Motorcycles, Scooters and Mopeds: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – The last two decades have transformed the global motorcycles, scooters and mopeds market with demand outstripping expectations. Favorable demographic trends, including growing population, increasing number of women and youngsters seeking affordable and convenient means of transportation, and growing number of “born-again” middle” aged bikers seeking to reignite the thrill of bike riding, are providing much required traction to the market. Migration of rural population to urban areas, growth in geographic expanse of urban centers and subsequent rise in mobility needs, have also played important roles in fuelling growth of powered two-wheelers. Lack of strong public transportation systems and need for cheaper and convenient transportation mode for regular urban transport, particularly in developing markets, are boosting market prospects for motorcycles, scooters and mopeds. With recent financial hardships creating a new league of cost wary consumers keen on exercising focus on cost savings and benefits, powered two-wheelers are growing in popularity for their inexpensive, convenient and environment friendly benefits offered. Improvement in availability of credit is additionally lending traction to growth.

Growing replacement needs are also expected to generate substantial demand for motor cycles, scooters and mopeds in the coming years. In addition to aging, and natural wear and tear, another factor catalyzing replacements include consumer penchant for new generation fuel efficient two-wheeler models with advanced features, attractive designs, colors and styles. Regulatory requirements pertaining to fuel efficiency and emission norms also encourage consumers to replace their existing vehicle models with new fuel efficient and environmental friendly models. Given the fact that large fleets of vehicles on road in countries such as India, China, Indonesia and Brazil are old, replacement demand for powered two wheelers is poised to grow stronger in the coming years.

Huge population, burgeoning economies, growing employment opportunities, mass exodus of rural inhabitants to urban cities, particularly in China and India, are key factors fuelling growth in the region.
