Using automated vehicles for ride-hailing services can reduce operating costs, traffic congestion, and vehicle ownership
A new report from Guidehouse Insights examines the market for robotaxi services, with a focus on key business and social drivers, technology issues, regulatory factors, and the competitive landscape.
Robotaxi services are expected to be the next stage of ride-hailing’s evolution, bringing driverless taxi fleets that provide low-cost, on-demand mobility services to the masses. While ride-hailing has often brought ride-hailing operators into conflict with city authorities, robotaxis can appeal to cities that are actively seeking to reduce vehicle ownership and use of private transportation. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @WeAreGHInsights, China, North America, and Europe are expected to be key markets for adoption, representing more than 90% of passenger miles traveled for robotaxis during the 2020-2030 timeframe.

“These markets have established ride-hailing services and show strong demand and growing adoption of shared mobility, and they are also developing the infrastructure to support robotaxi fleets,” said Sagie Evbenata, senior research analyst with Guidehouse Insights. “Few commercial deployments are likely to be seen until 2028-2029, but this is likely to be followed by a period of extreme growth where robotaxis mainly replace human-driven ride-hailing services.”
Removing drivers from ride-hailing operations is widely seen as an opportunity for the industry to reduce operating costs and ensure profitability. According to the report, major players including Waymo, DiDi, Cruise, and Uber have placed multibillion-dollar bets on developing automated driving AD technology and piloting robotaxi services.
