Insights into market segments

Based on the product, the electric scooter and motorcycle market is categorized into scooter and motorcycle. Of the two, the scooter category dominated the market during the historical years and is expected to continue doing so in the coming years. In 2017, the scooter category recorded higher sales by value, as it held over 90% of the market share. However, it is the motorcycle category that is expected to have faster growth between the two, attributable to the increasing demand for high-speed two-wheelers.

On the basis of the battery type, the electric scooter and motorcycle market has been categorized into sealed lead acid (SLA) and lithium-ion (Li-ion). The SLA category led the segment in 2017 in terms of sales by value, accounting for over 80% of market share. Much of this can be attributed to the low cost of SLA batteries as compared to the Li-ion. However, in the coming years, the market for Li-ion batteries is forecasted to grow at a faster rate as compared to the SLA batteries, owing to the technological advantages of these batteries over SLA batteries, and government norms and regulations favoring their use in the electric two-wheelers.

Government support and favorable policies are driving the growth of the global electric scooter and motorcycle market

The government support and favorable policies are primarily driving the growth of the electric scooter and motorcycle market. Aiming to increase the penetration of such vehicles and to support their adoption, the governments around the world are offering reduction in registration taxes, subsidies, and tax rebates on the purchase of these vehicles.

For instance, the Federal Government of the U.S. in 2017 offered 10% electric motorcycle tax credit up to $2,500 on the purchase of Zero motorcycles (manufactured by Zero Motorcycles Inc.). Also, in March 2015, the Indian government launched the faster adoption and manufacturing of (hybrid and) electric vehicles (FAME) scheme to boost the production and sales of electric vehicles in the country. Under this scheme, the financial incentives are offered for electric two-wheelers ranging from $120 (INR 7,500) to $350 (INR 22,000). Such schemes are expected to drive the growth of the electric scooter and motorcycle market in the coming years.
