The diversity of factors affecting the bicycle market reflects its dynamic nature. An important factor is consumer preferences. The recent years have been characterized by the growth of demand for bicycles as environmental and health-friendly modes of transport, owing to greater interest in living sustainably and healthy. This shift in consumer behavior has led manufacturers to create different beautiful bikes that meet varied needs.
Economic factors also play a central role in the bicycle market. Consumers’ spending capacity is greatly influenced by the macroeconomic status of a region. Individuals invest more in recreational and alternative modes of transportation during periods when the economy is doing well which increases bike sales. On the contrary, when there is an economic recession, consumers might choose alternative cheaper ways of travelling that may result in a sharp drop in bicycle sales. This sensitivity to the economic situation shows that market for bicycle is cyclical.

This transformation to a more environmentally conscious system of transportation helps the bicycle market, which in turn forces manufacturers to change and meet emerging societal demands.
