Researchers at Extrapolate predict that the advancements in autonomous driving and connected car technologies are likely to impact the auto leasing industry. As these technologies continue to become more prevalent, leasing companies may begin offering integrated services and features that cater to the needs of tech-savvy consumers.

Regulatory developments may also play a vital role in shaping the future landscape of the auto leasing market.

Market Segmentation by Lease Type

  • Open-end
  • Close-end

Open-End Lease Segment to Exhibit Maximum Growth During Forecast Period

The auto leasing market is growing substantially, and the open-end lease segment is expected to dominate due to its popularity in enabling users to avoid vehicle depreciation risk. With each passing year, it is becoming increasingly popular for commercial transactions, allowing operators to use the vehicle as they see fit, and offer flexible mileage terms. The transparency of the financial stability of the leasing company, gauged rates for automotive leasing, and the shorter duration of open-end leases for commercial entities are all factors contributing to the growth of the open-end lease segment. The Consumer Leasing Act of 1976 regulates open-end leases, ensuring accurate disclosure of lease terms to customers, which has boosted user confidence.

Market Segmentation by Application

  • Personal
  • Commercial

Commercial Segment to Retain Largest Share of the Auto Leasing Market

In terms of application, the commercial sub-segment is projected to capture the highest revenue share owing to the rising preference for leasing commercial fleets for commuting purposes in the auto leasing market. Moreover, a survey conducted by the National Vehicle Leasing Association (NVLA) found that the commercial leasing market grew by 5.5% in 2022, reaching a total of 1.98 million leased vehicles. This growth of corporate auto leasing can be attributed to several factors, including the increasing cost of purchasing and maintaining a fleet of vehicles, the desire for companies to improve their cash flow, and the flexibility of leasing contracts.

In terms of the type of vehicles being leased, it was found that SUVs and pickup trucks were the most popular choices for commercial leasing, followed by sedans and vans. This trend can be attributed to the increasing demand for these types of vehicles in the commercial sector, as they are often utilized for transportation and delivery services. In addition to this, average lease term for commercial vehicles is usually 36 months, with an average annual mileage of 19,184 miles. This indicates that companies are preferring shorter lease terms to keep up with technological advancements and changing business needs, and they are also using the leased vehicles for high-mileage activities.
