What is Driving Demand for Motorcycle Chain?

Motorcycle chains are used to transmit power from the engine to the rear wheel. The motorcycle is driven by the motor drive chain, which is attached to a sprocket with a rear wheel. Depending on the model of motorcycle, different chains are offered.

One of the important trends that will contribute to the market growth is the usage of stainless chains for optimal efficiency and performance. For motorcycles, stainless chains provide enhanced efficiency and maximum drive performance.

Stainless chains are appropriate in situations where maintenance, as well as safety and consistency, are important. Stainless steel chains will be in high demand throughout the projected period due to features such as lesser need for re-lubrication, chemical resistance, and long service life.

Growing traffic congestion is fueling demand for motorcycles, which is propelling the chain industry forward. The necessity for motorcycle maintenance leads to the replacement of the chain, which is fueling the demand.

The trend of using motorbikes for recreational activities is increasing popularity in the Asia Pacific region as a result of the growing prosperous population and changing demographic perspective, which will raise demand for motorcycle chain.

Motorcycle chain have a lifespan that is determined by the driving conditions. These chains last for 25,000 to 30,000 miles, in favorable driving conditions. However, frequent maintenance is required, such as service and oiling.

On the other hand, in poor road conditions, the overall operational life of motorcycle chain is significantly reduced, necessitating regular repair. As a result, poor road conditions have the potential to raise the aftermarket segment in the global market.

US and Canada Demand Outlook of Motorcycle Chain

Manufacturers are concentrating their efforts in the US. In the US, high demand for a wide range of motorcycles such as sports, touring, cruising and others is fueling the growth of the market. North America will showcase a positive growth rate over the forecasted period.

In the motorcycle chain market, this trend of recreational activities is boosting demand for X-ring and O-ring type chains.

Riders are also concentrating on purchasing and maintaining high-end motorcycles, which will push the market even more.
