Key findings

Shared mobility market is maturing

The shared mobility market is growing and is expected to continue rising over the forecast period, pushed by the need for on-demand transport. Yet the industry is projected to record single-digit growth by 2024 as the industry matures. This could push more mergers and acquisitions activities to boost growth opportunities.

China and the US lead

Both China and the US are the key global markets for shared mobility. Together, the two accounted for 56% of global shared mobility gross bookings in 2021. Ride hailing is the most popular shared mobility mode in the two countries, accounting for 87.6% and 77.0%, respectively.

Southeast Asian economies are key growth markets

Southeast Asian economies such as Indonesia and Thailand are anticipated to lead the growth in shared mobility bookings over 2021-2026. Rising disposable incomes, growing use of smartphones, coupled with poor public transport provision are some of the factors raising demand.

Didi Chuxing and Uber are the leaders

China’s Didi Chuxing and the US’s Uber are the leading shared mobility companies focused on ride hailing. They accounted for 40% of global shared mobility gross bookings in 2021. However, they are being challenged by regulations and growing competition which has seen their market share drop in 2021 compared with 2016. 

Micro-mobility is growing in importance

Micro-mobility is expected to account for a greater proportion of shared mobility gross bookings in the future as the shift away from private passenger car travel continues. This will be influenced by improving infrastructure and rising urbanisation.
