Car-as-a-service Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a negative impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The wide range of vehicles with single subscription packages is notably driving the global market growth, although factors such as the availability of automotive financing may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the global car-as-a-service industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Market Driver

The wide range of vehicles with a single subscription package is one of the key factors driving the growth of the global car-as-a-service market. By availing the service, users can flip between different cars under a single subscription or rental plan. Every subscription plan has its own terms and conditions. Some plans include long-time rentals that allow users to switch cars on a daily, monthly, or weekly basis. Some plans are similar to leasing but for a shorter duration, while some plans are particularly targeted to the luxury car segment, where convenience and comfort are of paramount importance. Various OEMs and third-party dealers have various subscription plans and offer different types of cars within the subscription plan. For instance, Access by BMW provides a variety of BMW performance vehicles such as X5, 5 Series, and M5 depending on the subscription availed. Similarly, Porsche Passport offers various cars like Boxster, Cayman, Macan, and Panamera based on the subscription plan availed by the customer. Unlike leasing services, customers availing of car subscription services can switch to different cars without any long-term commitment.

Key Market Trend

The increasing investment in autonomous taxis will fuel global market growth. Technologies such as the Internet of Things enable autonomous vehicles to communicate with the other cars on the road, drivers, and roadside infrastructure. This technology is developed to improve the safety of the vehicle and commute times, as well as efficiency. Robo-taxi or a driverless taxi is an autonomous car offered by ride-hailing service providers. It eliminates the need for a human chauffeur, thus helping service providers in reducing operating costs. With the increased benefits of autonomous taxis, various vendors are investing in this technology to gain a first-mover advantage. For instance, in August 2020, Autonomous vehicle startup, AutoX announced the launch of its self-driving taxi in Shanghai. The Robo Taxi, AutoX's offering is highly in competition with Didi, China's largest ride-hailing platform, which launched its own Robo-taxi pilot program in Shanghai in June 2020. However, these taxis are also expected to manage traffic and enable seamless mobility. Thus, with the increasing investment in Robo-taxi, the global CaaS market is expected to grow during the forecast period.

Key Market Challenge

The availability of automotive financing is a major challenge for the global market growth. Automotive financing allows customers to buy a car for personal use by borrowing money from banks, credit unions, or captive automotive finance companies. With the growing demand for vehicles among individuals, various automotive finance companies are planning to make automotive financing more accessible and efficient for customers. As consumers are rapidly moving toward digitization, many automotive financial service providers and dealers offer online solutions for automotive financing. For instance, in March 2017, Carro, an online auto dealer, launched an automotive financing arm named Genie Financial Services, which offers speedy approvals for auto loans. Similarly, in June 2018, CIMB Bank Bhd and CIMB Islamic Bank Bhd launched Insta Approval, a digital platform that facilitates easy automotive financing process that helps in getting the approval for automotive financing within one minute after the submission of the requisite information and documents. This 1-Minute Auto Financing Insta Approval by CIMB helps reduce the waiting time of customers. Such automotive financing encourages individual customers to buy a new vehicle for personal use, thereby hindering the growth of the market.

COVID Impact and Recovery Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the growth of the CaaS market in the region in 2020.
