Adoption of Clean Technology Expected to Boost the Electric Bike Market

Government agencies are focusing on electro-mobility and reducing pollution, hence, zero emission vehicles are being increasingly promoted through attractive incentives and schemes. This has led to an enhanced focus on electric bikes and thus, a significant increase in the sales of electric bikes is expected over the forecast period. Apart from curbing air pollution, electric bikes also help reduce the level of noise pollution.

Growth in the transportation sector has severely depleted non-renewable petroleum reserves, and this has increased the prices of fuel. Fuel prices are expected to increase exponentially in the coming years as crude oil reserves will be reduced, which will pave the way for the growth of vehicles running on alternate sources of energy. Moreover, the prices and consumption of petroleum products as fuel in the automotive sector is growing day by day, and to reduce the global consumption of the same, manufacturers and governments are promoting the usage of electric bikes as they are far more fuel-efficient compared to conventional automobiles. These factors are estimated to enhance the electric bike market.
