The increasing demand for convenient short-distance commuting, fluctuating fuel prices, and growing environmental awareness are driving market expansion. Over the past two years, kick scooter adoption has significantly increased in countries including France, Spain, Germany, and the U.S.; this trend is anticipated to continue over the coming years. Electric scooter ride-hailing start-ups are working with leading manufacturers to increase their customer base and market offerings. The advantages of e-kick scooters, such as their reduced need for parking space, lightness, portability, quick charging, and affordability of transportation, are anticipated to support the adoption of electric scooter & bike sharing services globally.

An electric kick scooter or an e-kick scooter is a lightweight & stand-up motorized scooter powered by integrated motor drive machines and rechargeable batteries. Electric scooters, unlike traditional scooters, do not require gas or fuel to operate and are versatile, cost-effective, portable, durable, and eco-friendly. They are commercially available in a variety of compact sizes, which allows consumers to use them as micro-mobility solutions for covering short distances at higher speeds. E-kick scooters are currently available in Sealed Lead-acid (SLA), Nickel-metal Hydride (NiMH), and Lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery configurations.

Safety concerns are one of the primary challenges confronting the global electric kick scooter market. If not used properly, e-kick scooters can be hazardous to both riders and pedestrians. Accidents can also be exacerbated by a lack of proper infrastructure, including dedicated bike lanes and parking spaces. Regulatory issues pose another significant challenge for the market. Many cities have set speed limits, helmet requirements, and parking restrictions for the use of e-kick scooters.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic restrained the automotive industry. Global supply chain disruption and financial losses due to production & assembly plant closures hampered market growth. Post-pandemic, the market is expected to benefit from the rising demand for more environment-friendly and hassle-free transport options owing to COVID-19 impacts and favorable government policies.

Electric Kick Scooter Market Trends

Global government authorities are particularly concerned about the rising carbon emissions. To support the adoption of electric vehicles, governments are implementing several initiatives, changing regulatory requirements, and offering incentives. As a result, consumers are increasingly choosing electric two wheeler, such as e-kick scooters, over conventional vehicles, especially in developed countries. Infrastructure development and the rising focus of regulatory authorities have increased the penetration of electric transportation options, creating new growth opportunities in the market. Major companies are concentrating on creating high-speed, low-maintenance, durable, and technologically advanced scooters that can meet the demands of customers worldwide.

The electric kick scooter market from foldable kick scooter segment is poised to expand at 10% CAGR during the projected timeline. With the increase in traffic congestion in major cities and surrounding areas, commuters are forced to choose expensive modes of transportation or buy expensive homes close to their workplaces. Individuals who live farther away from their workplaces must travel for extended periods of time.

As a result, transportation nightmares reach new heights, prompting many people to seek out quick & convenient modes of transportation. The solution to all these transportation issues is a foldable electric scooter. It should fit in the trunk of a car and should be light enough to transport to the bus stop, the store, or the office. A foldable electric scooter allows one to go around town and travel short distances without the need for four-wheeled vehicles.

The electric kick scooter market from Li-ion battery segment volume shipment is set to cross 5 million units by 2032. In the upcoming years, Li-Ion technology is anticipated to become popular due to the superior performance and environmental benefits these batteries offer. Continuous advancements in battery technology have improved their overall cost-effectiveness and storage capacity, making them a preferred option for portable & low-cost devices such as kick scooters.

Compared to SLA batteries, Li-Ion batteries with digital battery management offer quicker charging times and a longer battery lifecycle. The market is anticipated to benefit from long battery discharge cycles, high current density, a long usable lifespan, and reliable thermal stability work.

Electric Kick Scooter Power Segmentation

The 25V to 50V segment will register over 10% CAGR through 2032, due to their high capacity and their ability to emit appropriate levels of carbon dioxide, which extends their driving range. As this power range necessitates a compact design and faster charging times, these batteries use NiMH or Li-ion technology. In terms of design and charging time, Li-ion batteries are more environment-friendly than SLA batteries. These models include technologies, such as turbochargers and air conditioning compressors, which are difficult to incorporate into scooters with less than 25V. As a result, the need to reduce carbon emissions is expected to fuel the electric kick scooter market demand.

Electric Kick Scooter End-Use Segmentation

The electric kick scooter market from personal segment will cross USD 3.5 Billion by 2032. Increased product adoption among children and adults is responsible for the high segmental share. To improve overall performance and reliability, manufacturers are also focused on enhancing the efficiency of the components by creating ultra-high-speed ball bearings, using high-quality materials, and incorporating innovative technologies.
