The electric scooter and motorcycle market is projected to grow at a CAGR 29.78% rate from 2021 to 2026. Increasing investments by governments across the globe to develop charging infrastructure and incentives offered to buyers will create opportunities for OEMs to expand their revenue stream and geographical presence.
E-motorcycle segment is estimated to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period. Earlier, manufacturers were focusing on developing e-scooters/mopeds as they have a design more suitable to incorporate the electric propulsion system. However, e-scooters/mopeds have range and performance constraints; also, they serve the limited purpose of short distance commuting only. With e-motorcycles, users could serve different purposes such as cruising, racing, off-roading, and commuting, which would increase their demand in the future.
The European market is expected to witness the fastest growth, followed by North America and Asia Pacific. Europe comprises developed economies such as France, Germany, Spain, and the UK. The region is home to many leading players such as Energica Motor Company, KTM, BMW, GOVECS, and Piaggio. Infrastructural developments and industrialization in developed economies have opened new avenues, creating several opportunities for OEMs. The implementation of new technologies and establishment of new government regulations are driving this market in the region. Belgium is expected to lead the European market due to the subsidies offered to buyers on purchase of new electric two-wheelers. Europe also has increased demand for performance e-motorcycles, which manufacturers such as Energica and KTM have identified. Thus, the European region would witness faster growth.
Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest market. The market growth in the region can be attributed to the rising demand for greener transportation along with several initiatives by private organizations as well as governments of the countries. China’s rapidly growing economy is driving the expansion of advanced technologies to improve electrification in the country. China is expected to spend approximately USD 2.4 billion by 2020 to improve the charging facility infrastructure in the country. The Indian government is taking initiatives such as FAME-II, offering subsidies and tax exemptions to buyers to promote electric two-wheelers in the country.
