One of the biggest challenges for the ride sharing market is the issue of profitability and developing a sustainable business model.

The intensity of competitive rivalry among taxi aggregators in the ride sharing market is high. As a result, ride sharing providers are grabbing each other’s market share. The ride sharing market comprises established players such as Uber, Didi, and Lyft among others. The nature of the existing business environment is an oligopolistic market structure. However, the increasing number of new entrants in this high growth market is making it more competitive. The growth rate of ride sharing is high, but the low loyalty adherence of drivers and passengers is a cause of concern for the market players. The driver’s share in the ride cost is very high. Still, the drivers continue to demand more share in the ride cost. If the ride sharing companies agree to pay more, the companies will see more losses. Drivers work with multiple platforms for earnings, while passengers tend to use multiple mobility service providers. Capital requirement in ride sharing market is high owing to driver pay-outs, marketing cost, and ride subsidies for new customer acquisition and retention. Additionally, global expansion requires both subsidizing rides and competitive pricing to tackle competitors. This has resulted in huge losses for the market players. For instance, Uber suffered losses worth USD 4.5 billion in 2017 globally.

The current ride sharing market is dominated by established players such as Uber, Ola, Didi, and Lyft. The key market players such as Didi have gained a substantial market share by focusing on high-growth markets such as China. On the other hand, Uber, after selling its China operations to Didi, is focusing on fast-growing taxi markets such as India. The ride sharing industry has low entry barriers. New entrants can offer more subsidies and customers have no switching cost. These factors make it difficult for ride sharing companies to develop a proper sustainable model. Hence, it will be difficult for ride sharing service providers to sustain in the market without a sustainable business model, which could improve their profitability.
