Uber’s successes in this period forced the OEMs to make their own entrance and as a result the mentions of the sector grows significantly post Uber attaining Unicorn status. Lately, Ride-Sharing has entered a period of quiet consolidation with mergers and partnerships being brokered by the likes of SoftBank Group and other major players.
