China’s E-bike Output on the Rise

Published May 26, 2010

LONDON, UK (BRAIN)—China’s output of electric bicycles reached 22.2 million in 2009, a 1.5 percent increase from the previous year, according to China Electric Bicycle Industry Report 2009.

With the importance increasingly attached to environment-friendly and clean products as well as the adjustments and regulations made by Chinese Government in electric bicycle industry, the Chinese e-bike market will expand further in the year to come, according to a press release.

Seen from regional development, the production of e-bikes in China clusters in the following five regions: Tianjin, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shandong and Shanghai. In 2008, Tianjin output of electric bicycles amounted to 6.51 million, accounting for 29.8 percent of China's total output; and Zhejiang was 4.97 million, taking 22.7 percent in national total.

Due to the financial crisis, the market in 2009 fluctuated a bit, but the market layout still remained unchanged as a whole. In the future, Tianjin will still lead the Chinese e-bike market, and the market share of Zhejiang's annual output of electric bicycles will increase to 25 percent under the drive of large-scale and cluster production mode.
