South Africa Cab Aggregator Market Segmentation

By Region

In 2018, Northern South Africa had the largest share in the cab aggregator market in terms of revenue followed by Southern South Africa, Eastern South Africa and Western South Africa. The major markets in Northern region in South Africa for online cab aggregators are Johannesburg and Pretoria. This is majorly due to the large populations in these cities.

Growth Drivers

The roll-out programme for eVisas in South Africa along with the low exchange rate for rand is expected to make South Africa a thriving tourist destination for foreign travelers in the future, thus expanding the car rental industry too.

The country’s population, number of smart phone users and internet usage penetration are on a constant rise. All these factors are expected to improve demand for app based taxi. The need to integrate Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems better with other public transport systems, including municipal buses, minibus-taxis, metered taxis and e-hail services presents a huge growth opportunity for the car rental and taxi industry in the country as it would help to greatly expand the number of people benefiting from investment in public transport.

Issues and Challenges

The high prices of vehicle installments, vehicle parts and maintenance costs have cut the profit margins for the taxi operators and made it difficult to sustain business especially as they get no operational subsidy from government.

High competition among existing companies has cut the margins to below sustainable level. Metered taxi drivers face fierce competition from e-hailing taxi services which are severely affecting the formers business due to the low prices they offer. High cost of fuel and its continuous escalating price is a key issue for the car rental business and has passed on to the commuters in the form of high prices. Both driver and rider safety are major concerns in South Africa and illegal operators in the industry have contributed to violence in the industry.
