Electric Bike Kit Market by Battery

The Asia-Pacific electric bike kit industry is the rapid urbanization observed in many countries. In countries like China, India, and Japan, expansion has led to a surge in demand for efficient and eco-friendly traveling options, positioning electric bikes as a desirable choice. The Asia-Pacific region has witnessed a significant influx in suppliers and manufactures of electric bike kit offering a diverse range of conversion kits to meet this uprising in electric bike kit market trends. Moreover, the affordability and versatility of electric bike conversion kits make them particularly appealing in this market, allowing individuals to retrofit their existing bicycles into electric-powered vehicles.

For instance, the Chinese government has been continuously promoting electric bikes as a means to direct air pollution and congestion issues in metropolitan areas. This has led to the creation of the demand for electric bike kits, enabling bike-sharing companies to retrofit their fleets with electric assistance, making them more accessible and user-friendly for a broader audience.

Additionally, India has also witnessed a rise in electric bicycle adoption, especially in closely populated urban centers. Local companies have capitalized on this electric bike kit trend by offering conversion kits for electrification, allowing individuals to transform their manual bicycles into electric-powered alternatives. The affordability of these kits has made electric biking a viable option for a diverse demographic, contributing to the overall growth of the electric bike kit industry in the region.

Growth in the prices of bikes and government policies to encourage the use of electric bicycles

Governments of various countries are taking initiatives to reduce their carbon footprints by encouraging use of small electric vehicles such as electric bicycles, bikes, and scooters, owing to increase in awareness toward hazardous effects of using vehicles running on fossil fuels. Moreover, governments are constructing bicycle friendly streets, which encourage individuals to opt for bicycles as a critical mode of commuting.

Furthermore, to encourage the use of electric bicycles, governments worldwide are supporting the purchase of e-bicycles in terms of tax credits and incentives. For instance, in September 2020, the government of India announced a subsidy scheme in the state of Gujarat to encourage use of e-bicycles and e-rickshaws.

In addition, in October 2020, the U.S. Department of Interior statement announced new rules governing electric bicycle use in the U.S. The regulations have been agreed upon and applied by the Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, and Bureau of Reclamation. The new regulations allow public land managers to provide e-bicycles access to bicycle trails. Furthermore, infrastructure facilities such as guarded bicycle parking facilities, construction of more bicycle (express) routes, and establishment of battery charging stations in many countries by governments significantly boost adoption of electric bicycles by users, thereby propelling the market growth.

Rise in interest in cycling as fitness & recreational activity

The majority of individuals invest their time in performing various fitness activities such as cycling, yoga, swimming, and running to remain healthy, fit, and active in daily life. Presently, consumers have become more health-conscious due to work-related stress and a sedentary lifestyle. For instance, according to the Spanish Bicycle Industry Association AMBE statistics, electric bikes and bicycles in Spain reached a record 1,571,368 units sold in 2021, and sector turnover up by 10.76%. The most significant growth came from the urban bicycle category registering a 45.1% hike compared to 2020, owing to increased demand for e-bikes as sports equipment among youth. Cycling is considered a healthy and low- 76 impact activity, which has many physical and mental health benefits, such as it builds endurance, alleviates stress, strengthens muscles, and improving cardiovascular health. In addition, an increase in consumer preference for recreational and adventure activities has created the demand for electric bicycles, thereby fostering market growth.
