Report Overview

Increasing focus on carbon emissions and sustainability are driving the global electric scooter market. Additionally, favorable government initiatives and private-public investments in strengthening charging infrastructure is expected to positively influence the market.

Global Electric Scooter Market- Industry Trends & Forecast Report 2028

The global electric scooter market is estimated to grow at the CAGR of 23.0% in the forecast period (2022-2028). The rapid growth of the global electric scooter market can be attributed to the growing awareness of carbon emissions and footprint, as well as the shift from conventional transportation modes for short distances. Furthermore, government initiatives and monetary incentives aimed at boosting the purchase of electric scooters contribute to the growth of the market.

Electric Scooters – A Brief Overview

An electric scooter is a three-wheeler vehicle powered by an electric motor and is designed to let the rider stand on it to operate. This vehicle is also capable of functioning with or without human propulsion. The electric scooter uses a rechargeable battery, which is stored onboard, but there are also variations of hybrid and fuel cell. The average range of an electric vehicle is between 6 and 25 miles, with the exception of certain brands.

Electric Scooter Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Awareness of the Environment and Sustainability

The increasing level of air and noise pollution and carbon footprint through fuel vehicles are anticipated to fuel the growth of the electric scooter market. Electrified scooters are becoming a popular substitute for short-distance commutes, leaving little to no carbon footprint. Electric vehicles produce zero direct emissions because they run entirely on electricity. The demand for electric vehicles is expected to surge in the forecast period due to greater consciousness about the environment and sustainability, especially among the younger demographic.

Establishment of New Charging Points

The government and private players in different regions are significantly investing in boosting the number of charging points in their respective countries. This is anticipated to emerge as a crucial factor in boosting the adoption of electric scooters among the masses. For instance, the White House recently announced the investment of USD 7.5 billion under the “Biden-Harris Electric Vehicle Charging Action Plan”, on electric vehicle infrastructure to increase the number of charging stations in the United States from 100,000 to 500,000

Restraints

Lack of Charging Infrastructure

The lack of charging infrastructure is one of the major restraining factors for the entire electric vehicle market, including electric scooters as well. The range of electric scooters is very low and therefore, requires frequent charging. However, the charging points are very limited and are still concentrated in urban and developed cities only. Since the number of charging points is incredibly low in developing and underdeveloped countries, this may limit the adoption of electric scooters at the mass level, sabotaging the entire market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Electric Scooter Market

The growth of the global electric scooter market was negatively hindered due to the sudden COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. The nationwide lockdown in different parts of the world restricted the production activities for electric scooters during the COVID-19 period. Even after the lockdown ended and production resumed, the market still faced a shortage of components. However, the pandemic also appeared to offer growth opportunities for the electric scooter market because of increased awareness of the environment and sustainability.

Global Electric Scooter Market - By Product Type

Based on product types, the global electric scooter market is segmented into retro, standing/self-balancing, and folding. The retro segment holds the largest market share as they are considered most suitable for commuting shorter distances. The low procurement and maintenance costs involved with retro electric scooters, are significantly attracting the younger and working adults’ demographics, which is anticipated to propel its market growth during the forecast period. However, the folding electric scooter is also growing at a substantial rate.

Global Electric Scooter Market - By Battery Type

Based on battery types, the global electric scooter market is segmented into sealed lead acid (SLA), NiMh, and li-ion. The sealed lead-acid battery segment accounts for the largest market share since it offers higher power and energy per KWH. SLA batteries are also considered more reliable and have a longer life span, which makes them more economical. However, the Li-ion battery segment is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to its higher energy density, voltage capacity, and lower self-discharge rate.

Global Electric Scooter Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the electric scooter market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle-East & Africa. Europe dominates the electric scooter market, followed by North America. The high awareness towards sustainability and carbon emission along with favorable government initiatives and incentives plays a crucial factor in propelling the growth of the market. However, the Asia-Pacific region is projected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period owing to the increasing launches of electric scooters in emerging economies.
