The COVID-19 pandemic hurt mobility as a Service Market. With the lockdown and social distancing norms implemented worldwide, the need for mobility was reduced except for emergency purposes. With almost zero public movements, the major business area of the market was severely hit, and the economy took a nosedive.

Over the medium term, Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is a growing industry that intends to provide individuals and businesses with integrated, on-demand transportation solutions. It represents a paradigm shift from traditional modes of transportation, in which consumers can access a variety of mobility alternatives through a single platform, frequently via a subscription-based approach. The market is predicted to expand rapidly in the next years, owing to rising urbanization, increased traffic congestion, and a need for more sustainable transportation alternatives.

Passengers' preferences for utilizing taxi services and ride-sharing services across the country are expected to increase. Hence, this is likely to lead the companies to enhance the options and expand their operations to be provided in mobile applications, to retain their respective market shares in a highly competitive market.

The growing emphasis on lowering carbon emissions and mitigating climate change is one of the primary drivers of the MaaS sector. MaaS platforms may help lessen the environmental effect of transportation by providing more sustainable mobility options.

Another important aspect driving the market is changing consumer tastes, particularly among younger generations that prioritize convenience, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness in their mobility options.

Other players, such as automakers and public transportation agencies, are entering the MaaS sector to stay competitive and meet evolving customer expectations, in addition to traditional transportation corporations and tech startups.

Government initiatives and legislation, such as subsidies for electric vehicles and encouragement for carpooling and public transit use, are also shaping the MaaS market. Mobile apps, Internet of Things (IoT) gadgets, and data analytics tools are a few of the primary technologies powering the MaaS sector. These technologies enable more effective and individualized transportation services.

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) Market Trends

Increasing Traffic Congestion Drive the Demand in the Market

MaaS can assist in improving air quality, lower carbon emissions, and encouraging sustainable transportation in addition to easing congestion. MaaS can encourage individuals to select more environmentally friendly forms of transportation, like biking or taking public transportation, by providing a variety of mobility options.

While governments look for ways to incorporate MaaS into their transportation networks, private companies are increasing their investments in MaaS platforms and services.

Overall, the difficulties caused by traffic congestion in major cities throughout the world are a contributing factor in the expansion of the MaaS sector. MaaS is positioned to play an increasingly significant role in the future of urban mobility as people look for more effective and environmentally friendly transportation solutions.

In recent years, many cities around the world have been adopting mobility as a service (MaaS) as a solution to the growing traffic congestion and transportation challenges. For instance,
  • In January 2023, The Mobility Department of the City of Tampa launched a Mobility as a Service (MaaS) trial project with the City's new mobility partner, Moovit. Moovit debuted in Tampa as an urban mobility software that assists users in planning multimodal trips, whether they want to walk, bike, scoot, drive, ride the streetcar, or take the bus. In addition to delivering precise and reliable urban mobility information, Moovit offers mobile ticketing for public transportation, real-time arrival information, and displays parking lots and park-and-ride locations, unlike Google Maps or Waze.
  • In October 2022, Shanghai inaugurated an all-in-one mobile platform for green commuting, marking an important step forward in the development of the city's Mobility as a Service (MaaS) system. The Suishenxing app, the world's first metropolitan MaaS platform established by a government, has completed its fundamental features, which include public transportation, taxi hailing, and smart parking. Users can get a swipe-for-all pass that contains all public transportation codes through its public transportation service. After registering and activating the payment feature on MaaS, it can now be used on Shanghai's 1,560 bus routes, 17 ferry lines, and 11 Metro lines.
  • In September 2022, the City of Prague tested a pilot program to consolidate all payment methods and transit services in one location. A system for unified registration and payment for mobility services, such as bike and carsharing, taxis, parking, and public transportation, will be developed, tested, and operated via the Ltaka app, which is being implemented by Prague's municipal firm Operátor ICT.
These instances show how MaaS is becoming more and more popular among cities as they work to ease traffic congestion and increase accessibility to transportation. It is anticipated that more cities using MaaS solutions to solve their transportation problems as the MaaS business expands globally.

Asia-Pacific is the Fastest Growing Market

Urbanization, population growth, and increasing demand for convenient and sustainable modes of transportation are likely to enable the mobility-as-a-service market in China over the long run. In recent years, new mobility represented by emerging bike-sharing and car-hailing/sharing has provided great convenience for citizens' daily transport. By meeting large mobility demands, they also brought pressures and challenges to city management. In addition, they had a big impact on existing public transport systems and traditional transport services.

China has focused on testing and developing MaaS projects in recent years. Many government departments, such as the State Council, Ministry of Transport, and province and city governments (Beijing, Shanghai, Jiangsu, and Guangdong), have highlighted to develop of a MaaS strategy or pilot in their 14th-Five-Year Plan between (2021-2025) or even in their long-term plan for 2035.

India is the second-most populous country in the world, and most people fall into the middle-class category who utilize cabs and auto-rickshaws (local three-wheeler taxis) for commuting short distances. India's public transportation system is not that well developed and is mainly characterized by buses, local trains (only in Mumbai), and metros (in select cities). Thus, employees majorly use their personal vehicle as the main mode of transportation to work.

MaaS is still relatively new in India, but discussions and policy initiatives by the federal, state, and local governments have highlighted its enormous potential. MaaS would offer consumers across India the ability to effortlessly organize trips in a flexible and personalized way by integrating transportation into a single service. Further, India is utilizing its technology prowess and integrated mobility services solutions, and it is already growing into a sizable sector.

Due to the outpouring opportunities in the Indian market, many prominent companies have also taken severe initiatives to strengthen their position in the Maas market. For instance,
  • In January 2023, ride-hailing company Uber plans to introduce 25,000 electric cars in India over the next three years through its platform. A memorandum of understanding signed with Tata Motors envisages the phased delivery of 25,000 units of Tata's Xpres-T EV electric car from this month. Electric vehicles will be deployed in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, and Ahmedabad.
  • In November 2022, an all-in-one mobile platform for green commuting in Shanghai was launched, marking an essential step forward for Shanghai's Mobility as a Service (MaaS) system.
  • In October 2021, Honda launched Ashirase, a wearable device that helps visually impaired individuals navigate their surroundings using vibrations and audio guidance. The device is part of Honda's efforts to expand mobility services beyond traditional vehicles.
The above developments indicate that the MaaS market in the region is growing rapidly, with several players entering the market and expanding their services. These developments are expected to contribute to MaaS growth in the coming years.
