Power Bank Rental Market Trends and Competitive Landscape 2022 

The global power bank rental market is projected to reach USD 9,378.5 million by 2030. The power bank rental industry consists of companies that rent or lease power bank to consumers on hour-term, day-term or rent-to-own basis. The number of companies in the power bank rental (PBR) has increased rapidly over the past five years, partly reflecting growing consumer interest in power bank on rent services. Since the early 2017s, the power bank rental has been one of the fastest growing sub-sectors of the sharing economy market.


Increasing disposable income, growing glueyness of users to their smartphone and unwillingness to carry their power bank are some of key factors driving the growth of power bank rental market. Since 2014, more than 150 startups are founded to rent power banks across the globe. Also, the rising adoption of new smartphone technologies including 5G and increasing smartphone usage intensity is also anticipated to further increase demand for power bank rental services.


Millennials and Generation Z are major consumers of power bank rental as a service owing to their high usage hours of smartphone and willingness to pay for power bank rental service. This makes India and China one of the most lucrative countries for power bank rental service. In addition to this, increasing number of working youths, and rising urbanization are supporting the growth of power bank rental as a service in India and China market.


China held the largest share of the power rental market in 2021 and is projected to grow at 52.7% from 2022 to 2030. The growth of the power rental market in the region is driven by the increasing dependency on smartphones. The performance of the China market is forecast to follow a similar pattern with an anticipated CAGR of 41.3% for the five- year period 2022-2030, which is expected to drive the market to a value of USD 8.3 billion by the end of 2030. Comparatively, the US and European markets will grow with CAGRs of 80.5% and 63.0% respectively, over the same period.  In 2022, this market felt the colossal impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The various travel restrictions and lockdowns implemented across the world in the wake of COVID-19 have had a serious impact on the power rental industry. However, it got back to recovery by end of Q2 2021. 


The power bank market is highly competitive, with both big and small players present in the market. This segment studies growth strategies adopted by the market players to expand their global presence and increase their market share. Product launches & developments, and partnerships are among the major strategies adopted by market players to achieve growth in the power bank market. The key players contributing to the power rental market are Xiaodian, Energy Monster, Laidian, RedShare, ChargedUp, Powerqube, PowerNow, Spykke, A3Charge, among others. Leading companies are engaged in fierce competition to increase and protect their market share.


Rivalry should tensed throughout the forecast period because the number of power bank for rental and locations is expected to continue growing more fastly than market value, meaning margins will be under much pressure. However, projected high economic growth of China and India might ease rivalry.


Prior to the pandemic, consistent revenue growth enticed new entrants to enter the industry, while the industry's operators significantly expanded their overseas footprints. For example, Brezze, a Singapore based power bank rental company, expanded their footprints in United States.



Power bank rental startups investment and development are funded in a variety of ways. Passive capital investors such as institutional or angel investors – mainly sharing economy investors - are typically less dependent on the debt markets and primarily obtain investment with equity from their clients. In the case of power bank rental, many investors have created dedicated funds from which ‘seed capital’ is drawn to leverage further investment in large-scale programs. Some investors have not created specialist sharing economy funds but have funds also used for promising and high growth startups. Some investors are looking at power bank rental as a hot vertical and investing significantly. An example of this is investors in China has invested USD 174 Million within 40 days in 2017. Mostly, however, investors are funding in Seed A and Seed B, and forward fund entire to power bank rental developments.
