Historical Vs Future Market Outlook
Bicycles have largely come along with their accessories such as horns, kickstands, saddles, bar grips, etc. Earlier, these pre-installed products did not provide any option for customization as compared to today’s customized products. Bicycle accessories plays a vital role in the customization of bicycles. Cycling can have a substantial positive impact on the world’s future, saving US$ 24 trillion dollars over the next thirty-five years, and dramatically improving quality of life for the world’s rapidly urbanizing population.
Growing use of bicycles in trekking and recreational activities, coupled with an increasing number of cycling events, will surge demand for sports bicycles over the forecast period. There has been a rise in number of biking expeditions to rough and tough terrains such as steep mountain ranges in the last few years. Growing popularity of such expeditions is anticipated to drive demand for bicycles, which, in turn, is expected to propel growth of the global bicycle accessories market over the period of assessment from 2021 to 2031.
Meanwhile, the mountain bicycles segment is also expected to grow significantly over the forecast period, as consumers, particularly millennials, continue to opt for mountain bicycling as a form of leisure and adventure. Establishment of new mountain bicycling circuits coupled with growing media coverage for such events is expected to further fuel segment growth.
Growth of the electric segment can be attributable to the fact that, electric bicycles are easy to operate. Electric bicycles can also ensure faster journeys as compared to their conventional counterparts. Additionally, latest batteries can offer higher capacities and longer life despite a smaller size. Such maintenance-free batteries add to the ease of use of electric bicycles. According to Persistence Market Research’s analysis, bicycle accessory sales have increased at 4.8% CAGR from 2016 to 2020.
As of 2018, South East Asia and Pacific was one among the prominent markets for bicycles; sales are expected to increase in the region significantly over the forecast period, due to surge in leisure and spare-time activities, and increasing concerns regarding health.
The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered significant demand surge for bicycles and e-Bikes, as people look for personalized and eco-friendly transport options. However, shortage of raw material and components has meant that bicycle makers are struggling to fulfill surging demand. In addition, some bicycle producers are also temporarily halting production around the world as they struggle to get parts from China. These are signs of how the coronavirus outbreak is creating a domino effect in straining the bicycle supply chain.
Shortages of China-made parts have already begun to ripple through the bicycle supply chain. Southeast Asian and Taiwan manufacturers are temporarily idling assembly lines because of problems getting parts from China. According to Persistence Market Research’s analysis, the bicycle accessories market will expand at close to 7% CAGR from 2021 to 2031.

Where Does the U.S. Bicycle Accessories Market Stand?
U.S. bike imports have been steadily increasing each month since May, but the industry still has a long way to go to recover from a slow start to the year and the skyrocketing retail demand for bicycles during the U.S. COVID-19 pandemic. Bike imports in July were up 35.6% in units, to 1.9 million bikes, and 26.6% in dollars, to US$ 151 million, as compared to the same month in 2019, new figures from the U.S. Department of Commerce show.

There will be reduction in prices, wider product portfolio, and long-term supply relations with manufacturing companies and sales channel stakeholders in order to build a competitive-edge in the market. E-bikes such as Pedelecs are set to witness considerable adoption over the coming years, predominantly steered by the development of low-cost e-bikes in the Asia Pacific region.
