Pedelec Market: Development Insight and Manufacturers Challenge Competitors

Press Release

A Pedelec which is also called as low powered pedal electric cycle, is a bicycle where the small electric motor controls the rider’s pedaling. An electric controller is included in the Pedelecs to control the speed by cutting power to the motor when the rider is not pedaling or when a certain speed (16 mph) is reached. People living in hilly areas or strong headwinds find Pedelecs to be very useful. They rely on the pedelec rather than using fully motorized transport. Pedelec electric cycle is particularly useful to the elderly people who may no longer have the capacity to perform the strong effort that climbing demands.

Major drivers of the global pedelec market includes advantages, such as energy saving by using electronic controllers for automatically cutting down the motor’s power whenever the rider stops pedaling or breaches the bike’s set speed limit. There has been increasing demand for eco-friendly transportation such as Pedelec due to growing emphasis towards the development of the sustainable environment for the future generation. Also, increasing health concerns among the consumers, especially baby boomers and working professionals is propelling the growth of this pedelec market share. Pedelec cycles offer health benefits as the driver has to pedal to move forward, taking the aid from the electric motor. As the government is focusing on pollution reduction, and electro mobility, zero emission vehicles are being rapidly promoted through incentives. This will indeed lead to increasing focus on electric bikes and thus, a significant rise in the sales of electric bikes is expected over the forecast period. Market challenge for the pedelec market has been the cost of the vehicle which is comparatively higher than normal cycles.
