Micromobility Market Dynamics:

Increase in venture capital and strategic investments:

Significant increase in carpooling preference among car-poolers is a key factor contributing to the growth of carpooling and carpooling. In addition, the proliferation of services offered by major players in the micromobility market, including Uber and Ola, and the ability to choose convenient pick-up and drop-off locations are encouraging consumers to choose services. Carpooling and carpooling. In addition, the significant increase in the number of carpooling services and many carpooling services such as bike sharing and car sharing even for short distances are driving the growth of micro mobile market. In addition, carpooling service providers offer benefits such as affordable door-to-door pickup and drop-off, passenger travel information, and greater convenience than service providers. Traditional carpooling. This will boost demand for carpooling services. In addition, several service providers offer various facilities, offers, and discounts, such as monthly pass on shared ride, to reduce the expenses of daily commuters.


Stakeholders have invested more than $5.7 billion in micro mobile start-ups since 2015, with more than 85% targeting China. The micromobility market has acquired a solid customer base and is about two to three times faster than car sharing or carpooling. For example, within a few years, several micro-mobility start-ups had cumulative valuations in excess of $1 billion. Two circumstances are the source of this accelerated expansion. First, most shared micromobility launches happen in enabling environments. Urban consumers have come to appreciate and use shared mobility solutions, such as car sharing, carpooling, and email.


Lower break-even points favouring the economies:

The economy of shared micro-mobility is largely favourable for companies in the industry. Companies are finding it much easier to scale up micro-mobility assets (e.g. e-bikes) than car-based sharing solutions. For example, the current acquisition cost for an electric scooter is around $400, compared to the thousands of dollars needed to buy a car. So while today's car-sharing solutions take several years to become economically viable, an outside case estimate from a leader in shared mobility suggests a car scooter can break even in less than four months.

The struggle of service providers of Micromobility:

The global strike is having a profound effect on service provider ratings, industry employed workers and the pace of industry consolidation. For example, the value of a company that operates a global network of e-bikes and e-scooters recently dropped by 79%. Another supplier halted operations in six US cities and all European markets, laying off 30% of its workforce. A third company has reduced staff hours by 60% while providing a streamlined fleet of scooters for healthcare workers in Germany. The shutdown has also prompted consolidation moves in the industry. For example, a micromobility company recently acquired the e-bicycle and e-scooter business of a major ride hailing company.


Cities are providing extra assist for cycling:

Worldwide, the lockdown has pushed new citywide policies. One foremost end result is an improved awareness on bicycle lanes. Consider the following:

  • Milan has introduced that 35 kilometers of streets formerly utilized by automobiles may be transitioned to taking walks and biking lanes after the lockdown is lifted.
  • Paris will convert 50 kilometers of lanes normally reserved for automobiles to bicycle lanes. It additionally plans to invest $325 million to replace its bicycle network.
  • Brussels is popping forty kilometers of vehicle lanes into cycle paths.
  • Seattle completely closed 30 kilometers of streets to maximum vehicles, supplying extra area for human beings to stroll and biking following the lockdown.
  • Montreal introduced the advent of extra than 320 kilometers of latest pedestrian and bicycle paths throughout the city.


COVID Impact Analysis:

As the pandemic broke out in some places, it was only natural that people would start traveling again. According to Apple's analysis of iPhone data, passenger- kilometres travelled by private and shared micro-vehicle have decreased by about 60-70% in Europe and the United States. Interestingly, the same data source showed U shape recovery; extrapolating this trend suggests a recovery to pre-crisis tourism levels in 2021-22.


To determine if and when the micromobility will recover, we conducted a global consumer survey in May 2020. It included more than 7,000 respondents from seven global markets. Demand: China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom and the United States. Our goal is to study consumer behaviour and expectations about mobility before, during, and after the crisis which is done in reports.  


According to consumer survey by Micromobility Council, the use of micromobility could increase. It shows that the number of respondents willing to regularly use micromobility in the next normal will increase by 9% for the private micromobility and 12% for the general micromobility compared to pre-crisis levels. Given these trends, we believe private and shared micromobility solutions will fully recover passenger kilometres travelled, with no significant decline from pre-crisis levels. We also believe that overall mobility will fully return to pre-crisis levels.


Micromobility Market Segmentation:

Android Segment is dominating the market in terms of user base:

Based on the type of vehicle, the micromobility market is divided into electric kick scooters, electric skateboards and electric bicycles. The electric bicycle segment dominated the market in 2023, accounting for more than 85% of global sales. The segment is expected to register over 14.3% CAGR over the forecast period as it is the cheapest and most convenient alternative to public transport. Some countries are working to encourage the use of electric bicycles, using both regulatory and subsidy changes to reduce the burden on public transport. In addition, compared to other transportation systems such as buses and taxis, electric bicycles are easier to charge, cheaper and do not require a large investment to support the infrastructure. Hence, an increase in the demand for electric bicycles across the world is being observed.


The electric scooter segment is expected to post the second highest CAGR of 10.3% during the forecast period. The demand for these scooters has increased since 2017 due to the strong investment by the players in the shared electric scooter market when it was still in the transition phase. The scooter sharing market is currently undergoing a dynamic development with the entry of global companies such as Uber Technologies, Inc.; Bird, Inc.; Lyft; and Lime operate in the on-demand transportation industry.

Micromobility Market Regional Insights:

In 2023, the Asia Pacific region dominated the micromobility market, accounting for more than 45% of worldwide revenue. The majority of micromobility car manufacturers are based in Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America. These companies make money by selling their products around the world, either through their own distribution channels or through OEMs. Governments in countries like India, China, and Japan are establishing standards and rules for vehicle charging infrastructure, which is likely to boost regional market growth. Furthermore, over the projection period, Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market.


The demographic characteristics of consumers vary by area. Drivers of electric kick scooters in North America and Europe tend to see them as a way of life, but those in Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific see them as a practical mode of transportation. Consumer happiness, which can be measured using a variety of metrics such as performance, maintenance costs, and durability, is a critical consideration for businesses looking to keep or gain new consumers. Vendors attempting to attract customers during the debut of any car, on the other hand, focus on two primary factors: design/style and specifications. Micromobility may theoretically include all passenger travels of fewer than 8 kilometres (5 miles), which represent for 50 to 60% of total passenger miles travelled in China, Europe, and the United States today. Micromobility solutions, for example, may cover around 20% of public transportation travel (in addition to addressing the first- and last-mile gap) as well as all journeys taken by private bike, moped, scooter, or foot today.


However, SMR anticipate that shared micromobility will only use 8 to 15% of this hypothetical market. Customer acceptance, weather conditions, age fit, and micromobility's lesser presence in rural areas are all factors that limit its applicability for relevant mobility use cases (for example, limited room when going shopping).
