The Year is 2035. The Number of Vehicles has Doubled.

With compact and subcompact and micro-vehicles, we are shrinking individual cars as much as we can – but the quantity of cars on the road is doing anything but shrinking. In fact car ownership is increasing at an impressive rate around the world. In just 22 years, the global number for motor vehicles will be twice what it is now – 1.7 billion – according to a projection from the International Energy Agency (IEA). More vehicles on the road will have widespread impact; for example, it will mean that more vehicles are being moved from state to state by transporters.

China Seeing Huge Growth

China is undergoing explosive, nearly exponential growth in its auto sector. It is well understood worldwide that China is becoming a central location for development of the international automobile industry, but the extent to which this is the case is a little staggering. Chinese car ownership is on the rise at lightning speed, but it is still just in its infancy compared to what we will see a decade or two down the line. As we all aim to compete in an ever-changing global economy, if we do need to transport a vehicle, we look for cost-effective options.

Owners in the United States

The IEA base their findings in part on numbers of vehicles for each thousand people in the population. At the turn of the century in China, this number was at four; by 2010, it had increased tenfold to 40. The projection is that by 2035, that figure will be over 300. The United States, for reference, currently has over 600 vehicles per thousand individuals. That figure gives us a sense of how crucial the role of the car is in American society; our attachment to vehicles means you want to keep them safe when transporting them, whether to a destination in California or in Florida or anywhere in between.

Environmental Effects

The ramifications of a doubling of motor vehicles are mind-boggling. Clearly the environmental effect (via emission from the vehicles) gives us pause, but so does the possible shortage of fossil fuels to run these cars. It starts to seem that electric vehicles (EVs) – and any cars running on alternative fuel sources – will necessarily become more popular despite their functional disadvantages at present. However, the IEA does not see EV popularity happening but rather the implementation of stronger fuel-efficiency standards on all vehicles.
