World Motorcycles

Outside of China, motorcycle sales will grow more than seven percent per annum during the 2015-2020 period, supported by three major trends:

• As personal incomes rise in developing nations, more households will be able to afford motorcycles.

• Motorcycle sales will rebound in a number of major markets, including Brazil, Indonesia, Italy, Spain, and Thailand.

• Demand for electric bicycles (e-bikes) and electric motorcycles is forecast to rise 11 percent per annum.

The large Chinese motorcycle market will record sizable losses through the forecast year 2020. Rising motor vehicle demand, the expansion of public transportation networks, and new restrictions on motorcycle use will limit gains

Living standards improve in developing countries

Numerous developing countries in the Asia/Pacific region will register strong product sales gains, including Myanmar, the Philippines, Pakistan, and Indonesia. Demand for motorcycles will increase as living standards improve and affordable models become more widely available. Most households cannot afford automobiles, and bus and rail public transportation systems are underdeveloped, making motorcycles an appealing option.

Medium & heavy ICE motorcycles register fastest gains

The medium and heavy internal combustion engine (ICE) motorcycle segment will register faster gains than other ICE product types through 2020, as new and replacement product sales grow in North America, Western Europe, and other mature markets. In developing nations, the number of wealthy households that can afford medium and heavy models, which are luxury items, is expected to increase sharply because of strong economic growth.

E-bikes take share from bicycles

Globally, there will be an increasing use of e-bikes at the expense of bicycles. E-bikes are able to reach higher speeds and require less physical exertion, making them a good fit for older riders. They are also more affordable than motorcycles and in many countries do not require a license or insurance to operate.

World Motorcycles presents historical demand data (2005, 2010 and 2015) plus forecasts (2020 and 2025) on a country-by-country basis for production (total), demand by product type, and net exports of new motorcycles in thousands of units. The following types of ICE motorcycles are covered: scooters of all displacements, mopeds, and motorbikes of 100 cubic centimeters (cc) or less engine displacement; light motorcycles of 101 cc to 249 cc; and medium and heavy motorcycles of 250 cc and greater. Electrically-powered models include electric bicycles (e-bikes), mopeds, scooters, and motorcycles.
