Manufacturers have heavily invested in R&D to develop advanced e-bikes that cause zero-emission and has high battery capacity. Electric power is the prime source of power in e-bikes as it completely replaces the IC engine by battery power. E-bikes consist of less moving parts; hence they are light in weight, have low maintenance, and are more efficient compared to conventional bikes. In recent years companies are also manufacturing electric pedal cycles, which is another name for pedal-assist e-bikes. In pedal assist, bike power is activated by peddling instead of throttling. These are proving to be beneficial for the cyclists, especially in the hilly area and on rough terrain, as it eases the effort of the cyclist to pedal hard. Increasing adoption of pedal-assist bikes is expected to drive the E-Bike market over the forecast period. The high cost of lithium-ion and nickel-metal hydride batteries are prime factors restraining the growth of electric bikes over the forecast period.


“Stringent Emission Norms Imposed By Government is Expected to Drive the Market Over the Forecast Period

Conventional bikes cause a high amount of air pollution. Rising greenhouse gases is one of the major concerns for the environment globally; hence various governments across the globe have imposed stringent emission norms on manufacturing companies to develop environment-friendly vehicles. Governments in developing countries are coming up with multiple subsidies such as tax exemptions on the purchase of electric bikes. Various tax exemptions given by the government are attracting more consumers for the purchase of e-bikes, which in turn, is anticipated to drive the E-Bike market during the forecast period.

“ Rising Demand for the Lithium-Ion Batteries is Expected to Propel the Growth of the Market During the Forecast Period.”

Rising demand for lithium-ion batteries is anticipated to drive the market over the forecast period. Less life span and constant maintenance of lead-acid batteries are some of the significant factors fueling the growth of lithium-ion batteries. Heavy investment by manufacturing companies to develop an advanced lithium-ion battery that has low maintenance and high range battery capacity is anticipated to drive the market over the forecast period.


By Propulsion Type Analysis

“Throttle Type Segment is Expected to Hold the Largest Market Share During the Forecast ”

Based on the propulsion type, the electric bike market is segmented into pedal assist and throttle type. The throttle type segment holds the largest market share and is anticipated to maintain dominance over the forecast period. Increasing air pollution amid the use of conventional bikes have fuelled the demand for environment-friendly e-bikes. In developing countries, governments have imposed norms to replace conventional bikes by 2025. For example, stringent norms have been set up in Europe to reduce CO2 emission by 20% by 2025. India has a large number of conventional bikes; hence it has plans to implement BS-VI in April 2020 in order to reduce emissions. Key manufacturers have heavily invested in R&D to develop advanced throttle assist electric bikes, which have low maintenance and high battery capacity. Increasing fuel prices and growing inclination of consumers towards e-bikes are expected to drive the throttle type segment over the forecast period.

The pedal assists segment is also expected to show good growth in the electric bike market over the forecast period. Various taxi service provides looking forward to adopting pedal-assist bikes, especially in developing and developed cities. This is expected to reduce traffic congestion and lower emissions. The growing inclination of consumers towards cost-effective transport is also one of the reasons which are increasing the growth of the pedal-assist segment over the forecast period. Increasing inclination towards e-bikes, especially for adventure sports, is one of the prime factors which is fueling the demand for pedal-assist bikes.

By Battery Type Analysis

“Lithium-Ion Battery Segment is Expected to Dominate the Market Share During the Forecast ”

Based on the battery type E-bike market is segmented into lead-acid, lithium-ion, nickel-metal hydride, and others. Lithium-Ion battery segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period. Lithium-Ion batteries provide high range and less weight compared to lead-acid batteries. Low maintenance of lithium-ion batteries is also one of the major reason which is fueling the growth of this segment globally.

The lead-acid batteries segment is anticipated to decline over the forecast period amid its low range capacity and high weight. Various governments have imposed stringent regulations over the use of lead-acid batteries as they release lead from PRC into the environment. This release of lead in groundwater is proving hazardous to human health. Many key players are investing heavily in R&D to develop an environment-friendly lead-acid battery along with less weight and low cost.


Asia-Pacific is anticipated to dominate the electric bike system market over the forecast period.  China is the dominant player in the Electric Bike market in this region and globally amid the largest market share in terms of volume. China is anticipated to hold 70% of the e-bikes market globally amid high sales and production of e-bikes. Around 80% of e-bikes sold in Europe are imported from China; this is also one of the factors which are maintaining the dominance of Asia-Pacific in the E-Bike industry. The increasing disposable income of consumers is also one of the reasons which is leading to a wider adoption of e-bikes in this region.
