Moreover, significant rise in the number of multiple ride-hailing and ride-sharing services such as bike sharing and auto sharing services even for short distance travel fuels the growth of the taxi market.

Motorcycle is projected as the most lucrative segments

Improvement of public transportation

Increase in government investments in public transport infrastructure, especially in emerging countries such as India, Indonesia, China, and others restrict the growth of the taxi market. The developments of public transportation services such as metro trains, monorails, and local bus transport services are expected to affect the growth of taxi services, as they provide cheaper ways of transport when compared with private taxis and cabs.

Varying government regulations on taxi services in different countries across the world

In many countries, the operations of app-based mobility services are not regulated by a legal authority. therefore, their operation is not defined and regulated by the government. In addition, taxi services are required to obtain separate licenses and registration in most of the countries across the world. This makes it difficult for app-based taxi services to operate as many app-based companies do not own the vehicles. Moreover, stringent government norms on the taxi industry especially in countries such as Australia and Vietnam further hinder the market growth. For instance, in 2018, the Department of Transportation in Vietnam decided to stop licensing operators under a pilot program, as the app-based taxis have been putting pressure on local traffic infrastructure and create unhealthy competition with the traditional taxi and transportation firms.
