Rising government initiatives to control carbon emissions have encouraged public & private organizations to promote the use of e-bikes, thereby increasing product awareness among the public. Moreover, government organizations and private players are also collaborating to deploy e-bikes in various stations and establish rental e-bikes services.

The rising trend of home delivery and e-bike sharing services in urban areas, primarily in developing nations, will also transform the industry outlook. Companies partaking in the market share are working to cater to the ever-growing product demand and expanding their customer base by partnering with dealers and engaging in rigorous research and development activities to support technological developments in the sector.

High-priced components may restrain industry progression

The high cost of these bikes is a major factor restraining e-bike market growth. E-bikes have expensive components, such as motors, controllers, and batteries, which make them comparatively costlier. These bikes vary in the range of motor capacity – the larger the capacity, the more expensive the e-bike. E-bikes with 48-72V capacity motors are known to be the most efficient & expensive. Nonetheless, the development of advanced battery technologies will enable industry players to enhance the performance and range of e-bikes in the coming years, which will positively influence the product scenario.

The city/urban bike segment held 50% of the revenue share in 2021. City bikes are gaining remarkable demand on account of fundamental difficulties, such as traffic congestion, densely populated places, health hazards, pollution, and fuel expenditure. However, e-bikes that cover short-distance rides or within cities assist people in urban areas in solving their problems, thereby bolstering product uptake.

Low maintenance and smooth operation to help hub motor gain traction

The hub motor segment in the electric bike market is anticipated to reach USD 25 billion by 2030 owing to its various advantages as compared to mid-drive motors, such as less maintenance and smoother & quieter operations. Hub motors eliminate the powerplant and negate the need for a heavy transmission, differential, driveline, and axles, thereby propelling the segment growth.

SLA-powered e-bikes to benefit from low-cost and recyclability factors

The SLA powered e-bike segment is expected to record a valuation of more than USD 4 billion by 2030. The sealed lead acid-powered bikes have low-cost batteries and easy recyclability, which makes them suitable for day-to-day use. The burgeoning preference for sustainable bikes with maximum convenience and comfort will also augment the demand for SLA battery-equipped e-bikes.

Increasing customer shift towards online platforms

The online channel segment is estimated to attain 5.5% growth rate till 2030. E-bike manufacturers are shifting to online channels to allow new & current businesses to tap into untapped markets and expand their customer base by reaching out to potential customers without having to set up a physical store. Additionally, recent customer preference for online shopping has also pushed manufacturers to sell products on e-commerce platforms.
