Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Scooters in China to their offering

The scooter manufacturing industry in China is undergoing a major shift in its production strategies as it tries to combat recent changes in regulations from its major export market, the United States.

Mainland China supplies approximately 60 percent of the world’s lightweight scooters, and exports, as expected, have been expanding since we published the first report on Scooters in December 2003. Exports in the first seven months of 2004 amounted to US$231 million, which is almost 90 percent of the US$261.50 million export sales registered for the entire calendar year 2003. The growth trend is expected to continue in the second half of 2004. However, new environmental and safety standards have tipped the industry on its heels.
