E-bikes is defined as a bicycle with an integrated electric motor drive
mechanism and battery that produces power for causing/assisting propulsion. Various types of globally available e-bikes range from electric bikes with a small motor to assist the pedal-power of the rider to more powerful e-bikes which produce power to completely drive the bike using throttle.
The increase in urbanization is one of the key drivers for the global E-bike market. Urban population throughout the world is increasing at higher pace. For instance, As per the United Nations Reports 2018, around 68% of the global population would reside in urban areas by year of 2050. Hyper-urbanization in some countries is hindering the city traffic by raising traffic congestion, parking issues, high travel cost & delays in vehicle movement during traffic jams. Hence, the use of electric-bikes can reduce the number of vehicles on the road & result in fewer traffic jams.
Some prominent players are discussed in this report such as Giant Bicycles Co. Ltd, Merida Industry Co. Ltd, Riese & Muller, Yamaha Bicycles, Cannondale Bicycle Corporation, Kalkhoff, VanMoof BV, Coboc, Ampler Bikes, Cowboy, etc.
