Key Market Trends

Increasing Inclination Towards E-Bicyles

As a solution to congestion in cities, CO2 reduction, and healthier lifestyles, the governments of technological advanced Asian countries such as China and Japan, are encouraging the use of E-Bicycles in their respective countries, so as to promote the greater use of e-bicyles in their country.

Under China's traffic regulations, anyone aged 16 or older can ride an electric bike. As per the data from the National Bureau of Statistics in 2018, there were 980 million people between the ages of 16 and 65 in China at the end of last year, thus implying there is a huge potential customer base for e-bikes. 

Thereby substantiating this factor, startups such as Star Drive, are developing those e-bikes, which are equipped with smart batteries and application platforms using big data. The company is aiming to establish a service ecosystem covering everything from rentals and purchases to charging and battery replacements.

Continuation of Increasing Demand for Bicycles in India

Cycling is, and has been, a major mode of mobility in India. Traffic surveys in India show that cycle trips account for more than 15% of trips in most towns and even in a large city, such as Delhi, Mumbai, and others, as cycling accounts for over 10% of trips in these cities (as per the report published by All India Cycle Manufacturers’ Association (AICMA).

Moreover, bicycles play a major role in enabling the livelihoods of the urban poor by providing a cost-effective transport option. In recent years, health and environmental quality, as well concept of smart cities have emerged as the new drivers of supporting cycling activity, but growth due to these drivers has been constrained by the cycle-unfriendly environment and infrastructure in the Indian cities.

Therefore, in order to increase the market share for bicycles in India, in November 2019, the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) had set up a 'development council’. This council has been set up for “vision planning in design, engineering, and manufacturing of lighter, smarter, value-added, safe, and faster premium bicycles, which are comparable with global standards for exports and domestic market.
