Uber’s business in India may soon overtake its American operations

41 sec read

America has a ton of people, but India has more, and they’re also less likely to own cars. That’s why Uber expects its ride-sharing business in India to overtake its American operations in the near future, which explains why the company recently promised to invest $1 billion to expand in India. 

Uber expects its business in India to overtake its U.S. operations in time, as it prepares to expand into more rural parts of the country to tap the huge growth potential on offer. That’s according to representatives from the ride-hailing app, who responded to our questions following Uber’s announcement to invest $1 billion growing its business in India. That pledge came right after a push to raise a similar figure for its business in China, which is already at a reported one million trips per day. As Asia becomes an increasingly strategic region for Uber, both in terms of existing scale and growth potential, we asked a series of questions to the world’s most iconic taxi app company to better understand its plans for India, which is already Uber’s second largest market worldwide based on the number of cities covered.
