World Motorcycles

Global motorcycle demand will grow 7.6 percent annually through 2013, driven by rising living standards in developing areas that make motorcycles more affordable to use. ICE motorcycles will remain dominant while electric types lead gains. Sales in the Africa/Mideast and Asia/Pacific markets will grow the fastest.

This study analyzes the 79.2 million unit world motorcycle industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by product (e.g., scooters, mopeds and motorbikes; light motorcycles; medium/heavy motorcycles; electric bicycles and mopeds; electric scooters), world region and for 21 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry players, including Honda, Yamaha and Harley-Davidson.
