Some data about the Mobility Industry
Mobility sector is conformed by 4 main sectors (in terms of annual turnover) and a fith sector which groups other transport segments.
- Automotive: We can find the 40% of companies in the industry. They generate 79% of infustry turnover and the 48% of employment
- Railway: 29% of companies employs the 30% of total workers in the industry, with only a 13% of turnover
- Micro-mobility (5% of companies – 1% of turnover)
- Motorcycles (4% of companies – 1% of turnover)
- Others (which includes bus,naval and aeronautics) groups a 29% of companies generating the 6% of industry turnover and employs the 18%.
If we look closer to the type of companies, we can see that manufacturers and distributors are a big 65% of the industry. In the 3r position we can find operators, followed by mobility services and infraestructures.
Sustainable Mobility Drivers
Sustainability & Climate Change
Climate change is present in our daily lives, and we are increasingly aware of the costs of pollution.
In Asia, we find that China, some Persian Gulf countries and India are investing in clean energy at great speeds. The US is transitioning away from coal and is innovating a wide range of clean technologies, such as batteries, new methods of carbon capture and electric vehicles. Europe, including the UK, is united in its mission to tackle climate change and is driving the European Green Deal, which aims to reduce 90% of transport emissions by 2050.
Increses on energy costs
Increases in the cost of energy pose a major threat to the transport industries. To address this situation, we must encourage the promotion of more sustainable transport, the renewal of vehicle fleets for more efficient ones and awareness of the rational use of means of transport.
Mobility must also be understood from a gender perspective, as not all people move in the same way.. In addressing sustainable mobility challenges, we must include gender perspectives in the elaboration and evaluation of urban mobility policies and plans and improve preventive action against gender discrimination. Not only that, we must keep in mind that equality is not equity and ensure a fair access for all, based on their needs.
Increased life expectancy, reduced fertility and higher levels of education. education levels are changing global demographics, affecting the structure of the world economy: an ageing world population could have a major impact on developed and emerging economies. a major impact on developed and emerging economies. With an average age of 44, Europe will be the “oldest ageing” region, more than double the average age of 21 in sub-Saharan Africa. average age of 21 years in sub-Saharan Africa. People over 65 will account for nearly 23% of the EU population by 2023, an increase of more than 8 percentage points in just 15 years.
Habit changes in the population towards healthier lifestyles, such as keeping active, are also leading to changes in transport use.
About the future of mobility…
European Commission’s policies fit for reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030
One third of the 1.8 trillion Euro investments from the NextGenerationEu Recovery Plan, and the EU’s seven-year budget will finance the European Green Deal
2022, transport emissions represent around 25% of the EU’s total greenhouse gas emissions, and these emissions have increased over recent years.
