Growth Factors

Rising demand for fuel-efficient vehicles across the globe coupled with increasing concern for alarming rise in the global pollution are some of the major factors that drives the market growth of electric scooters over the upcoming years. As a result, governments of various regions have issued stringent emission norms to curb the rate of rising rate of carbon in the environment. For instance, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of USA proposed a rule in order to revise the existing national Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission standards for light trucks and passenger cars.

Similarly, European Commission has also proposed strict measure on the passenger vehicle emission. This is majorly due to 70% out of the total emission is from transport sector and passenger cars are the major contributor among road transports in the rise the GHG gas.

Furthermore, rapid urbanization along with rising population density particularly in the developing nations contribute prominently for the significant rise in demand for electric scooters in these regions. Moreover, it is an affordable and environment-friendly mode of commutation that again propels the market growth during the forecast time frame.

Urban mobility trend such as shared bikes, electric scooters, and dockless bikes have gained significant momentum in the past few years. Electric scooters reduce the overall travelling time as well as is more convenient for short and long-distance commutation. Hence, the preference for electric scooters are rising rapidly even greater compared to electric cars during the upcoming years.

However, sudden outbreak of coronavirus in the year 2020 has impacted the automotive sales badly along with several other industries owing to disruption in the supply chain structure across the globe. Nonetheless, diversity in the e-scooter models and on-going research on electric scooters for improving its performance propels the market growth for electric scooters over the forthcoming period.

Product Insights

Retro electric scooter product segment has held revenue share of over 53% in the 2022, owing to increasing maintenance and fuel costs are posing electric scooters as attractive transportation alternative. In addition, electric transportation is becoming an eco-friendly alternative with increasing pressure to limit the carbon footprints. However, the demand for retro electric scooter has witnessed a sluggish growth over the past two years. This is attributed to the introduction of lightweight folding electric scooters also called kick or dockless scooters. Retro electric scooter segment will continue to maintain a dominant position, but the majority of growth is expected to come from folding and standing/self-balancing electric scooter.

The introduction of the next-generation technology and the need for product differentiation have propelled the growth of the folding scooters market. One of the key factors boosting the demand for this type of scooters includes the lack of parking space in metro cities. These scooters have gained prominence in the U.S. as they are free from the initial restrictions of strength and weight. Additionally, the need to revolutionize the increased traffic and mobility has impelled vendors to manufacture folding electric scooters. These scooters offer flexibility with minimum energy consumption and can be easily folded to the size of a suitcase.
