Insights into market segments

On the basis of voltage, the global LSEV market has been categorised into 24V, 36V, 48V, 60V, and 72V. Of these, 48V is the most preferred voltage category due to its preference in electric scooters as it provides an optimal power to price ratio. However, the fastest growth during the forecast period is expected from the 72V category, due to the rising demand for high-speed LSEVs which use this voltage level.

By type of two-wheeler, the LSEV market is categorised into electric scooter, motorcycle, bikes, kick scooter, and mono wheel. Among these, electric bikes held the highest revenue share in the market, valuing over 50% in 2017. Electric scooters can reach top-speeds of 25-50km/hr, and are comfortable for long distance commuting. These characteristics of electric scooters, coupled with their lower price when compared to electric motorcycles, would continue to drive their market growth during the forecast period.

Globally, Asia-Pacific is the largest market for low speed electric vehicles, followed by North America and Europe. The Asia-Pacific market is led by China, which accounted for the largest share in terms of revenue in 2017, valued at more than 90%. The size of the country, population, technological advancements, and government support in the form of subsidies and regulations have made the country a big LSEV market in the region. China is also the largest exporter of these electric vehicles in the world. However, the fastest growth during the forecast period is expected from India, due to low penetration of LSEVs in the country.

The LSEV market for electric scooters and motorcycles in the region is relatively small due to their high price compared to the conventional scooters. Electric motorcycle is expected to be the fastest growing category in North America during the forecast period, due to increasing demand for powerful electric motorcycles in the region.

Some of the major players operating in the LSEV industry are Terra Motors Corporation, Zero Motorcycles Inc., Changzhou Yufeng Vehicle Co. Ltd., Jiangsu Kingbon Vehicle Co. Ltd., Hero Electric Vehicles Pvt. Ltd., Jiangsu East Yonsland Vehicle Manufacturing Co. Ltd., ZHIDOU Electric.
