Electric scooter and motorcycle market is projected to reach $13,864.0 million by 2025, according to P&S Intelligence.
The market is predominantly driven by tax concession on eco-friendly vehicles, growing concern for increasing carbon emissions, low maintenance cost of electric two-wheelers, and favorable regulatory environment. Globally, the increasing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have been a great concern for environmentalists and governments. This concern has led to an increase in the overall growth of electric two-wheeler sales and its adoption worldwide, thus acting as a prime driver for the growth of the market.

In terms of value, electric scooter held larger market share, accounting for more than 95% share in 2017 and is poised to continue dominating the market in the coming years as well.

China, Japan, and India are the major electric two-wheeler markets in APAC. The government subsidies are the major factor for the consumers to buy electric two-wheelers in the developing economies of APAC region, such as China and India.
