“Conventional business models have multiple stages before vehicles reach consumers, resulting in end customers receiving incorrect, inaccurate, or incomplete information,” said Thanigesh Arumugam Parthasarathi, Mobility Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “The PBV market, on the other hand, offers optimization feasibility and enables customers to co-create vehicles with OEMs according to their requirements.”
Parthasarathi added: “The rise in the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) drives shared service providers and OEMs to develop electric-driven PBVs. Further, the modular EV skateboard and electrical/electronic architectures followed by many PBV makers will enable new technological developments in vehicle design.”
Customers’ increasing preference for PBVs presents growth prospects for market participants in different areas, including:
Disrupting the cargo delivery vehicle market: Logistics companies can commission PBVs to achieve maximum cargo space and reduce the fleet number and operational costs incurred by each fleet.
Facilitating the advent of autonomous shuttles and robotaxis: Companies developing purpose-built shuttle services can consider optimizing the vehicle design to convert the same vehicle to autonomous shuttles and robotaxis in the future.
Creating opportunities for start-ups: Automotive start-ups can leverage the PBV market to offer fresh concepts and create technologically updated vehicles for ride share and ride-hailing services.
