Notes for us from these statistics

Of course, the ridesharing industry has seen steadfast growth since its inception. Though, it faces a lot of agony through the covid-19 pandemic.

By analyzing the current circumstance, the experts have concluded that the ridesharing industry is yet to witness its new height.
Asides from the red chart shown in the covid times, people have now completely moved to the norm. Businesses are changing, maybe evolving. And they would like to choose what's convenient for them.

At the end of 2022, the ridesharing industry valued at $96.9 billion, that's 14X growth comparing 2017. The evolution has been significant, but there is much more to witness.

Driving factors for the ridesharing business growth

The economy was worse in the past times. However, as the year passes, we are slowly mitigating the impact of covid, and the economy is slightly recovering to the normal phase - slowly starting to bloom. But still, it's trying.

By 2026, the number of users is predicted to surge by 97.2 million. So, it's obvious to expect only positive growth from this industry, and it is no wonder.

People become so cautious. Instead of owning a taxi, which costs them repairs, insurance, and maintenance. Wouldn't great for them to hire a taxi than to own it? It is an effortless option and doesn't cause them a headache.

The Internet is widely available to the public, allowing them to become acquainted with online platforms such as social media, search engines such as Google, and mobile and web apps.
