The global electric scooter market size stood at USD 17.73 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach USD 19.43 billion in 2024 to USD 50.15 billion by 2032 at a CAGR of 12.6% during the 2024-2032 period. The Asia Pacific dominated the electric scooter market with a share of 83.08% in 2023.

E-scooter is a motorized scooter powered by an electric motor. Conventional scooters require gas or fuel to operate, whereas the EV does not require fuel. The motor and battery are linked in e-scooters, and the battery is charged by plugging into an electric charging station or a power source. The charged battery generates the motion to push the two-wheeler forward. These scooters are environment-friendly, fuel-efficient, battery-powered, and simple to use. The growing need for sustainable urban mobility and modernized transportation infrastructure drives the shift from conventional to an electric mode of transportation. This type of scooter is anticipated to improve energy security and also air quality. The rising demand for fuel-efficient vehicles coupled with increasing concerns over greenhouse gas and carbon emissions is expected to increase the adoption of e-mopeds.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a mixed impact on the global electric scooter market. While initial disruptions in manufacturing and supply chains led to temporary slowdowns, the market gradually rebounded as restrictions eased. Increased demand for personal mobility solutions amid concerns about public transportation safety drove the adoption of electric scooters. However, economic uncertainties and reduced consumer spending posed challenges, affecting market growth to some extent.

Electric Scooter Market Trends

Government Initiatives for Electrification and Increase in Adoption of E-Scooters to Boost the Market Growth

OEMs will be able to expand their revenue stream and geographical presence as governments across the globe increasing their investments in charging infrastructure and offer incentives to consumers. For instance, the Indian government launched the FAME scheme (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and EV) in 2019 with a budget outlay of USD 100 billion to support 7,000 e-buses, 500,000 e-three wheelers, 55,000 e-passenger vehicles, and a million e-two wheelers. As of now, about 124,415 vehicles have benefited under the scheme.

Additionally, as customers move toward the adoption of EVs, fluctuating fuel prices have decreased sales of gasoline-powered vehicles. Consumers are abandoning the gasoline-powered vehicle segment due to the rising fuel prices, which coincides with significant growth in sales of these scooters, primarily in India, Hong Kong, and the Netherlands. Norway is expected to phase out the sale of all fossil-fuel-powered vehicles over the next few years to meet its 2025 target of 100% renewable energy.

Electric Scooter Market Growth Factors

Increasing Emphasis on Sustainable Urban Mobility Solutions to Boost Market Growth

As cities worldwide face challenges, such as traffic congestion, air pollution, and limited parking spaces, there is a growing recognition of the need for alternative modes of transportation that are environmentally friendly and efficient. Electric scooters offer a compelling solution to these challenges, as clean energy sources power them and produce zero emissions during operation. Electric scooters are well-suited for short-distance travel in urban areas, offering commuters a convenient and cost-effective way to navigate crowded streets and reach their destinations quickly. With the rise of urbanization and the growing population in cities, there is a corresponding increase in demand for compact and agile transportation options that can easily maneuver through congested traffic.

The proliferation of ride-sharing and rental services has contributed to the popularity of electric scooters, making them accessible to a wider range of users. These services provide a convenient and flexible transportation solution for users who may not want to own a scooter outright or prefer to use it for occasional trips. Technological advancements in battery technology and electric motor efficiency have significantly improved the performance and range of electric scooters, making them more attractive to consumers. With longer battery life and faster charging times, electric scooters offer a viable alternative to traditional gasoline-powered vehicles, further driving market growth.


Lack of Charging Infrastructure May Hamper Market Growth

Lack of charging infrastructure will be the largest obstacle to the expansion of the e-scooter sector. The most important consideration for any user before purchasing an electric two-wheeler is the ease with which that vehicle can be charged anywhere and at any time. Most emerging countries, unlike developed countries, lack the required charge stations. As a preliminary solution, the manufacturers are developing their charging infrastructure network, especially in the developing countries; however, participation of government as well as private investors is also equally necessary to boost the adoption of such vehicles across the world. To expand the e-two-wheeler industry, users will need an extensive charging infrastructure network that allows them to travel long distances without worrying about finding a charging station.

Electric Scooter Market Segmentation Analysis

By Battery Type Analysis

Lead-Acid Battery Type Dominates Market

Based on Battery type, the market is bifurcated into Lead Acid batteries, Li-ion batteries.

The Lead-Acid battery segment dominated the market in 2023 due to the benefits of the Lead-Acid battery, such as durability, damage tolerance, and low cost. However, the adoption of SLA batteries is expected to decline in the coming years as they are large and drain quickly, even not carrying significant loads.

The lithium-ion battery segment witnessed low demand in 2023; however, it is expected to gain momentum and grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. In 2023, the Lithium-ion Battery segment accounted considerable market share. Due to better performance, high charging-discharging efficiency, high charge density, and lightweight performance.

By Voltage Type Analysis
