India Motorcycle Helmet Market Overview, 2028

The India Motorcycle Helmet market is expected to grow at more than 6.5% CAGR from 2023 to 2028.

India, the world's largest two-wheeler market, is also the world's largest market for scooter and motorcycle helmets. Due to rising road fatalities and poor road infrastructure in India, many state governments have made helmets mandatory for riders and cyclists. Other initiatives include the Tamil Nadu government enforcing an old motor vehicle rule that requires two-wheeler companies to provide BIS-compliant helmets to their customers. In recent years, two-wheeler manufacturers have begun to sell their own line of helmets. Royal Enfield and Vespa already have their own helmet lines, and now Ather Energy, an electric scooter startup, will launch its own "smart" and Bluetooth-connected helmets. The Government of India’s Ministry of Transportation in November 2020 has issued a no-sale memorandum for helmets not complying with BIS standards. The helmets that do not comply with BIS standards will not be sold in the country after June 2021. The Maharashtra government in Nashik has also launched a NO helmet NO petrol policy in order to encourage people to use helmets as a means of safety.

In the 1970s, a few Indian states, including Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu, passed laws requiring motorcycle riders to wear helmets. However, these laws were not strictly enforced, and many riders continued to ride without helmets. The Indian government passed a law in 2001 requiring all riders on all roads to wear helmets. This law also required helmets to meet certain safety standards, such as certification from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). The law also required helmet manufacturers to include the BIS logo on their products.
