Growth Factors:

The Market key factor driving the growth of the global e-bike drive unit market is the increasing health concerns and demand for eco-friendly transportation among consumers. Globally, people are becoming more aware of health issues such as asthma and respiratory problems caused by vehicle emissions. In addition, vehicles often cause noise pollution which often leads to loss of hearing, high blood pressure, and sleep deprivation. Therefore, with the increase in awareness of environmental and health hazards caused by vehicles, a large number of consumers are switching to electric vehicles such as e-bikes as they are powered using renewable energy sources that keep the environment clean and pollution-free. This will boost the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Most e-bikes and pedelecs available in the market are equipped with hub motors. Although the hub motors require low maintenance and they do not affect the elementary design of the bike, they make the wheels heavy and the sealed nature of these motors increases the chances of overheating. These limitations of hub motors are shifting the focus of manufacturers toward designing and developing lightweight and compact motors known as crank motors. The crank motor is attached to the rotating rod of the pedal assembly to gain balance in weight and ensure smooth functioning of the gears. Crank motors are especially useful while climbing steep hills and riding at high speed on flat roads.

Highlights of the Report:

by Product 

There are two types of drive units utilized in the e-bike that include mid-drive motors and hub motors. Hub motors capture major revenue share of almost 70% in the year 2019. Hub motors are simple in construction, lighter in weight, and inexpensive to the manufacturers due to which it is the most commonly found motors in the e-bike.

The global market for the Hub Motors was valued at USD 4,323.54 million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 5,710.93 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 4.16% from 2021 to 2027.

E-bike Drive Unit Market Share By Product Type 2027 (%)

Segment 2027 (%)
Hub Motors 68.30
Mid-Drive Motor 31.70

Mid-drive motors are electric motors that are mounted closer to the center of the bicycle. The directly connects to the gears and cranks of the bike thus offer higher torque and performance compared to hub motors. It powers through the drivetrain of the bike that assist in running on long and steep hills along with high power that offers high speed on flat roads. The position of the motor is at the center of gravity of the bike touching the ground that further provides better handling to the user, thus are largely preferred for off-road mountain biking. Further, these motors offer easy maintenance compared to hub motors. They can be easily replaced by removing few nut-bolts.

by Application

In 2019, OEM dominated the market with around 92.87 % share in terms of revenue of the total market and projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period and anticipated to reach a market share of 93.75% in 2027. As the e-bike is an innovative and emerging market in the bicycle sector, the OEM occupy major portion of the global e-bike drive unit market revenue.

E-bike Drive Unit Market Share By Application 2019 and 2027 (%)

Segment 2019 (%) 2027 (%)
OEM 96.23 97.11
Aftermarket 3.77 2.89

Aftermarket for the e-bike drive units holds less revenue share compared to OEMs as the technology is new and in its nascent phase thus has under-developed aftermarket in every region. However, in Europe, and China the aftermarket for e-bike and its components is stronger as these region have strong production base as well as significant demand for the e-bikes. Europe is considered as the bicycle friendly county promoting the adoption of bicycle among users that provides them numerous benefits in achieving CO2 emission norms as well as it boost their economy by reducing spending on the fuel and road infrastructure maintenance. Besides this, less technical knowledge regarding e-bike features restrict its dealers and retailer to contribute prominently towards the growth of the e-bike market.

Regional analysis:

Asia Pacific accounted for foremost portion of revenue and consumption share of more than 92% in the year 2020. Substantial production of e-bikes in China is the major factor that fuels the market growth in the region. China alone subsidizes nearly 92% of the global production of e-bikes and this trend expected to endure over the forthcoming years. Large consumer base and early adoption of the technology in the region are the key influences contributing towards the attractive growth of the region. Apart from China, other Asian nations such as Japan, India, South Korea, Taiwan, and many others are also anticipated to exhibit promising growth for e-bikes and its components over the estimate period.

Europe is the other key region that follows China in terms of e-bike production and exhibit attractive growth for its implementation over the upcoming years. Snowballing trend for shared e-bikes in Spain, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and many other nations in EU-27 predicted to be the key aspect that spurs the growth of this region. Furthermore, increasing public awareness along with snowballing penetration of e-bike drive unit manufacturers in the region again uplifts the overall market demand. Besides, North America displays stable growth in the e-bike drive unit market with significant adoption of the technology in the region.
