The Mobility Matrix serves as a decomposition tool for McKinsey to comprehensively understand and analyse the mobility market. From the McKinsey report 'Mobility of the future'.

In 2010, EUR 6.4 trillion was spent on the transport of humans and goods, almost EUR 1,000 per person on the planet. This global market for mobility effectively quadrupled in the last 40 years, growing at 3.8 per cent per annum, outpacing world GDP (3.1 per cent). Mobility now accounts for 13 per cent of global GDP.

The matrix shows that motorised private transport is the largest mobility segment, accounting for almost 50 per cent (EUR 3,070 billion) of the global market.

As a side note, the matrix uses a market value perspective by measuring revenues; a more usage-based analysis of, e.g., kilometres driven would result in a different matrix scheme.
