Based on the Provider Type Insights, the market is segmented into Banks, OEMs, Other Financial Institutions.

  • The banks segment led the market and accounted for more than 57.0% share of the global revenue in 2021. The banks segment growth can be attributed to the fast-processing features with the necessity for least documentation, in addition to the high-reliability features.  
  • Earlier, banks are used to finance only around 70.0% to 80.0% of the total vehicle price. However, currently, these banks are offering 100% finance for the vehicle, owing to which customers are showing more interest in purchasing a new car, over a used car.
  • The OEMs segment is anticipated to register the highest growth over the forecast period. Automotive OEMs provide better after-sales services due to the availability of identical automobile parts, like that of the vehicle financed, for repair or the replacement.

The segment growth can be attributed to the increasing number of leasing providers in emerging economies, such as India, China, and Japan. The leasing services are offered for both new as well as used cars.
  • Moreover, companies in automobile leasing are enhancing consumer experience and leveraging their profit margins by heavily investing in digitization technologies, such as blockchain.
