Carsharing has become increasingly popular across the world in recent years, particularly in urban areas where people can rely on efficient public transport or cycling for the majority of their daily tasks and use a car on the occasions where it is necessary, without having to invest in ownership.
According to Statista's Global Consumer Survey, carsharing services have made inroads in both India and China. When it comes to online adults, the majority of whom predominantly live in urban areas in both nations, 32 percent of people in India said they have used a carsharing service in the last 12 months in India while 17 percent have availed of one in China.
Companies offering carsharing services are also making their presence felt in Europe with 11 percent of online respondents in both Italy and Spain saying they have booked and used such a service in the last 12 months. In the United States, that figure is nine percent.
