As electric mobility solutions become more popular, one product that is becoming especially popular is the seatless or “kick” electric scooter or e-scooter. Perfect for short-range mobility, particularly in urban areas, electric scooters have become a go-to means of transportation for many city dwellers.
In February, ResearchAndMarkets forecast the worldwide electric scooters market to reach $ 37.44 Billion by 2028, growing at 13% cumulative annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2022 to 2028.
“When compared to on-demand transportation, electric scooters provide more inexpensive last-mile mobility,” according to ReseachAndMarkets:
“These vehicles' agility and simplicity of maneuvering in highly populated locations with significant traffic congestion are additional benefits that are likely to propel the e-scooter market expansion. Electric scooter adoption among the youthful population, expanding buying power of the middle-class community in developing nations, and fast urbanization are predicted to considerably fuel product demand globally.” Rising demand for fuel-efficient transportation, as well as growing concern about the alarming rise in global pollution, are also cited as drivers of electric scooter market growth in the near future.
Over the past five years, scooter-sharing companies such as Lime and Bird have given consumers an easy introduction to the use of electric scooters, the telltale green (for Lime) and orange (for Bird—at least in Ann Arbor, MI) scooters becoming ubiquitous in many city centers and university campuses. The app-based sharing system has made it simple for users to grab and ride a scooter for a quick dash across town or campus—and thus whet their appetites for wanting a scooter of their own.
