Original date of publication: July 6, 2020

Kemwel - Despite COVID-19 disruptions, the market outlook for global car rentals appears sunny with an anticipated 11.6% CAGR (compound annual growth rate) from 2015 until 2022, according to Car Rental Market by Application, Rental Category and Vehicle Type and Multi Utility Vehicle: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020-2027. As reported by Globe News Wire, the value of the sector will allegedly increase from about US$79.65 million in 2015 to US$164.34 million by 2022.

Similarly, the same source asserts that majority of the action takes place in North American markets with over half of the shares. Factors ranging from low rates of car ownership among young people and the influx of on-demand transport services such as car rentals can be attributed to this forecast. By the end of 2022, other experts claim that luxury car rentals will be among the most trending vehicles with a projected value of US$22.5 billion and a 14.5% CAGR.
