Vehicle-sharing Technologies Market: Key Takeaways, Global, 2014

RFID technology is likely to be more prevalent in the short to medium term; however, in the medium to long term, majority of the industry will be moving toward NFC-/QR-/BLE-based technology. In the future, vehicles will be accessed through multiple channels and technologies, ranging from RFID-based smartcards to NFC-/BLE-enabled smartphones.
Almost % of the key carsharing operators (CSO‘s) in North America and Europe use opensource software and RFID-based in-car hardware solutions. Technology is yet to penetrate the emerging markets, and only about % of the CSO‘s have taken up to the technology.
Open source software solutions are flexible, customizable, and can be easily integrated with the CSO‘s existing business models when compared to the proprietary solutions. The market is likely to move toward open-source software solutions with providers like Invers and Vulog taking the lead.
In 2015, major consolidations between leading CSO‘s and technology companies (Zipcar and LocalMotion, Enterprise Holdings and Metavera) occurred. This trend will continue in the short term to allow CSO‘s achieve economies of scale and compete with OEM‘s.
