COVID-19 analysis

COVID-19 first appeared on the global stage in March of 2020. Since it was a disease that hospitalized a fraction of the people who got it and killed less than 1% of its victims, governments around the world decided to try to contain the virus.

They did so through quarantines and lockdowns. Many e-bike manufacturers were negatively impacted because they were unable to source some of their raw materials as easily. They passed the higher manufacturing costs onto the consumer in the form of higher retail prices.

Market Dynamics


Various governments around the world are promoting safer and cleaner means of transportation in an attempt to produce a cleaner and greener environment. Many have responded by passing legislation that encourages and rewards those who use e-bikes often. 

More and more governments around the world are encouraging growth in the e-bike market bypassing strict rules and regulations for vehicle emissions. The objective is to try to clean the air up by reducing the number of polluting particles that vehicles emit.

Many urban people also see the e-bike as a cheaper and cleaner way to travel short distances within cities.


Many governments around the world are now requiring vehicle manufacturers to produce vehicles that don’t emit any polluting particles. Since this is hard to impossible to do with automotive vehicles, many manufacturers are looking for practical alternatives. They are finding this in the form of e-bikes. 


One of the key factors that are holding back growth in the global e-bike market is the high sticker price of most e-bikes. E-bikes may be less expensive than cars are. However, they are more expensive than their mechanical counterparts. Some motorbikes are priced lower than most e-bikes are!

Buying batteries are not cheap. E-bike batteries cost at least US $500 and can sell for as much as the US $800. Maintenance can be expensive and cumbersome. E-bike owners spend an average of US $280 to maintain their bikes every year. 

There are also distribution difficulties in the global e-bike market.


The main challenges in encouraging growth in the global e-bike market lie in designing a smart battery. E-bikes must travel long distances in a short period. This places tremendous pressure on their batteries which have limited capacity for storing energy. 

There is also another challenge of designing e-bikes that would work with and be responsive to apps on mobile devices.
