Car rental market: key segments

As for cars, the economy car is mainly used for car rental. The profitability of buying the car and the wide availability of these cars are driving the growth of the market.

By category, the airport transfer segment accounts for the highest share of the global car rental market owing to the increase in leisure and business travel among international and domestic consumers.

In terms of customers, the leisure segment is expected to hold the dominant market share during the forecast period. Most business trips are canceled or not taking place due to COVID-19 as companies have now come to the virtual platform. After conditions improved, people started taking a lot of vacations after the pandemic, which led to an increase in travel and demand for car rental services.

In terms of booking, the online segment holds the largest market share due to the growing number of mobile platforms such as Uber and Lyft. This will continue to fuel sales in this segment during the forecast period.

Based on rental duration, short-term trips hold the highest share of the market due to the increase in short-term leisure trips taken by millennials.

Based on the fare price, the economy price is preferred by consumers as it gives them the opportunity to travel more via rental cars.

Based on end use, chauffeur-driven cars have the highest market share. However, the autonomous vehicle segment is expected to grow over the forecast period owing to an increase in the adoption of services such as Zoomcar and millennials preferring to drive themselves while on vacation.

Car Rental Market: Important Regions

The global car rental market has been divided into North America (United States, Canada and Rest of North America), Europe (UK, Germany, France and Rest of Europe), Asia- Pacific (China, India, Japan and rest of Asia Pacific), Middle East and Africa (GCC, South Africa and rest of MEA) and South America (Brazil and rest of South Africa).
