It tracks the global Electric Bike market across key regions, and offers in-depth commentary and accurate quantitative insights. The study also includes incisive competitive landscape analysis, and provides key recommendations to market players on winning imperatives and successful strategies.
Pedelecs expected to lead the product type segment in the electric bike market
At present, pedelecs are the most common types of electric bikes as well as the simplest forms of electric bikes in the market with all the basic functions for city riding. They are low-powered e-bikes where pedalling is mainly assisted by a small electric motor. Pedelecs are the most widely adopted e-bikes in China owing to their inherent advantages. Pedelces are projected to be the most prominent product type segment in the electric bike market growing at a significant CAGR of 3.2% during the forecast period. The demand for electric scooters and motorcycles is growing at a relatively slow pace as compared to pedelecs.
The lead-based battery type segment to dominate the electric bike market
The lead-based battery type segment holds more than 85% in the electric bike market. They are currently the most prominent battery type and this segment is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period as lead-based batteries cost lower than other battery types. However, the weight of these batteries is high, they have a low charging life and they violate certain emission norms, owing to which they are likely to be replaced by the Li-ion and the NiMH segment in the coming years. The Li-Ion battery type segment is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR of 3% in terms of value in the electric bike market during the forecast period.
Battery electric bike estimated to be the most lucrative segment in the electric bike market
The demand for battery electric bikes is estimated to grow at a significant rate and projected to hold more than 80% of the electric bike market throughout the forecast period. The plug-in electric scooter segment is growing at a relatively slow pace as compared to the battery electric bike segment. The slow growth in the plug-in electric bike market is due to an insufficient number of charging stations worldwide. Though plug-in electric bikes can be charged at home, they are likely to require charging station in case of emergency situations for refilling the battery just like conventional vehicles require gas stations or filling stations. Therefore, in terms of value, the battery electric bike segment held more than 80% of the market share in 2017.
Asia Pacific dominates the global electric bike market
Two wheelers are the most prominent mode of transportation in the Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) region, which makes APEJ a key region for the production and sales of two wheelers. The key countries for two-wheeler sales in the APEJ region are China, India, and ASEAN countries. The popularity of two wheelers makes APEJ the most prominent market for electric bikes. The electric bikes market is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR of 3.2% and represent a total incremental opportunity of US$ 6.1 Bn in terms of value during the forecast period.
