Carsharing is when individuals share vehicles to commute short distances. This approach is very convenient, flexible, and helps reduce the number of vehicles on the road, kilometers driven, & overall car ownership costs, thereby obtaining several sustainable environmental goals. With the swiftly rising awareness regarding cost efficient & convenient mobility among people, the adoption of carsharing services is increasing rapidly across Latin America.
The Latin America Carsharing Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 26.02% during the forecast period, i.e., 2021-26.

Impact of Covid-19 on the Latin America Carsharing Market
The Covid-19 pandemic had a decelerating effect on most industries in 2020, where the Latin America Car-sharing Market was no exception. While the government of the regional countries imposed stringent movement restrictions & lockdowns, the demand for carsharing services fell drastically.
Besides, even when the pandemic situation seemed to improve, the governments uplifted the restrictions, yet people were afraid of sharing cars with others. In fact, the stringent norms of maintaining social distance further restrained the public from using shared vehicles.
Consequently, the overall market underwent a significant decline & massive financial losses amidst the crisis. However, with the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines, the public confidence in shared traveling increased in compliance with stringent safety measures & guidelines, which, in turn, is enabling the market to regain its usual pace in the coming years.
