China’s Didi Aims to achieve 8 per cent penetration rate in the mobility market

Didi did not say what its current average daily global orders were, but last year it said it expected domestic ride-sharing trips, which account for the bulk of its business, could reach 37 million on September 30, before China’s national day holiday.

Didi aims to achieve an 8% penetration rate in China’s mobility market, Cheng said, explaining the company’s three-year strategy as quoted in a company statement on Friday. Globally the company is expanding its business in Japan, Australia and Latin America. The bike sharing business, DiDi Bike, raised over $1 billion in its latest fundraising, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Friday.

The coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 143,000 people globally, has battered ride-hailing demand as strict containment measures imposed by the government disrupt business and bring most social activity to a standstill. Uber Technologies Inc on Thursday withdrew its 2020 forecast for gross bookings and said it expects an impairment charge of up to $2.2 billion in the first quarter due to the virus outbreak.
