According to the report, the South Africa electric bicycle (E-bike) market is segmented into two propulsion types, including pedal assist and throttle. Among these types, the pedal assist segment occupied a major portion of the market share in 2021 and is expected to continue growing during the forecast period. The higher market growth is attributed to its better battery life, lower servicing needs, and the ability for users to choose from three to five modes of pedal-assist depending on the model. However, the throttle segment is anticipated to exhibit a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Factors such as decreased pedaling effort in scenarios such as accelerating up a hill or cruising will drive the growth of this segment. Further, the market is segmented into three class types, including Class 1: Pedal Assist, Class 2: Throttle On Demand, and Class 3: Speed Pedelec. Class 1 e-bikes had the highest market revenue share in 2021 and are expected to maintain their dominance in the coming years. The rising demand for pedelecs because of their health assistance along with power assistance within the range of 25 kph that does not have any regulation on its driving is likely to propel the growth of class 1 e-bikes. Furthermore, based on the application, the city/urban segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the upcoming timeframe. COVID-19 Impacts: The COVID-19 outbreak has given a huge boost to the electric bike market. As people have become more cautious and with public transport taking a backseat even after the lifting of lockdowns, electric bikes have turned out to be the preferred choice of transport because it's fast, easy to ride, cheap and safe. The government restrictions and lockdowns during the first quarter of 2020 dampened the sale of e-Bikes as the stores were closed, and the commute was allowed for only essential services. However, after removing all impositions due to increased vaccination drives, things have started to normalize with the opening of offices and all other regular activity stores globally, which has again increased the regular travel scenario of commuters. The electric bike market is estimated to observe a huge boost in sales post-COVID-19 during the forecast period.
