Bicycle Motors Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a negative impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era.The fuel-efficiency of bicycles is notably driving the bicycle motors market growth, although factors such as high price of electric bicycles may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the bicycle motors industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Bicycle Motors Market Driver

Fuel-efficiency of bicycles is a major factor driving the global bicycle motors market share growth. Fuel prices have increased significantly in the past few years and continue to fluctuate. The rise in fuel prices has resulted in a rise in the adoption of electric bicycles and pedelecs as a daily mode of transport. With the rise in fuel prices, the demand for battery-powered bicycles has also increased. Bicycles are equipped with motors that aid in managing the speed better and make it easier for riders to negotiate different or difficult terrain such as mountain areas, overpasses, and bad roads. Many people in Europe still prefer to cycle to work, especially as many governments in the region have constructed bicycle-friendly streets. A growing number of commuters in China are using battery-operated bicycles. Thus, the rise in fuel prices is resulting in the increased adoption of electric bicycles, in turn driving the growth of the global bicycle motors market.

Key Bicycle Motors Market Trend

Rise in the adoption of DIY kits is another factor supporting the global bicycle motors market share growth. In the past, the availability of motors was limited to a few costly options. However, at present, buyers can choose from a vast range of consumer DIY products. Buyers can buy the DIY kit, which is in a dismantled form, and then can reassemble the motor themselves with the help of some household tools, according to the instruction provided in the kit. These kits do not require the rider to have any expertise in motors, and the motors can be reassembled easily by anyone. Thus, providing an added advantage for both buyers and sellers, as they save time and cost.Several bicycle motor kits are available in the market, which are affordable and provide more power than factory-made motors. Due to their wide availability, users can choose various kits depending on their needs and preferences. For instance, companies like Bafang and GNG provide DIY motor kit. Due to such reasons, the demand for the market will continue to grow during the forecast period.

Key Bicycle Motors Market Challenge

High price of electric bicycles will be a major challenge for the global bicycle motors market share growth during the forecast period. Although electric bicycles are environment-friendly and offer low-cost transportation when compared with other automobiles, the higher cost of electric bicycles compared with conventional bicycles hinders the growth of the electric bicycle market. The most significant technological challenges faced by electric bicycle manufacturers are the cost and performance of components and materials. The type of motor used in electric bicycles also affects the price of an electric bicycle. The more advanced the motor, the higher the cost of the bicycle. Most electric bicycle motors have a power range of 250 W-750 W. The type of motor that is needed depends mostly on the type of riding and the terrain on which the bicycle will be used. However, there are speed limitations with the use of a motor in bicycles. For instance, the US does not allow an electric bicycle to have a motor that provides more than 750 W.Thus, the motor capacity leads to the additional cost of the bicycle. Essentially, this will hinder the growth of the market.

This bicycle motors market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.

COVID Impact and Recovery Analysis

In 2020, owing to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, cycling and racing events have temporarily been canceled to prevent the community transmission of the disease through social gatherings. Nationwide lockdowns imposed across countries in the region have reduced the sale and production of bicycles. Relaxation of lockdowns during the second half of 2020 has triggered higher demand for bicycles across the region. However, reduced production and supply chain disruptions for bicycle components have led to a supply-demand imbalance in 2020. After the crisis, the demand for bicycles will increase, which, in turn, will drive competition among bicycle manufacturers and lead them to offer several differentiated products. This is expected to increase the adoption of bicycle motors during the forecast period.

What are the Revenue-generating Type Segments in the Bicycle Motors Market?

To gain further insights on the market contribution of various segments Request for a FREE sample

The bicycle motors market share growth by the hub motor segment will be significant during the forecast period. The hub motor holds a large share of aftermarket fitment, as it is cheaper than other motors and very effective as an upgrade. The hub motor is also recommended for all-wheel drive (AWD) electric bicycles as it is easier to install and cost-effective. The hub motor is the most common motor type used in electric bicycles today. As the crank motor was expensive, the hub motor was developed as a cheaper alternative. Today, hub motors have been developed to provide greater efficiency. Because the hub motor is placed in the hub, the center part of the wheel, it retrofits any kind of bicycle. As the motor is sealed, its maintenance cost is low compared with the other kind. For all the factors mentioned above, the demand for hub motors will continue to be high during the forecast period.
