Key Trends Fueling Growth

  • Off-lease cars fueling used car market: 
    • Every year, many leased vehicles become available for purchase in the worldwide car leasing market. Car leasing companies face a challenge as these off-lease vehicles accumulate, sitting idle or underused in their inventory. This surplus hampers their profits, prompting dealers to take action. To counter this, they opt to sell these older off-lease cars as used vehicles.
    • Offering lessees the option to buy the vehicle at the end of the lease term is common practice, as they are familiar with its condition and may choose to retain ownership by paying the residual amount. This surplus of off-lease cars exerts downward pressure on dealer profits, leading them to either lower lease prices or sell these vehicles as used cars at significant discounts.
    • Despite the challenges, selling off-lease vehicles as used cars enables dealers to maintain profitability. This approach is widespread across major car leasing companies globally, fueling the growth of the car leasing market.

Major Challenges:

  • Limited customer awareness and acceptance in semi-urban and rural areas 
    • Car leasing, while widespread in cities for over a decade, faces low acceptance in semi-urban and rural areas, where it could offer advantages over car ownership. This limited acceptance is particularly notable in emerging countries like India, China, and Indonesia, where car ownership is often seen as a status symbol.
    • The complexity of leasing terms such as money factor, residual value, and capitalized costs adds to the challenge, as does the confusion around additional charges for excess mileage and wear and tear.
    • These charges can be particularly burdensome in areas where distances are greater, making it difficult for customers in semi-urban and rural areas to grasp and accept the leasing model. As a result, the lack of awareness and acceptance among these customers is likely to impede the growth of the global car leasing market in the foreseeable future.
