Sales of Electric Motorcycles and Scooters Will Reach 6 Million Annually by 2023, Forecasts Navigant Research

 

 

 

 

 

The market for power two-wheel (PTW) vehicles, which includes electric motorcycles (e-motorcycles) and electric scooters (e-scooters), has grown slowly in recent years.  Although sales volumes in the next couple of years are likely to remain low, due to continued high costs for components and low levels of demand, this market is poised for growth after 2015, as consumer markets continue to expand, new competitors enter the market, and suppliers increase capabilities. According to a new report from Navigant Research, worldwide sales of e-motorcycles will grow from 1.2 million vehicles annually in 2014 to 1.4 million in 2023, while sales of e-scooters will grow from 4.1 million to 4.6 million.

 

 

 

“Consumers are seeking refuge from higher gasoline prices, electric two-wheel vehicles are growing more mature, and cities are becoming increasingly congested with traffic,” says John Gartner, research director with Navigant Research.  “All of these factors will contribute to growing demand for power two-wheel vehicles — particularly high-powered e-motorcycles.”

 

 

 

The market for e-motorcycles and e-scooters is led by China, where the majority of these vehicles are sold.  According to the report, however, policies limiting urban traffic in China indicate reduced sales in that country.  E-motorcycle manufacturers in North America and Europe will address the market challenges by improving product quality and expanding their distribution channels.  Navigant Research forecasts that sales of e-motorcycles and e-scooters in these two regions will expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 30 percent through 2023.

 

 

 

The report, “Electric Motorcycles and Scooters”, examines the global markets for high-powered and low-powered e-motorcycles, e-scooters, and the related battery technologies.  The report provides an analysis of the market drivers and barriers and key technology issues related to e-PTWs, as well as the impact of government influence.  Global forecasts for e-PTWs and the batteries used in the vehicles, segmented by region, technology, and internal combustion engine (ICE) motor size equivalent, extend through 2023.  The report also examines the market for gasoline motorcycles and scooters, battery market issues, the effect of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment, and the major industry players.  An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.
