opportunities in future of mobility to 2030

From electric vehicles and mobility-as-a-service to logistics automation and public transportation, mobility is changing. Driven by technological innovations and emerging business models, we expect to see further opportunities in the future of mobility.

Five promising use cases in

Future mobility

  1. Blockchain technology for optimisation of complex transportation operations and supply chain tracking.
  2. 5G cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) and computer vision sensors for digital city sensing systems to monitor traffic, weather, and road integrity management.
  3. Neural network technology (deep learning) for automated recognition and classification of features within video and static images.
  4. Single-chip compact solid-state LiDAR beam scanner for real-time detection with a 10 m range.
  5. Electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicles for quiet electric aerial ridesharing at zero operating emissions.

What are trends in the future of mobility?

Developments in the future of mobility sector are being propelled by new business models and innovations. Combining emerging business models and technologies such as IoT with the transportation sector is generating new opportunities in the future of mobility. Innovations in the future of mobility sector include advanced batteries and self-driving systems. The core trends influencing the future of mobility are automation and new business models. The confluence of 5G communication, IoT, and innovation in business models is giving rise to new mobility-as-a-service business models.

Use Case

Which companies are leading the way in future mobility?

Some of the biggest gains are in the related area of logistics automation, where it has been trialled at mines and warehouses. Since 2000, Prologis, REIT, Amazon, GXO Logistics have invested heavily in robotisation and warehouse automation, using automatic sortation systems, conveyors, shuttle systems, robotic arms and scanners. Implementing these systems provides flexibility, time and cost savings.

Projected annual growth rate of the electric vehicle market to 2030

What are the opportunities in future of mobility?

Growth is predicted across sectors relating to the future of mobility, including the public transportation sector, the global automotive logistics market, the electric vehicle market, and the mobility-as-a-service market. The most significant growth is predicted in the  mobility-as-a-service sector, however, which is projected to grow annually at a rate of 32.1% until 2030. Opportunities in mobility-as-a-service include electrifying city communication and product-service mobility and logistics systems. While transportation and ride hailing companies Uber, Lyft, ZipCar and Lime have also moved into the mobility-as-a-service space.
