М&A Report
E-bike market analysis
Global mobility industry is shifting – not only have recent years demonstrated a rising demand in electric and hybrid vehicles, there is also a noticeable change in personal mobility. We are talking about bikes and their recent upgrades – e-bikes.

The demand for healthier rides with less pollution and less impact on road traffic globally is soaring and more cities and countries prioritise making their roads bike-friendly. In 2016, Copenhagen announced that there were more bikes than cars on the street for the first time ever. And although every 19th person in the world buys a bike each year and overall production of bikes is 2.5x the production of cars, cycling accounted for only 1% of total road traffic vs. 77% for taxis and cars in 2018.
The major concerns that stop people from buying a bike are hill rides, lengthy distances, and arriving at a destination drenched in sweat. This is expected to change with e-bikes, that aim at nullifying these concerns.

E-bikes differ in design, type (pedal assist or full-electric), range, speed, and, eventually, price. Despite these differences one thing is certain – growth of e-bike sales. The market is expected to demonstrate a double digit growth over the next 5 years – about 11% – reaching 39 USDb in 2025.

Today most e-bikes are pedal assisted – about 88% in 2018, yet more and more bikes are developed with more autonomous range in mind. Companies that offer smartphone integration especially benefit from capital raising – Delfast, VanMoof, Greyp, Cowboy, and Rad Bikes are companies to follow in the coming years.
