Droom said the fresh funds will be used to boost its market share, which it claimed stands at 70%. It added that it tech-led platform will also invest heavily in further developing its artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities.

The company said in the statement that it plans to launch an initial public offering (IPO) next year.

Droom also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Toyota Tsusho Corporation to expand internationally in Southeast Asia.

Droom had received $20 million last July in a Series C round led by Integrated Asset Management (Asia) Ltd and Digital Garage Inc.

In the online used automobiles selling space, Droom competes with Truebil, Zoomo, CarDekho (which had acquired Gaadi.com), Carwale and CarTrade. Horizontal people-to-people platforms, such as OLX and Quikr, too, share the same space.
