Global Motorcycles Market Dynamics

The global motorcycles market is expected to be driven by the growing economic strength of middle class population in developing countries. Moreover, as the middle class population increases across the globe, the demand for efficient and affordable means of transportation is expected to increase considerably in the coming years. Motorcycles are becoming a suitable alternative, owing to which the demand for motorcycles and scooters is expected to ramp up in the coming years. Furthermore, high disposable personal income in North America has led to consumers venturing more into leisure activities revolving around motorcycles and scooters, such as racing, bike stunts and off-road activities, which in turn, has increased the demand for high engine capacity two wheelers. This is the main factor driving the growth of the motorcycle market in matured economies, such as North America and European countries. Furthermore, growth in motorcycling clubs revolving around cruiser motorcycles in the region, popularized by Harley-Davidson and Indian motorcycles, has also augmented the growth of the market in the region.

E-mobility has also emerged as a trending topic in the past few years. Various properties of electric vehicles, such as fuel conservation, silent operation and low sound emission will give them an upper hand over conventional motorcycles. Furthermore, as the emission norms get stricter, the demand for alternative means of transportation is expected to increase. Owing to this, the demand for electric scooters and motorcycles is expected to increase significantly in the coming years.

However, a majority of the working class population in North America and Europe opts for four wheelers over two wheelers as two-wheelers are affordable for consumers. This is one of the prime reasons which can hamper the growth of the motorcycles market in North America and Europe. Furthermore, electric motorcycles offer reduced speed and performance as compared to their conventional counterparts. This can further derail the growth of the market in the coming years.
