The APAC electric scooters and motorcycles market is projected to reach 31.2 million units by 2025, according to P&S Intelligence.
The growth of the market is majorly driven by the rising urbanization in the growing economies of the APAC region such as India and China, the increasing demand for the means of transport in small cities in the APAC region, and the growing environmental concern and awareness.
Insights into market segments
On the basis of battery type, the APAC electric scooters and motorcycles market is segmented into sealed lead acid (SLA) and lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. Among these, the volume sales of the SLA category accounted for a larger share, accounting for 85% contribution in 2017. However, the Li-ion category is expected to grow at a faster rate when compared to the SLA category during the forecast period, owing to their light weight and longer expected life.
On the basis of technology, the APAC electric scooters and motorcycles market is segmented into plug-in and battery types. Among these, the plug-in category recorded higher sales by volume, accounting for more than 90% share in the market in 2017. The category is expected to continue its dominance in terms of size against the battery category during the forecast period as well, owing to ease of convenience and the lack of battery swapping infrastructure in the region.
