The global electric bike kit market size was valued at USD 54.33 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 66.21 billion in 2024 to USD 184.34 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 13.7% during the forecast period of 2024-2032. The Asia-Pacific dominated the electric bike kit market with a share of 74.71% in 2023.


An electric bike kit refers to a set of components and accessories that can be added to a conventional bicycle to convert it into an electric bike (e-bike) or to manufacture an e-bike. The primary components in the kit typically includes an electric motor, a battery pack, a controller, and various wiring and mounting accessories.


The increasing interest of DIY enthusiasts in building their own e-bikes fuels the demand for the market. However, the lack of standardized components and compatibility between different kits and bicycle models challenges the market growth. The advancement in battery and motor technology is attributed to boosting the development of the market over the forecasted period.


The COVID-19 pandemic spurred a surge in e-bike interest driven by a shift towards cost-effective transportation and outdoor exercise. Lockdowns and economic uncertainty led individuals to seek affordable options, including DIY kits. With more time spent at home, DIY projects gained traction, gaining interest among consumers to build their own e-bikes. These factors combined to fuel the adoption of electric bike kits during and after the pandemic period.


Electric Bike Kit Market Trends


Trend of DIY E-Bike Conversions, Offering Personalization, and Affordability Fuels Market Growth


One ongoing trend in the global market is the continued popularity of DIY (Do-It-Yourself) conversions. Several cycling enthusiasts and consumers interested in electric bikes opt for these types of kits to convert their existing bicycles into electric ones. DIY e-bike conversions allow users to customize their electric bikes according to their preferences. This includes choosing specific components, designs, and features and providing a personalized and unique riding experience.


Electric bike kits often offer a more affordable option compared to purchasing a new electric bike. This cost-effectiveness appeals to consumers who want the benefits of electric assistance without the higher price tag of a pre-built e-bike. Thus, the growing community of DIY enthusiasts and tinkerers in the cycling space contributes to the popularity and growth of the electric bike kit industry. Online forums, communities, and resources provide support and guidance for those interested in undertaking their own electric bike conversions, fuelling the market growth.


In June 2023, GBoost introduced the GBoost V8 kit, designed to be easily installed on any bicycle within a mere 10 minutes. The electric bike conversion kit is available in three different battery configurations. The most affordable option includes a compact 250-watt-hour battery pack and is priced at EUR 980, approximately equivalent to USD 1,048.

Electric Bike Kit Market Growth Factors


Rising Development in the E-bike Related Component Technologies Advances the Market Growth


Advancements and innovation in technology play a crucial role in driving the market growth of electric bike kits by enhancing the overall performance, efficiency, and user experience. Improvements in battery technology, such as the development of high-capacity and lightweight lithium-ion batteries, have significantly increased the range and efficiency of e-bikes. Longer battery life and faster charging times make e-bikes more practical and appealing to consumers. Technological advancements in electric motor design and manufacturing have led to more efficient and compact motors. High-torque and low-noise motors enhance the overall riding experience, providing smoother acceleration and better control.


In July 2023, Stromer introduced a battery utilizing solid-state technology specifically designed for e-bikes. The Stromer Solid-State Ceramic Battery boasts a charging time that is approximately ten times faster than traditional lithium batteries.


As technology continues to advance, electric bicycle kits are likely to become more sophisticated, user-friendly, and efficient, further driving market growth by attracting a broader range of consumers. The continuous evolution of technology contributes to the ongoing improvement of e-bike performance and features, making them more appealing and accessible to a larger audience.


RESTRAINING FACTORS


Limited Variety and Customization Options Restrain the Market Demand


The market for e-bikes is characterized by a wide array of consumer preferences, encompassing various factors such as design, performance, range, and specific features. Each individual may prioritize different aspects of an e-bike based on their personal preferences, lifestyle, and intended usage. For instance, some consumers may prioritize sleek and modern designs, while others may prioritize off-road capabilities or long battery range for commuting purposes.


However, despite the growing popularity of e-bikes, there exists a potential challenge stemming from a lack of variety in electric bicycle kits. These kits are essential components that enable the conversion of conventional bicycles into electric ones, providing an affordable and flexible option for consumers who may not want to invest in a pre-built e-bike or who prefer to customize their ride. When there is a limited selection of electric bicycle kits available in the market, potential customers may encounter difficulty in finding an option that meets their specific requirements and aligns with their preferences.  Thus, the lack of variety and customization options restrains the market growth.
