E-Bike Market Growth Across The World

September 21, 2017 Electric Bikes Future

Electric bikes make your daily commute and day-to-day travel cheaper and less stressful. Shockingly, 75% are clueless on the major benefits that e-vehicles bring. An e-bike acts as a regular bike but contains a battery and electric motor that assists when you’re pedalling. You still receive the benefits of pedalling, but your speed gets a boost. They are utilised by a variety of riders including students, commuters, family riders, and senior citizens.

Last year, Axcess Electric Bikes conducted a formal interview with Navigant Research to gain the latest insight on the growth of the market and how electric bikes had become an increasingly popular commuting choice across the world.

Fast forward to 2017, and more locations across the world are making a conscious effort to market e-bikes and encourage their use. Our team have carried out some in-depth research and we’ve discovered that various countries are investing into new e-bike schemes and cycling infrastructures. But where is the e-bike market booming the most?

The growth of the e-bike market

As the top-selling e-vehicle in the world with booming sales over the globe, electric bicycles encourage a re-think into the way we travel. Li-ion battery technology results in e-bikes that are lighter and hold the build of traditional bicycles with the power of assisted speed!


The Bicycle Industry Association predicts that around 680,000 e-bikes will be sold by the end of 2017! In comparison to 2016, this shows double-digit growth of 12%. E-bikes are a practical transportation option, and Germany as a country embraces e-bikes as a means of mobility in the inner cities that contain high traffic.

The Swedish Government is constructing a budget relating to electric bikes for 2018. This will entail a €37 million proposal to co-fund electric bike sales.

The aim of this funding is to support the delay of climate change, create jobs and reduce pollution amongst communities. Additionally, the country is planning investments in green transport for solar cell and charging posts.

“Our generation should be able to hand over a society to our children where the major environmental problems are solved and where the cities should be living and healthy growing environments. There is a lot to be done to it – it has been underinvested for sustainable development for too long, “said spokesperson Isabella Lövin.

The UK Electric Bike Market

Electric bikes are becoming more familiar across the United Kingdom. Although it hasn’t quite seen its big ‘boom’ as of yet, sales continue to grow at a fast pace and with new cycling schemes and increased modal share.

A report from Navigant Research suggests that e-bike sales will increase globally by 54.7% over the next 9 years.

The UK electric bike market is compared to the quality of cycle paths and higher levels of cycle usage that The Netherlands and Germany seem to contain.

The bike is comfortable and easy to use.
We called in to Access on impulse and we both road tested 2 bikes each. I bought one because it is quite simply the most comfortable bike I have ever ridden. No stretch forward straining my upper back and neck. My bike is the Access Exmoor. No hard sell, and a knowledgeable team
Having reached the age of 71, I decided that having retired I would get myself a bike again, and after much thought and also a lot of time on the internet, I decided that an electric bike would suit me better, and also that a folding bike would be useful as I could go places with my bike in the car, without the hassle of removing a wheel each time, also living in a flat a folding bike in It's bag is a lot less obtrusive. While on the Internet I came across 'Axcess Electric Bikes' site, this was not only very helpful, but gave a very wide choice of bikes, both in style and price. I drove up to Honiton to have a look at them for real. On arrival I saw a second-hand bike outside which I really liked, but It was not a folding one and I had to remind myself that I had decided on a folding Bike. On going in The showroom I was greeted by a very friendly lady who as it turned out was very helpful and knowledgeable. There was no pressure to buy and was encouraged to take my time to look at the stock. I decided to buy a New Axcess Shetland and asked to take it with me. The Gent who was working on the bikes in the workshop area, said that he would check it over immediately, and he also demonstrated how it folded and fitted in the bag which I also purchased. I was allowed to take it out for a test ride before purchase. It is a lovely bike, as has a really firm feel to it, and ideal for what I want. Being a folding bike it has a step through frame which I find easier a feature that even my Sister likes. (Come to that she did not want me to take the bike away with me when I visited her.). I use it for shopping, going on photography outings, or just going for a ride. I am still amazed as to how effective the battery assist is. The ratings only go up to very good, but I would rate both the bike and the firm as excellent. Should I decide to buy another Bike in the future, I shall go straight to Axcess Elctric Bikes of Honiton. Since retiring from a very physical job I found my knees were getting stiff, cycling has cured that. Thank You
