Publish Date: May 2019 | Category: Automotive & Transportation | Publisher: BCC Research | Status: Publish

Report Scope:

Car rental includes four main categories: compact, executives, SUV and hybrid/electric. Compact cars are small, low cost vehicles that carry a small number of passengers. Executive models are plusher and carry more individuals. Individuals offer renters a mix of comfort and size. Hybrid/electric vehicles do not run solely on gasoline.

Summary

Daily headlines tout digital disruption, the ability of new technology to impact many businesses, accelerating development cycles, increasing efficiency and providing more service opportunities. The traditional rental car market is entering a new era. The tried-and-true business models developed in the past 100 years are under siege. New technology and the growing sharing economy have enabled suppliers to build up new business and distribution models.

The change can impact a vendor in many ways. Traditionally, vendors have competed in areas like type of vehicle and price. They have offered high cost, luxury rentals, which appealed to individuals with the disposable income to afford them.

Market changes have presented suppliers with new challenges. The traditional boundaries are blurring, and suppliers must determine their business focuses. The success of Uber illustrates the potential impact on car renters today. Traditional auto renters must figure out their value-add and role in this rapidly changing marketplace. Information technology has also been in a period of profound change. Cloud computing is becoming the new data center, with central resources no longer always located on the customer’s site, but instead located in the company’s data center. Mobility makes it easier for customers to book reservations. A rental market with high demands and significant competitive
pressures is rapidly emerging. Not all will prove viable. Success is not guaranteed.

An ever-increasing number of companies—both startups and established enterprises—are focusing on the subject of mobility and often with it they pair electric vehicles. The market is emerging, evolving, and fraught with challenges, such as charging these vehicles. New, innovative approaches and new concepts are developing. Each of these ideas need a testing ground to be tried, improved and developed for everyday use. Meanwhile, car renters need to maintain their existing business—and its revenue streams. Consequently, they are moving in many directions, some of which seem contradictory. What the market looks like in a decade will be significantly different from how it appears today.
