Rising internet penetration drives the demand for the online taxi services market.The availability of high-speed internet connectivity and convenience associated with using online services is shifting consumer preferences towards online taxi services.

According to the Internet World Stats, the number of internet users increased from 4,208 million to 4,833 million in June 2020. Furthermore, internet users in India are expected to grow from 636.73 million in 2019 to 974.86 million by the end of 2025. A growing number of internet users with smartphones now have taxi services at their fingertips that give the drivers’ details and location and benefit the user and thereby fuel the demand for the online taxi services market.

Stringent regulations imposed on online taxi services operations limit the growth of the online taxi services market.Many cases of assault and molestation have been registered against online taxi services as a result of which governments across the world have imposed strict regulations on the providers.

These incidents call for a strong policy to secure customers.Governments have imposed strict background checks on Uber and Lyft drivers and mandatory fingerprint background checks to avoid such incidents any further.

Other regulations imposed by governments to comply with the service providers include India’s Motor Vehicle (Amendment) Bill 2016 and Information Technology Act, 2000, Malaysia’s Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board Act 1987 (Act 334) (“CVLBA 1987”) and the Land Public Transport Act 2010 (“LPTA 2010”)(Act 715).The laws under the act regulate both e-hailing operators and drivers.

Moreover, e-hailing service providers are mandated to have an intermediation business license to operate their business in Malaysia. Thus, the stringent rules and regulations imposed on taxi services are restricting the online taxi services market growth during the forecast period.
