Pune, India, Feb. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to the report, Car Rental Market size is projected to grow from USD 58.34 billion in 2020 to USD 144.21 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 6.7% in the 2020-2027 period. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Increasing Population of Smartphone Users to Drive Growth

With the emergence of latest technologies, such as improved GPS tracking and high-speed internet, most players in the car rental market are offering smartphone-based applications to their customers. This strategy helps them effectively acquire new customers and retain old ones. The increasing usage of smartphones worldwide, coupled with their high penetration in developing countries owing to reducing prices is anticipated to drive the global car rental market growth.

For instance, according to a report published by the Indian Cellular and Electronics Association and KPMG, India will register around 820 million smartphone users by 2022. In addition, the increasing demand for car rentals from corporate travelers is projected to further strengthen the growth. However, increasing fuel prices and low penetration of alternative vehicles (such as EVs) may hinder the growth.
