Bike sharing is a shared transport service in which conventional bikes or electric bikes are made available for shared use to individuals on a short-term basis for a price or free. Users may pick up bicycles around the city from multiple docked or dock-less stations and return them at another same system. Docks are special bike racks that lock the bike, and only release it by computer control, while dock-less bike share does not require a docking station, bikes can be parked within a defined bike rack or along the sidewalk. Bike sharing provides both locals and tourists an easy, low-cost, efficient means of transportation around cities. Bike sharing systems are often facilitated through mobile applications or membership cards, enabling users to locate and unlock bikes, track their usage, and make payments. The bike sharing market statistics has witnessed significant growth in recent years, driven by increasing urbanization, a focus on sustainable transportation options, and the popularity of shared mobility services.

Bike Sharing Market by Bike Type

Increase in inclusion of e-bikes in the sharing fleet

There is an increase in demand for e-bikes across the globe owing to their fast & flexible operations and zero carbon emissions. In addition, the rise in consumer inclination toward the usage of e-bikes as a cost-effective & eco-friendly transport solution adds up to bike sharing expansion. Moreover, an e-bike is the preferred option, as it better fulfils the requirement for higher speed in short-distance commuting, when compared to a pedal operated bike. Features such as higher speed, more convenience, effortless driving, and variable motor power as per the road conditions make e-bikes more preferred for sharing purposes.

Furthermore, governments across the world have taken various initiatives to promote the usage of e-bikes. For instance, the majority of the governments across the world look forward to converting fuel vehicles into electric vehicles to tackle environmental issues. Furthermore, several bike sharing providers have started focusing on expanding their fleet of e-bikes to sustain the growth in competition in the bike sharing industry. For instance, in April 2023, Nike, Lyft, and the Portland Bureau of Transportation made a joint announcement to expand their bike fleet by adding 500 bikes. In addition, bike-sharing startups such as Mobike, Hellobike and Ofo announced plans to add electric bikes to its fleet. Increase in adoption of e-bikes in bike sharing services is propelling the market growth.

Rise in bike vandalism and theft

Theft and vandalism of bikes have been a significant issue around the world, where dock-less operations have grown exponentially. Several dock-less bike-sharing service providers have reported the instance regarding the theft of the dock-less bikes. For instance, Chinese bike share startup Mobike has admitted that more than 200,000 of its rent-by-app bicycles were lost to theft or vandalism in 2019.

Moreover, the growth in theft and vandalism of electric bikes force market players to pull out their operations in several countries across the world. For instance, in November 2021, Nextbike announced that it is anticipated to shut down the scheme in the UK after months of vandalism, theft, and threats against staff. A total of 260 bikes have been scrapped due to vandalism. Furthermore, in September 2021, Chandigarh public bike-sharing system was plagued by vandalism and theft since its launch in the city. According to reports, a total of 193 bikes were damaged, and in at least four instances, users even took the bikes to their homes. This has resulted in huge losses for the companies, which in turn, hinder growth for the bike sharing market trend.

Increase in government initiatives for the development of bike-sharing infrastructure

Various governments across the world are offering subsidies to service providers for developing stations and expanding their reach to many commuters. For instance, in 2018, Chinese Municipal governments subsidized the Public Bike Sharing Program (PBSP) development to encourage non-motorized transport and offer convenient, flexible, and low-cost mobility options. These services are majorly used in urban areas due to the rise in traffic congestion and increased fuel prices.

In addition, the government authorities have provided incentives for the adoption of environment-friendly transport solutions including bicycles and electric bikes, owing to growth in concerns related to the rise in environmental pollution. Moreover, the government has set up the bike charging infrastructure, dedicated bike lanes and parking zones. For instance, in June 2020, Pittsburgh unveiled a 10-year plan to significantly expand bike infrastructure in the city by more than 120 miles of new trails, bicycle lanes and other street improvements. Increase in government initiatives for the development of reliable bike-sharing infrastructure along with the proliferation of smart cities across the globe are anticipated to offer lucrative growth opportunities for bike sharing market.
