Also, a surge in oil prices and the need to conserve natural resources are expected to drive the market for bicycles. More people around the world are choosing to pedal shorter distances to save on oil and fuel. Furthermore, riding a bicycle does not require a license, making it a healthy, inexpensive, and accessible mode of transportation for everybody.
According to the report, "Japan Bicycle Market Research Report, 2027" published by Actual Market Research (ActualMR), the market is anticipated to witness prominent market growth during the upcoming timeframe. Continuously mounting demand for faster and cleaner modes of transportation is creating new opportunities for bicycle manufacturers across the country as the pollution created by emissions from gasoline-powered automobiles has reached new heights. In the meantime, green solution suppliers and manufacturers have seen this as an opportunity. Bicycle manufacturing companies present in the country are taking advantage of these circumstances to expand and grow their business. In addition to that, the bicycle market's growth is also driven by a rise in disposable income and a surge in consumer spending on the industry.
Further, increased demand for bicycles as a handy mode of transportation to maintain a healthy lifestyle free of overweight and other illnesses is predicted to fuel future growth in the market. As a result, dockless bicycle-sharing systems, which do not need a docking station, are becoming more popular. Using this method, users may detect a bicycle in their immediate vicinity and electrically unlock it. On the other hand, electric bicycles, or e-bikes, have the highest potential for growth and will register an absolute incremental opportunity during the forecast period of 2022-2027 across the country. Electric cycles have emerged as the most convenient option for local commutes, which will drive the bicycle sector due to their numerous advantages. Electric bicycles, also referred to as pedelecs, provide a faster commute than traditional bicycles, and they also require less human effort to ride, overcoming one of the major disadvantages of traditional cycles.
According to the report, the Japan bicycle market is segmented into various types of bicycles, including road bikes, mountain bikes, hybrid bikes, and electric bikes. Among these types, e-bikes are projected to acquire a higher market share in 2021 and are expected to continue this growth. Further, the market is categorized into three end users, including men, women, and kids. The men's segment holds a major share of the market as the male population is more inclined towards biking and cycling than other segments. Additionally, men's growing inclination towards hiking and leisure activities is further driving the segmental growth. On the other hand, the kids & women segment is expected to showcase considerable growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing trend of holiday bicycling among households across the country. Based on the biker’s type, the market is segmented into four types, such as highly engaged, engaged, leisure, and travel. Among these types, leisure is anticipated to witness higher market growth by 2027 in the Japan bicycle market.
Strong consumer demand for various kinds of exercise-related items such as indoor and outdoor bikes, dumbbells, rowers, and other gym equipment to maintain health and fitness during the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to skyrocket the demand for bikes in Japan. Additionally, the lack of public mobility vehicles such as trains, buses, and others due to lockdown restrictions has further sparked the consumer’s interest in buying such vehicles. However, sudden supply chain disruptions in the automobile industry during the pandemic period are expected to impose severe challenges to the overall industry’s growth. These challenges primarily include tightening cash flows between the small-scale equipment distributors companies associated with this market. The growing popularity of remote work among corporate professionals and others is expected to reduce the number of daily road commuters across the country.
An e-bike comes with an electric motor, it comes in many different styles from commuter bikes to the full-suspension mountain bikes. The motor inside this works by automatically switching on the motor through paddling. These bikes come with two different types of motors like, the motors that are in a crank and the other motors that are in your rear hub. The crank motors provide more authentic bicycle experience, because of its paddling system to start the motor. These motors are trend to be more responsive than the hub motors. The hub motors have been there for a long time now and also offers a simple design. Most of the motors do not sense that how much power you are making with your legs. So, they are generally ‘on’ or ‘off’. E-bike have another big advantage of protecting the planet from global warming and the harmful gases that are affecting the environment largely. Similarly, it also has few disadvantages like, they are heavy and bulky, offer a shorter riding range and requires more maintenance and need to be charged immediately after use. The trend of e-bikes has just begun and will stay for a long time in the coming years. Because run on electric motor, they need to be charged properly every time. Few models don’t have the chargeable system, but have the paddling system with which you can just pedal and turn on the motor of the bike. Urban and city bicycle is expected to grow with the highest CAGR by the end of the forecasted year 2027.
