Mobility industries

Mobility industries comprise activities that provide products and services which aim to optimise the mobility of goods and people by combining or connecting different means and modes of transport (notably car/road, train/rail, airplane/air and ship/water), by optimising the effectiveness and resource-efficiency or reducing the cost or environmental impact of mobility, for example through the use of new materials, new energy sources and grids (e.g. new technologies and devices such as GPS, Galileo for electric vehicles).

Mobility industries build upon competences in transport and logistics on the one side and/or IT and mobile services on the other, but may also cut into other sectors such as mobile navigation services, tourism, retail and financial services. The activities of this emerging industry add value by providing, for instance, integrated, smart, clean, service-oriented and/or user-focused mobility services and related products . They provide new services to the particular needs of both businesses (B2B) and customers (B2C). This includes the provision of different forms of facilitation and mediation services such as tracking and management services and related products as well as the organisation of specific service offers, such as deliveries or car-sharing in relation to other forms of transport.

The classification methodology for emerging industries assigned the NACE codes listed below to the mobility industries. The codes and descriptions shown in italics were identified in addition to those included in priority sector report on the mobility industry prepared under the European Cluster Observatory. These additional codes include: the manufacturing of components for different types of vehicles; construction of infrastructure related to mobility; and the sale of vehicles.
