Sales of E-Bikes to Reach $19 billion by End of 2022

As bicycle ownership has increased in recent years, so too has the demand for electric bicycles. In our analysis of data from European countries, we found that the sales of electric bicycles have grown significantly in the past few years, with a CAGR of over 20%. This growth is being driven by a number of factors, including an increase in public awareness of the benefits of electric bicycles, advances in technology that have made them more affordable and accessible, and government incentives that have encouraged their purchase.

As per latest SkyQuest study, global e-bicycle market is projected to grow at a CAGR of more than 13% and generate a revenue of over $39 billion by the end of 2028. In addition to this growing demand, we also found that there is a large untapped market for electric bicycles. In our analysis, we conservatively estimated that only 1-2% of people who own traditional bicycles currently own an electric bicycle. This leaves a huge opportunity for growth in the coming years.

We believe that this demand will continue to grow as electric bicycles become more prevalent in the global bicycle market and accepted as a mode of transportation. As battery technology continues to improve and prices come down, we expect even more people to switch to electric bicycles for their commuting needs. Governments can also play a role in fostering this growth by investing in infrastructure and offering financial incentives. Electric bicycles will be a key driver of growth in the coming years. In China, e-bike sales grew by 25% in 2021 and are expected to continue to grow rapidly. Europe is also seeing an increase in e-bike sales, with Germany being a leading market. In the US alone, more than 500,000 units of e-bicycles were sold.

According to SkyQuest, the demand for electric bicycle market is increasing globally. In Europe, electric bicycle sales reached a record 7.1 million units in 2021, and are expected to grow to 10.5 million by 2025.

Global Bicycle Market Become Highly Competitive

The global bicycle industry is highly competitive, with many companies vying for market share. SkyQuest’s analysis shows that the industry is fragmented, with no one company holding a dominant position. The top four companies in the industry (SHIMANO, Trek, Giant, and Specialized) hold a combined market share of just over 50%.

There are many factors that contribute to the high degree of competition in the bicycle market. First, there are low barriers to entry, meaning that it is relatively easy for new companies to enter the market. Second, there is a wide range of products available, from low-end to high-end bikes. This gives consumers a lot of choice and makes it difficult for any one company to stand out from the crowd.

Third, the industry is global, with companies selling bikes all over the world. This means that companies must be able to compete on price and quality in order to succeed. Fourth, there are a number of well-established brands in the industry with strong customer loyalty. This makes it difficult for new companies to gain market share in the global bicycle market.

Finally, bicycle manufacturing is not particularly capital intensive, so there is little barrier to entry for new firms. In addition, raw materials for bicycles are readily available and manufacturing processes are relatively simple. As a result, there are many small manufacturers in the market who can quickly respond to changes in demand or pricing pressure from larger competitors
