E-bike Market Size 2021 to 2030

Growth Factors

Electric bike is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor drive mechanism and battery, which produces power for causing or assisting propulsion. Various kinds of globally available e-bikes range from electric bikes with a small motor to assist the pedal-power of the rider to more powerful e-bikes that produce power to completely drive the bike using throttle. 

The region, India, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan are potential markets owing to the increasing e-bike sales in these countries. The mountain e-bike is expected to account for a significant share of the ebike market during the forecast period due to its robustness and high-performance design. Class I e-bike is expected to be the largest market during the forecast period as countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan allow only class-I e-bikes as they are without throttle assist and have a maximum speed of 25 Km/h.

Implementation of government regulations to encourage the use of electric bikes

Governments of various countries are taking initiatives to reduce the carbon footprints by encouraging the use of electric bikes, electric vehicles, and bicycles, owing to increase in awareness toward the hazardous effects of using vehicles running on fossil fuels. Moreover, governments are constructing bicycle-friendly streets, which are encouraging individuals to opt for bicycle as a key mode of commute. Electric bicycles, scooters, and motorcycles have gained significant attention from various governments as reliable and efficient types of light motor vehicles (LMVs), which help in reducing the carbon footprint. Furthermore, to encourage the use of these environment-friendly vehicles, governments around the world are supporting for the purchase of electric mobility, in terms of tax credits and incentives. For instance, in June 2019, the Indian Government announced a plan to lower the goods & service tax (GST) on e-vehicles from 12% to 5% for faster adoption of electric vehicles. Furthermore, infrastructure facilities such as guarded bicycle parking facilities, construction of more bicycle (express) routes, and establishment of battery charging stations in many countries by the governments significantly boost the adoption of electric bikes by users, thereby propelling the growth of the E-bikes market.

Growing popularity of e-MTB. And High Cost of e-bikes 

High cost of e-bikes is a major factor that restrains the growth of the E-bikes market. The cost of the battery and technology makes e-bikes costlier as compared to traditional bicycles, conventional scooters, or motorcycles. Hence, consumers find conventional scooters or motorcycles superior in performance with same or less price. 

Trend towards connected e-bikes and Improvement in bicycling infrastructure & battery technology

Some of the important features offered by the connected e-bike include automatic emergency calls, integrated navigation, social media connection, anti-theft system, and remote diagnostics. Bosch is one of the major players in the e-bike market, offering connected electric bike solutions.

E-bikes are less expensive than cars, do not require license, and can be used on existing bicycling infrastructure. Rapid urbanization and less preference of consumers to use cars due to increased traffic congestion are anticipated to offer lucrative opportunities for market expansion. In addition, governments of various countries focus on the development of infrastructure for e-bikes, including bicycle tracks and public charging stations with the inclination of consumers toward e-bikes.

Consumer inclination toward use of e-bikes as an eco-friendly & efficient solution for commute

Increase in global carbon emission by fuel combustion has been one of the major concerns for governments and environmentalists from the past few decades. This, in turn, boosts the demand for electric vehicles across the globe, thereby supplementing the growth of the market. In addition, due to rise in cost of fuel at international level, increase in pollution, and traffic congestion especially in urban areas have increased the popularity of electric bikes across every continent. Moreover, higher running and maintenance cost of fuel vehicle leads to shift in preference for electric bike in daily commute, which, in turn, propels the E-bikes market growth.

High cost of e-bikes

High cost of e-bikes is a major factor that restrains the growth of the E-bikes market. The cost of the battery and technology makes e-bikes costlier as compared to traditional bicycles, conventional scooters, or motorcycles. Hence, consumers find conventional scooters or motorcycles superior in performance with same or less price. Moreover, the use of lithium–ion batteries or drive mechanism of motor incurs maximum cost, thereby restraining the growth of the market. Hence, upsurge in adoption of e-bikes in countries other than China is limited by high costs. However, the E-bikes market is growing at a rapid rate globally, which may reduce the impact of this restraint in the near future.

Technology Challenges

The two most fundamental elements of the e-bike are the motor and battery. The motor provides the force, and the battery stores and supplies the energy. Controlling the speed and torque of the motor across a wide range of speed and load conditions is one of the challenges for ebike manufacturers.

The main challenges in encouraging growth in the global e-bike market lie in designing a smart battery. E-bikes must travel long distances in a short period. This places tremendous pressure on their batteries which have limited capacity for storing energy.  There is also another challenge of designing e-bikes that would work with and be responsive to apps on mobile devices.

The lithium ion battery segment is projected to lead the electric bike market

The lithium ion battery segment, by battery type is the largest segment as lithium-ion batteries are preferred in e-bikes presently. These batteries are smaller in size, long-lasting, and have more power-to-weight ratio than other batteries.

Class-I segment is expected to be the largest segment during the forecast period

Class-I segment, by class type in e-bikes is expected to be the largest segment during the forecast period as Asia Pacific countries. which are a major market for e-bikes, such as China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan allow only Class-I e-bikes. This results in the Class-I e-bikes occupying the largest market share in the Asia Pacific region.

The mountain/trekking e-bike segment by usage is expected to be the fastest-growing market

The demand for mountain/trekking e-bikes is growing rapidly as consumers increasingly show interest in trekking and recreational activities. There is a growing interest in performance-based adventurous sports, which, in turn, increase the demand for mountain/trekking e-bikes. Sports and physical activities are becoming more adaptable through electric motors. In many countries, mountain e-bikes are not only used for mountain trekking but also for daily commutation. The main reason for the growing popularity of mountain e-bikes is their robustness.

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the largest market in 2021

Asia Pacific is anticipated to lead the e-bike market during the forecast period due to the high sales of e-bikes in the region. According to analysis, in terms of volume, Asia Pacific contributed about ~88% to the global electric bike market in 2020 by volume. Key e-bike manufacturers in this region include Yadea Group Holdings Ltd., AIMA Technology Group Co., Ltd., and Merida Industry Co., Ltd. Class-I e-bikes accounted for the largest market in Asia Pacific, as government regulations permit only Class-I e-bikes, except for India where the market for Class-II e-bikes exists due to lack of strict regulations.

The European region accounted for approximately 39 % of the e-bike market. The European region was dominated by Germany, followed by France and Italy.

In Germany, e-bike is a preferred mode of commute. E-bikes are also used in this country for sports and leisure. They serve as a clean, quiet, and space-saving alternative for city logistics, in the country.
