Global motorcycle market size was valued at USD 119.33 billion in 2021, and it is expected to reach a value of USD 223 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 8.4% over the forecast period (2022-2028).

Westford, USA, Nov. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Global motorcycle market is growing at a healthy CAGR of 8.4% primarily due to increasing demand from developing countries, such as China and India. In addition, growth in traditional markets such as Europe and North America is also anticipated. SkyQuest study says that motorcycles will account for 16% of total worldwide vehicle sales by 2025. This is up from 13% in 2018. The main reasons for this growth are increasing demand from developing countries, along with growing interest in electric motorcycles. For instance, in the last 9 months, the global motorcycles production was recorded at 40.5 million units, which is expected to surpass 61.8 million units by the end of 2022, over 3.3% growth as compared to 2021.

SkyQuest analysts  of the global motorcycle market note that there are several areas where manufacturers can improve their product offerings to gain market share: cost reductions, better fuel economy, new safety features, and more comfortable seating positions. Additionally, they suggest introducing new models that appeal to a wider variety of riders.

So, what’s driving the growth? There a few factors at play: Growing populations in developing countries are increasingly favoring motorcycles over cars for transportation; increased awareness about health benefits associated with riding a motorcycle; increasing spending on leisure activities such as travel, dining out and entertainment; technological advancements that have led to more powerful engines and lightweight frames; expansion of sales channels such as online sales and franchise operations; continued growth of the electric motorcycle market.

There are several potential challenges that could affect the growth of the motorcycle industry over the next few years. One major issue is that many riders don’t have a good understanding about how to maintain their bike properly, which can lead to mechanical failures or accidents.

Production Outlook of Motorcycle Market: 100 Million Motorcycles to Be Sold By 2035

Motorcycle sales in the United States totaled 1.5 million units in 2021, down from 2.1 million units in 2020 and 2.4 million units in 2019. The market share of motorcycles in the US market declined from 2% in 2021 to 1% in 2020. The main reasons for this decline are the increase of car ownership and the increasing popularity of cars that run on gasoline or diesel fuel, which has led to a shift away from motorcycles as transportation mode.

India will occupy second position with a market share of around 33% by 2028. The U.S. which currently accounts for a little over 7% of the global electric motorcycle market, is tipped to witness significant growth owing to increasing investment in green transportation solutions and growing awareness about the environmental benefits of electric vehicles among consumers.
