Forecast Summary

The ride sharing market will be worth $937 billion by 2026, up from $147 billion in 2021; representing total growth of 537% over the next five years.
  • Consumers in the US and China will lead global spend on ride sharing services; accounting for 65% of market value in 2026. Future government initiatives to reduce private vehicle usage in cities, allied with a strong pandemic recovery, will be key to these countries’ positions as leaders.
  • Only 13% of consumers are set to use carpool-style ride sharing services in 2026, with the remainder opting for single-occupancy services; reflecting that the majority of consumers are willing to pay a premium for the privilege of travelling alone.
  • While this is understandable given the ongoing pandemic, the emissions generated by single-occupancy services mean that platforms must explore non-financial incentives to drive adoption of carpool services. This could include collaborating with city authorities to allow carpool vehicles to use public transport-only lanes, to make these services attractive in terms of both cost and efficiency.
  • There are multiple strategies that ride sharing platforms must leverage to drive adoption of carpool services, but these will need to be implemented carefully to avoid the perception of prioritising carpool users over non-carpool ones. If implemented poorly, this will generate a negative reaction from users and lead to increasing competing services.
