Search Inside

The e-bike market was valued at USD 23.89 billion in 2020. The market is expected to witness a CAGR of 11.86 % during the forecast period, 2021-2026.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak and the subsequent lockdowns (with all the restrictions followed), the production of e-bikes witnessed a decline. However, as life slowly returns to a state of normalcy, the market is picking up pace. Due to the pandemic and the risk of contamination, while commuting via public transport, people are showing an increased interest in buying their own means of commute.

Apart from increasing consumer preference toward recreational and adventure activities, the adoption of e-bike applications in several sectors, like logistics and e-bike rental services, is expected to drive the market studied, during the forecast period.

The market has been segmented by propulsion type and application type. In 2020, by propulsion type, pedal-assisted e-bikes dominated the market and accounted for a significant share of the global market. By application type, the city/urban e-bikes segment dominated the market.

Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the global market. In Asia-Pacific, China led the regional market. The largest consumption of electric bikes was in China, which boosted the sales figure, thus influencing the growth of the global market for electric bikes.

Some of the major players in the e-bike market are Giant Bicycles, Merida, Trek Bikes, Riese & Muller, and M1 Sporttechnik.

Key Market Trends
Growing Demand for Eco-friendly Transportation

- Due to increasingly busy lives and the need to commute daily, it has become almost necessary to own a vehicle, as public transport often is not reliable. On the back of that, there is a growing concern for preserving and sustaining the environment for future generations, mainly because of the increasing scarcity of natural resources and environmental concerns. This poses a unique challenge for both society and governments. E-bikes are the ideal solution to this problem. They are environment-friendly, and they solve the problem of the daily commute. This is augmenting the demand for e-bikes.
- As people’s lives get busy, they need to travel around more nowadays. However, with the continually growing environmental and health concerns, there is an increase in emission levels from transports. Hence, governments and international organizations worldwide are enacting stringent emission norms to reduce carbon emission levels.
- Additionally, the depletion of fossil fuel levels at an alarming rate has been creating concerns for sustainability for future generations. This factor is posing a huge challenge for governments and society. Thus, e-bikes are proving to be an ideal solution for this problem.

Europe is the Fastest-growing Market

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.
Some of the major factors driving the sales of the e-bike market are the innovative nature of the product, fully-integrated batteries and drives, appealing designs, as well as the use of high-quality materials.

The major players in the region are introducing the latest products to capture the growing market. For instance,

- Gazelle, one of the subsidiaries of the Pon Bike Group, developed a cargo e-bike, the Gazell D10 model, with joint-partners Aluca and DOCKR (mobility as a services (MaaS) start-up). The new cargo e-bike, identified as light electrical freight transporter (LEFT), accommodates up to two standard carriage boxes with Euro Pallet dimensions (1,200*800*1,100 millimeter), capable of carrying a volume of one cubic meter and load capacity of 100 kg.

Apart from Germany, countries, like France, Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain, also witnessed a high demand for e-bikes. Some of the major reasons considered for adopting e-bikes are the health benefits, environmental benefits, reduction in expenditure, avoidance of traffic congestion, and the increase in demand for e-bikes as sports equipment among the youth. In the Netherlands, a quarter of all Europeans were found to be willing to commute by e-bikes.

Competitive Landscape
The e-bike market is extremely fragmented, with the major players holding a low share of the total market share. Some of the major market players are Giant Bicycles, Merida, Trek Bikes, Riese & Muller, and Fritzmeier Systems GmbH & Co. Kg (M1 Sporttechnik). Giant Bicycles is the largest player in this market.

All of these companies’ presence is majorly concentrated in China, with Europe and North America being the other important markets. The companies are diversifying their product portfolio through innovations and new launches and are aiming to continue their spots as the market leaders.
