The Philippines micromobility market was valued at $1.9 million in 2020, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 158.6% during the forecasted period (2021–2030). The major factors driving the growth of the market include the increasing need for reducing air pollution and transportation cost, proliferating demand for efficient micromobility services for first- and last- mile connectivity, and declining battery price.
The COVID-19 pandemic impacted almost all industries, including micromobility, in 2020. However, with proper control measures pertaining to the monitoring of the COVID-19 impact, contingency planning, tightening of financial steering, and diligent staff engagement, along with consumer demand creation, the situation is projected to normalize soon. Moreover, since the end of 2020, the COVID-19 has boosted the development of bike culture in the country, as this pandemic has stimulated several opportunities for micromobility service providers. The consumers, who want to engage in leisurely outdoor activities while practicing safe and physical distancing to minimize the spread of COVID-19, are inclining more toward the adoption of micromobility services. Thus, the pandemic has boosted the popularity of first- and last-mile solutions among the people, which, in turn, has a positive impact on the Philippines micromobility market growth. Moreover, companies are also focusing on regularly disinfecting and sanitizing their fleet, to achieve a huge customer base.
The e-mopeds category accounted for the largest value share in 2020 in the Philippines micromobility market, based on vehicle type. This category is also expected to grow at the highest growth rate during the forecast period. This growth can be majorly attributed to the surging use of e-moped services due to their economical in nature.
The dockless category accounted for larger share in 2020 in the Philippines micromobility market, and it is further expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period, on the basis of sharing system. This can be attributed to the fact that several mobility service providers are focused on offering dockless sharing system, due to the high user’s preference and less parking effort requirement in renting dockless system.
The introduction of swappable batteries has increased the fleet uptime substantially, while also reducing the operational cost, which has ultimately taken the micromobility industry in the Philippines toward profitability. Additionally, with the use of swappable batteries, the revenue generation of the e-scooter business can be improved, as these batteries not only cut a large part of the charging costs, but also improve the vehicle availability. Furthermore, various electric two-wheeler manufacturers are also focusing on installing battery swapping stations for public and commercial use. For instance, in February 2019, Honda Motor Co. Ltd., Komaihaltec Inc., and Romblon Electric Cooperative Inc. (ROMELCO) together launched a demonstration project with an aim to generate electricity with wind energy in Romblon Island, the Philippines.
The growth of the micromobility ecosystem has been exponential in the country, due to factors such as high availability, low pricing, and ease of functioning. The growth in adoption rate of micromobility services has been 10 times higher as compared to the growth of the ride sharing market in its initial phase. This is mainly due to the low-cost travel option offered by micromobility service, which has lured commuters to try the service for the first time. Along with cost saving, micromobility can also save time of travel, due to its compact and swift nature. Further, the national government authorities have also identified micromobility as a replacement to intra-city congestions during peak traffic hours, which, in turn, has a positive impact on the Philippines micromobility market.
Reducing cost of batteries is resulting in decreasing the upfront cost of electric personal mobility device (PMD), helping in increasing sales and adoptions of these vehicles for micromobility services. Presently, one-third of the cost of an electric vehicle is operated by the battery, whose cost is expected to continue falling during the forecast period. Furthermore, micromobility players are adopting new age lithium-ion batteries, as these batteries are eco-friendlier, offering reduced charging time and increased running economy than lead–acid batteries. The government is also supporting lithium-ion battery companies by offering incentives and tax credits. Therefore, declining prices of lithium-ion batteries would continue to support the micromobility market in the Philippines in coming years.
