A combination of various macro-economic and micro-economic factors continues to shape the global electric bikes market. Consistent advancements in technology have enabled the development of comfortable, environment-friendly electric bikes. Demand for electric bikes is also positively influenced by increasing awareness among consumers about the need to reduce their carbon footprint. 

Extended government support and implementation of strict rules in various geographies has pushed the sales of electric bikes. In metro cities, especially in North America and European countries, the concepts of public charging infrastructure and rental service for e-bikes is on the rise. Increasing investments on the research and development by several market players, to develop new high efficiency batteries and manufacture high performance vehicles has played a crucial role in fuelling the adoption of electric bikes. Moreover, manufacturers are pushing sales of electric bikes by positioning their product as environment friendly, which not only reduces air pollution but also has the potential to considerably reduce the greenhouse effect as they reflect low tailpipe emissions.

However, certain factors pose challenges to the growth of the global electric bikes market. Electric bikes are highly priced and cannot be afforded by all. As these bikes run on batteries, they require frequent charging – this remains a challenge owing to the limited number of charging stations. Also, maintenance of the product is of utmost importance, which also requires proper charging infrastructure. High maintenance cost is another key factor that dissuades consumers from buying electric bikes.
