Bicycle Market Overview

According to the latest Market research projection study, the global bicycle market size is estimated to be valued at USD 154.43 billion by the end of the year 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate of a CAGR of 6 percent over the forecast timeframe of between 2022 to 2030. In the year 2021, the market had total revenues of USD 59.17 billion. The substantial market development may be attributed to strong support from the government and raising public awareness about carbon pollution.

Market development is expected to be fueled by a spike in the number of individuals who choose biking as a type of recreational activity. In addition, increased demand for bicycles as a handy mode of transportation to maintain a healthy lifestyle free of overweight and other illnesses is predicted to fuel future growth in the market. As a result, Dockless bicycle-sharing systems, which do not need a docking station, are becoming more popular. Using this method, users may detect a bicycle in their immediate vicinity and electrically unlock it. As a result, Dockless bicycle-sharing schemes, which were first introduced in Europe, are growing in popularity throughout the world, notably in Asian countries such as India and China.

Covid 19 Analysis

The COVID-19 virus has generated a new global cycling craze that has spread around the globe. Because of health and safety worries during the epidemic, many are opting to go moderate to small distances on bicycles rather than on foot. In addition, people in urban areas are turning to bicycles to stay active rather than going to the gym. Local towns and cities have also experienced an increase in the desire for bicycles, both as a means of preserving social distance and as an extra mode of transportation.

It is believed that the COVID-19 crisis would result in behavioral and perceptional alterations in humans. With an increasing number of individuals taking up riding, the habit has become very accepted with bigger customers, which is expected to increase the need for bicycle-friendly infrastructure. As a result, even though the epidemic has brought in this tendency, it is expected to persist. This will have a favorable impact on the expansion of the bicycle market value.

Market Dynamic


It is anticipated that the rising desire of individuals to live a healthy living would fuel market expansion during the projected period. Shoppers are searching for ways to keep themselves active by participating in diverse sports exercises such as biking. Furthermore, the trend toward a more exercise regime is increasing the demand for recreational activities such as cycling throughout the world. The growing importance of sports activities, particularly for medical reasons, the expanding number of sporting events, and the growing amount of influencer marketing are all contributing to the market's expansion.


The advent of dockless bike-sharing systems relying on smartphone apps and the Global Positioning System results from recent technological advances. Furthermore, the increasing use of driverless bicycle-sharing systems is expected to increase the demand for bikes considerably. In order to take advantage of the market prospects in Europe, Chinese bicycle-sharing businesses are financing and growing their businesses vigorously in Europe. As a result, the market is likely to develop faster in the years to come.


The market's expansion is expected to be hampered by the impending poor infrastructure required to enable and promote bicycle commuting, especially in emerging nations such as India. In addition, lightweight bicycles constructed of composites are also more costly, which would not speak well for the development of the industry in the future.


Many industry operators may face challenges due to a lack of charging and platform services in the next years.
