The global ride-sharing market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 16.6% during the forecast period, from an estimated USD 85.8 billion in 2021 to USD 185.1 billion by 2026.
Increasing the daily commute of passengers for short-distance city travel, constantly increasing fuel prices, deteriorating public transport services, and growing day-to-day traffic jams in urban cities are prompting the growth of the ride-sharing market. Various ride-sharing options, such as e-hailing, carpooling, or micro-mobility services, such as bicycle/e-bike, electric mopeds, scooters, etc., support this growing market. Further, increasing internet and smartphone penetration, especially in developing nations such as China, India, Indonesia etc. at lower cost, enable easy and convenient access to these services over smart gadgets, which acts as another driving factor for the ride-sharing industry.
Navigation technology dominates the data service segment for ride-sharing
Navigation guides drivers and passengers regarding location and route. Also, mapping and traffic data provide a better user experience. Availing and maintaining these services is costly, and ride-sharing companies are working toward increasing profitability; it would be beneficial for them to develop their own services to save costs. For instance, Uber has its navigation app, called Uber Nav, built for its driver application. Uber aims to simplify the process for its drivers with its built-in GPS app. Uber Nav is compatible with any smart device that can run the Uber app. The use of navigation services is imperative for ride-sharing. Thus, the increasing number of ride-sharing service users influences the demand for navigation data services in future.

ICE vehicles dominate the market in the global ride-sharing industry
IC engine vehicles have the largest market as the ride-sharing industry is dominated by IC engine vehicles as they are cost-effective to purchase, operate, and maintain. ICE vehicles use various models such as e-hailing, car sharing, and car rental type services. In e-hailing, drivers opt for these vehicles as they can be refueled easily, and the availability of fueling stations is also abundant. Car sharing is mostly done with the owned vehicle, and most people own ICE vehicles only. Car rentals use ICE vehicles as it is majorly used for long-distance, and electric vehicles cannot provide that long-range without charging in the present scenario. However, with growing focus on carbon emissions and saving fossil fuels would prompt the growth of electric vehicles, which is speculated to reduce the share of ICE vehicles in the ride-sharing market in the coming years.
