SHANGHAI (8 January 2018) –AlixPartners’ Global Shared Mobility Consumer Survey has found that shared mobility services are growing in every market surveyed around the world including China, US, UK, France, Germany, Italy and Japan, with ride hailing proving especially popular, and growing faster.
The survey results offer important insights into the role that shared mobility will play in how people get around, especially those living in urban areas, how they view car ownership and the use of “robotaxis,” and how shared mobility companies can promote the growth of their services.
Among the survey’s key findings:
Qian Xu, Greater China head of automotive practice, said: “Though public transportation and private vehicles remain the leading transportation modes in mega cities in China, shared mobility is already transforming how urban residents move around their cities. We expect that it will have a growing impact on car ownership rates. It is too early to tell who will win the race to capture the most value in the mobility market of the future. But the shared services companies are proving that they have a real head start. We expect the regulatory environment will also shape how the car sharing and ride hailing will further develop in China.”
