The global BMX bike market size was valued at USD 289.7 million in 2021 and is projected to grow from USD 303.2 million in 2022 to USD 420.7 million by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with BMX bike experiencing higher-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a growth of 4.66% in 2020 as compared to 2019.

BMX is one of the most popular bike categories for bicycle motocross. These off-road and on-road sports bicycles are used for stunt riding and racing. The bikes are also well-known among children's bike categories and the younger population. Therefore, they are offered in many sizes as per the rider's age and height for an improved and safe riding experience. Additionally, their lightweight nature provides greater riding efficiency. The growing popularity of bicycle motocross sports drives the demand for these types of bikes worldwide.


Limitations on Public Transportation to Boost Demand for BMX Bicycles

The COVID-19 pandemic shrank the life of main economies by limiting the pastimes and discouraging the use of public transport such as buses and railways. The populace is shifting toward bicycles, one of the most basic forms of mobility. Therefore, in 2020, the overall bicycle market witnessed a boom worldwide.

The growing inclination toward personal fitness and mobility has caused acceleration. With restrictions on movement and access to gyms or sports arenas, people have taken up cycling as an alternate way of exercising. Social distancing norms and protection against the virus have further led to the use of personal modes of transportation. Such factors positively impacted the market globally during the pandemic period and are anticipated to impel market growth in the post-pandemic period.

Upward Trend for Bicycle Infrastructure Improvement to Drive Market Growth

The increasing trend for improving cycling infrastructure and the growing number of active BMX racing tracks around the world positively influence the growth of the global market. For instance, in September 2021, Irish local authorities announced around USD 233.39 million for bicycle and pedestrian facilities, almost three times more than the funding for urban transport.

Therefore, the increase in public spending on the development of bicycle infrastructure is expected to drive the BMX bicycle market growth. Moreover, the growing popularity of bike motocross sports due to the increasing number of BMX sports clubs worldwide and their promotional strategies to attract more members are likely to impact the market positively. Furthermore, the growing trend among the health-conscious population to use these bikes for fitness and commuting activities is expected to drive market growth.


Implementation of Favorable Government Policies to Propel Market Growth

Governments worldwide are taking initiatives to tackle car traffic congestion and using green energy for transportation. This has complemented the global bicycle market expansion. Companies across the globe are actively involved in product development and other strategies to reach the market and remain competitive in the global market. For instance, BMX bicycle manufacturers such as G.T. Bicycles, Mongoose, Haro, Redline Bicycles, Elite BMX, and others have introduced several BMX bicycle-related concepts, creating significant growth in the global as well as domestic market. Similarly, Haro Bikes expanded its U.K. dealer network by licensing IMG Distribution Ltd. to sell and new product launches of its bikes to clients across the U.K.

Governments have taken steps to support cycling infrastructure, which has also led to the growth of the bicycle motocross market. Additionally, in 2018, the Indian government launched the National Public Bicycle Program to support cycling infrastructure across the country. These government policies will favor global BMX bicycle market expansion over the study period.

Product Demand to Rise Due to Growth in Cycling as a Recreational and Fitness Activity

Consumers today are more inclined to their physical fitness. They are more likely to use bicycles to move from one place to another. Most people invest their time in various fitness activities & sports activities such as running, cycling, swimming, and yoga, to stay active, fit, and healthy daily. Moreover, cycling is considered a low-impact, healthy activity with many mental and physical benefits such as building endurance, cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and relieving stress.

Therefore, the growing improvement in bicycling infrastructure as a fitness and recreational activity is supporting the global BMX bike market growth. Further, many countries are more active in recreational activities, including BMX racing and general cycling racing runs for some causes. Similarly, rising awareness/craze for sports or BMX among kids propels the market demand.

Additionally, rising dedicated bike tracks or grounds for BMX racing create customer awareness to buy their product. In addition, brand ambassador, different marketing strategies of companies, and recent innovations in electric BMX are other factors propelling the market growth.


High Cost Associated with BMX Bikes to Limit the Growth of this Market

The high cost of BMX bikes is a prominent aspect hindering the growth of the global bicycle industry. Components, tires, frames, and technology costs make bikes more expensive than traditional bikes in the current scenario. Therefore, consumers find conventional bikes more suitable than electric bikes. Moreover, classic BMX bikes are gaining popularity worldwide due to various advantages such as low prices and easy transport from one place to another without the need for extra effort.

Moreover, a limited set of group interests in specific countries for bicycle motocross hamper the market growth. Furthermore, the development of e-bikes in China is high owing to the availability of suitable infrastructure. Still, the change is limited in other nations due to the unavailability of suitable infrastructure. This unavailability of appropriate infrastructure increases product costs and the prices of replacing or installing new products on bikes. Hence, these aspects hinder the global market growth.
