Increasing adoption of cycling as a form of leisure and awareness regarding the health benefits associated with cycling are the factors expected to bolster the market growth.

The fact that bicycles do not emit any pollutants is projected to drive their demand in the near future. Moreover, consumers are rapidly moving toward online distribution channels to buy a bicycle due to several key factors, including doorstep delivery and replacement and the availability of a variety of products. Additionally, due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers are mainly focused on avoiding crowded places to prevent themselves from virus infections.

The increase in the number of people opting for bicycling as a form of leisure is anticipated to propel the market growth. Preference for bicycles as a convenient form of exercise to ensure a healthy life, free from obesity and other disorders, is expected to further boost the market expansion. The popularity of dockless bicycle-sharing systems has been rising lately. This system allows users to locate a bicycle nearby and unlock it electronically. Incepted originally in Europe, dockless bicycle-sharing systems are gaining popularity, particularly in Asian nations such as India and China.
