Growth Factors

 The growing carbon emission by traditional fuel-based vehicles has been a key concern for government authorities. The sustainability move toward smart cities is one of the key factors responsible for the adoption of eco-friendly and cost-effective transportation. Since the electric kick scooters, electric bicycles, and electric skateboards run on batteries, there are no carbon or gaseous emissions from these vehicles. This mode of transportation is gaining popularity amongst environmentally conscious commuters. Adopting such eco-friendly vehicles not only reduces the carbon and sulfur emissions in the atmosphere but also decreases fuel consumption. Furthermore, these vehicles use ultra-quiet chains for operating the electric motor, thereby facilitating noise-free rides.

Rapid urbanization and local commute requirements

In the recent years, urbanization has been attaining peak year on year, as majority of the population is shifting to urban areas, owing to increase in work opportunities and rapid industrialization. In this era of urbanization, daily commute between the workplace and residence is the need for every individual passenger, which is associated with travel time. Moreover, urban passengers are more inclined toward technologically advanced commute solutions along with its time-effective commute option to avoid unnecessary long traffic congestion along with green mobility. Thus, urban passengers are more dependent on technologically advanced solutions for daily commute, which significantly boosts the demand for micromobility services.

Rise in venture capital and strategic investments

The significant rise in the preference of carpool and bike pool services among regular office commuters is the primary factor contributing toward the growth of the ride hailing and ride sharing services. In addition, increase in services offered by the leading market players, including Uber and Ola, and the option to choose convenient pick-up and drop locations are encouraging consumers to opt for ride hailing and ride sharing services. 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 micromobility market. Furthermore, ride sharing service providers are offering advantages such as affordable doorstep pick-up and drop, co-passenger information, and higher convenience as compared to the traditional transport service providers. This is expected to propel the demand for ride share services. In addition, several service providers offer various facilities, offers, and discounts, such as monthly pass on shared ride, to reduce the expenses of daily commuters. 

Covid-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 has presented the world with an unprecedented economic, humanitarian, and healthcare challenge. Lockdown measures have helped to contain the spread of coronavirus, but exacted an immense economic toll. On the business side, the automotive and mobility sectors are among the hardest hit. While lockdown measures and shelter-at-home orders are helping contain the coronavirus, they have also brought severe financial hardship. Amid a new reality of working from home, canceling trips, and even forgoing outings to restaurants and grocery stores, the micromobility industry encompassing a range of lightweight vehicles, such as bicycles, e-scooters, and mopeds, is facing devastating declines in ridership and revenue. With the number of passenger-kilometers traveled declining 50% to 60% worldwide since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, use of micromobility solutions has declined dramatically.

Report Highlights

 Based on vehicle type, the micro-mobility market is segmented into electric kick scooters, electric skateboards, and electric bicycles. The electric bicycles segment dominated the market in 2020 and accounted for more than 8% of the global revenue. The segment is projected to register a CAGR of over 14.8% over the forecast period as they are the most affordable and convenient alternatives to public transportation. 

The electric kick scooters segment is anticipated to record the second-highest CAGR of 10.5% over the forecast period. The demand for these scooters has increased since 2017 owing to large investments by players in the electric scooter-sharing market as it is still in the transition phase. 

Based on battery, the market is segmented into sealed lead acid battery, Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery, and Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery. The sealed lead-acid battery segment dominated the market in 2020 and accounted for more than 55.0% of the global revenue. The segment is projected to register a CAGR of over 12.10% over the forecast period.

The growing awareness of adopting eco-friendly batteries for their better performance, over sealed-lead acid and NiMH batteries has boosted the demand for Li-ion batteries. Since these batteries are high priced compared to the other two battery types, their adoption has resulted in an increased price of electric vehicles in the emerging markets. 

Based on voltage, the market is segmented into below 24V, 36V, 48V, and greater than 48V. The below 24V segment dominated the market in 2020 and accounted for more than 75.0% of the global revenue. It is anticipated to continue to dominate the market over the forecast period.

The 36V segment is anticipated to register the highest CAGR of 17.0% over the forecast period. The integration of 36V systems in electric vehicles not only increases the distance range but also improves the performance of the vehicle. 

The Asia Pacific region dominated the market in 2020 and accounted for over 48.0% share of the global revenue. Most players manufacturing micro-mobility vehicles operate in Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America regions. These players generate revenue by selling their products internationally, either through their distribution channels or through the OEM channel. 

Consumer demographic features vary among different regions. Electric kick scooter drivers from North America and Europe tend to perceive electric kick scooters more as a lifestyle while those from Latin America, Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific use electric kick scooters more as practical transportation means.
