Hyderabad, March 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to a new market research report titled “E-bike Market Size” – 2023-2028, the market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.96%. In the medium term, rising fuel costs and recent government regulations that advocate cycling as a leisure activity are likely to increase perceptions of biking as more than just an exercise activity.
Electric bikes and scooters usually have a higher price tag compared to their regular counterparts. However, the money saved on petrol is making them increasingly popular with companies across various industries, like food delivery, courier services, tourism, etc. Cycling Holidays, packages offered by some tourism companies across Europe during the holiday season, are excellent examples of this.
