Demand for motorcycles in China will grow 13.9 percent annually through 2011. Gains will be spurred by a meteoric rise in electric motorcycles, which are much less costly than gas types, are less regulated and are a popular upgrade from bicycles for urban consumers. The Northeast will see the fastest regional demand growth.
This study analyzes the 23.2 million unit motorcycle industry in China. It presents historical demand data for the years 1996, 2001 and 2006, and forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by model (e.g., cruisers, scooters, underbones, trikes and sidecars, mopeds, electric bicycles); engine displacement, battery type (lead-acid, lithium polymer, fuel cell); market (e.g., transportation, recreation); and region.
The study considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 39 participating companies, including Grand River Group, Jianshe Industry Group and Suzuki.
