By cycling, people could avoid massive traffic congestions and reach their destination comparatively faster. These factors are anticipated to contribute toward the growth of the bicycle market over the coming years.

Elevated Adoption of e-Bikes in European Countries

In addition to government laws and regulations that implement the provision of subsidies for the adoption of e-bikes, European countries such as Germany, Denmark, and the Netherlands have appropriate cycling infrastructure. 54,000 e-bikes were sold in 2015 with an impressive 24% growth as compared to the previous year according to the Dutch industry-association, which took sales to around 276,000 e-bikes, excluding speed ones. The Netherlands accounted for 20% of the overall sales of electric bicycles in Europe.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

While the COVID-19 outbreak has been sending shockwaves throughout the cycling industry, it looks like the pandemic will have an extensive impact on new bicycle sales in the near term.

The bicycle market, along with the new sales of bicycle accessories and parts, is poised to be measurably impacted by the global pandemic. Recovery however can be expected through the last quarter of 2020, or latest, by the first quarter of 2021. Manufacturers can target the European market for increased sales and profits.
