the infrastructures of cities and contactless payment capabilities in urban areas.
All vehicles captured by Euromonitor's vehicle volume sales data, i.e. light vehicles -passenger cars and light commercial vehicles combined. Medium and heavy-duty trucks and buses are not covered.See All of Our Definitions
