The meaning of mobility in the future

The Mobility Industry experiences rapid changes like few others. With the help of new technologies getting from A to B is becoming much more comfortable.

But what are the new trends ahead of us? How will the mobility industry look like in the upcoming years? These are all questions that concern cities and regions and, above all, the automotive industry. Management consultancy Roland Berger identified four megatrends in the mobility sector:

  • New mobility services
  • Autonomous driving
  • Digitization
  • Electrification

Those trends will have a significant impact on the traditional automotive industry, which will create both challenges and opportunities for the providers.

Industry experts suggest that there will be fully automated cars by 2022, which will at first primarily affect the car-sharing market. This development will be driven primarily by a young, technophile generation that attaches importance to comfortable and environmentally-friendly mobility alternatives. Not only the environment, but also people with no driving license or people with specific handicaps will benefit from this technology. By 2030, 40 percent of all passenger-kilometers will be driven by autonomous cars.

Accordingly, the passenger numbers will increase, and the number of vehicles decrease. But there is still a huge opportunity for the automotive sector: Due to the constant usage, the cars will be replaced much more frequently in the future, leading to rising sales.
