A report by Mordor Intelligence shows that the world bicycle market is estimated to reach US$56.16 billion this year and $69 billion in 2029.

In Việt Nam, the trend of using bicycles for exercise and transportation has been increasing sharply recently.

Data from Statista, a German market research company, shows that revenue from the bicycle segment in Việt Nam was estimated at $295.8 million last year, and is expected to reach $371.8 million with 2.49 million bicycles sold in 2027.

Meanwhile, according to the MoIT, electric motorbike sales in Việt Nam have increased by about 30-35 per cent, making Việt Nam the largest electric motorbike market in Southeast Asia and the second largest in the world, just behind China.

Environmental issues and fluctuations in petrol prices are also factors that affect consumer demand for electric vehicles, which are expected to increase sharply in the near future. — VNS
