Global Bicycle Market Trends:

Growing Adoption of E-Bikes   

The escalating prices of fuel and the rising traffic congestion, especially in urban and metropolitan areas, are increasing the preferences of consumers towards electric bicycles. Besides this, the growing number of individuals are shifting to cities, owing to the availability of numerous opportunities and ease in access to transport, which will further lead to more traffic congestion. According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affair, 68% of the global population will live in urban areas by 2050. This is expected to increase the number of vehicles on the road, thereby causing difficulty in mobility. Moreover, e-bikes make cycling more accessible to a wider range of people, including those who may not be able to use traditional bikes due to physical limitations or fitness levels. The electric assistance helps riders travel longer distances and tackle hills with ease, making them a practical transportation option for urban commuting and recreational riding. Consequently, government authorities are taking favorable measures to promote the use of bicycles, which is expected to augment the market growth over the forecasted period. For example, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations (UN) declared 3rd June as World Bicycle Day to recognize the contribution of bicycles towards affordable and eco-friendly transport mechanisms. 

Rising Government Initiatives

According to the recent bicycle market outlook, government authorities are investing significantly in the development of cycling infrastructures, such as dedicated bike lanes, bike-sharing programs, and secure bike parking facilities. These infrastructural improvements make cycling safer and more convenient, encouraging more individuals to take up cycling. Moreover, the implementation of legislation and policies to promote cycling, such as bike-friendly urban planning, regulations to ensure cyclist safety, and incentives for businesses to support cycling among employees. These measures create a more supportive environment for cycling. For instance, according to a recent report published by the Observer Research Foundation, various initiatives by government bodies to provide schoolgirls bicycles have been started in West Bengal and Bihar, and the results have been praised for closing the gender gap in secondary education. Similarly, the Saboojsathi program launched by regulatory bodies in West Bengal won the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Award in 2019, under the e-governance category, on account of its social impact among school going children.  Moreover, governments of various countries offer financial incentives to encourage cycling, such as subsidies for purchasing bicycles or e-bikes, tax breaks for cyclists, and grants for cycling infrastructure projects. These incentives help to reduce the cost barrier associated with cycling. For instance, the government in Scotland introduced a scheme to distribute free bicycles to school-age children who cannot afford them.

Growing Focus on Health and Wellness

Cycling aids in improving fitness levels, strengthening muscles, and burning calories. As individuals become more health-conscious, they are turning to activities like cycling to stay active and maintain their fitness. For instance, Samagra Shiksha in Delhi has launched a wellness club to educate students in government-run schools in classes 9 through 12 about leading healthy lives. Besides this, as the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases increases, more people are turning to cycling to improve their health and reduce their risk. For instance, according to a recent report published by the World Health Federation, cardiovascular illnesses continued to afflict over half a billion people worldwide, accounting for 20.5 million deaths in 2021. As a result, bicycles find extensive applications for fitness purposes across the globe.

Growing Number of Cycling Events

The increasing inclination towards adventurous activities is inflating the adoption of bicycles in trekking and recreational events, thereby proliferating the growth of the market. Moreover, various public figures and celebrities are participating and promoting cycling, which is escalating the demand for bicycles. Moreover, these events promote health and fitness by encouraging people to set goals and train for a specific event. Participants often experience improved fitness levels and a sense of accomplishment upon completing the event. For example, according to the study done in 2022 by the Allgemeiner Deutscher Fahrrad-Club (ADFC), around 96% of the respondents said that” they rode the bikes in Germany.’’ Furthermore, as per the Irish Sports Council, in 2022, Sport Ireland allocated around €520,000 to Cycling Ireland with the aim of motivating customers to engage in a range of cycling-related activities in the country. The ultimate objective of the event was to enhance the city's acceptance of bicycles and raise awareness of them. Such awareness-raising initiatives support the bicycle market share.
