Market Overview

The Global "Electric Cargo Bikes Market" is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

  • The advent of cargo bikes which run on electricity proves to be an innovative and disruptive technology in the logistics and transportation business, primarily positively impacting the urban delivery scenario. Electronic cargo bikes can carry several customer orders at once and offer a greener alternative to traditional delivery vehicles, producing zero emissions and no noise pollution.

Market Dynamics

  • Lower running costs, reduction in delivery times, and lower environmental impact are some of the significant advantages of using electric cargo bikes rather than other mediums to transport goods. The shifting consumer preference for electric cargo bikes in developed countries is also expected to present new opportunities for market growth and product expansion to significant companies.

  • The companies recognize the trend as a means to generate additional revenue and thus focused on introducing new electric cargo bikes which will provide sustainable growth for the product demand during the forecast period.

  • For instance, in 2018, Volkswagen (VW) announced the launch of an e-cargo bike as part of its solution for sustainable goods transport in urban regions. It can carry a load of up to 210 kgs (driver included) and can handle cargo volumes of up to a half cubic meter.

  • However, the biggest challenge for electric cargo bike is the lack of adapted infrastructure, safe cycle lanes, secure parking and easy to find repair shops.

Market Segmentation

  • The global electric cargo bikes market is segmented by end use such as courier and parcel service providers, large retail suppliers, personal transportation, and others. Courier and parcel service providers dominate the market owing to the growing package deliveries from online retail sector and shift in consumer preference for electric cargo bikes.

  • According to figures of the German parcel and express logistics association (BIEK), the volume of the parcel, courier and express shipments has grown by 74% during 2000–2016.

  • This trend is unbroken, and it is assumed that as early as 2025, 15% of the overall retail turnover will be generated online, compared to 8.5% in 2014. Particular growth was observed in recent years in the share of ‘heavy’ online shoppers.

  • The reduction in retail storage space and the growing number of just-in-time deliveries have also lead to a rise in electric cargo bikes distribution operations in city centers.

  • Further, in Berlin and Munich, Amazon has started using cargo bikes for deliveries, and in Hamburg and Berlin, Ikea customers can have their purchases delivered via cargo bicycle or rent cargo bicycles for their use.

  • The online retail stores and companies are thus focused on business expansion in critical geographical regions to expand their business reach. For instance, in October 2018, UPS expanded its electric cargo bicycles for deliveries in Seattle.
