E-bike Market: Introduction

E-bike stands for electric bikes. It refers to a scooter, bicycle or motorcycle (two-wheeler)  having an integrated electrical motor for propulsion. These e-bikes run on electricity and do not require filling of fuel as they work on battery that needs to be charged. The charging time depends upon the type of battteries installed such as lead-acid batteries, lithium-ion batteries etc. Nowadays, electric bikes are prefered as these are ecofriendly and affordable in the long run.

The e-bike market is witnessing excellent growth opportunities worldwide. According to forecast, the global market for e-bikes will witness substantial growth with steady CAGR rate through 2030.

Key Growth Factors

Growing awareness regarding environmental protection across the world is catching the attention of companies and this contributes to fuel the growth of e-bike market. E-bikes are safe for the environment as these do not release harmful gases and help in avoiding pollution and other environmental degradations.

Hike in the price of petrol and diesel is influencng consumers to invest in e-bikes. Although many bikes running on petrol are priced lower than e-bike, the investmet usually pays off, as in the long-run, the cost of charging is significantly lesser.

Key Restraints

The speed factor is posing  a challenge to the market growth of electric bikes. E-bikes have low speed as compared to non electric bikes. E-bikes cannot travel to distances more than 120kms without recharge. Further, charging capability  of electric bikes is low as it takes large time to get charged. Quick charging is still in development, and these factors continue to be deterrents for consumers.

In addition to concerns about speed and charging, another challenge is that most e-bikes are designed for single-use, and have limitation on the maximum weight. In many developing countries, two-wheelers are used by families for commuting and also for buying groceries. Many consumers are putting off purchasing an e-bike due to weight limitation.
