An electric bike charging station, also called charging point or electric recharging point supplies electric energy to charge electric bike and electric scooters/ motorcycles. Moreover, the charging station sites can be residential, non-residential, or commercial.
Increasing population is leading to depletion of the ozone layer, which has compelled various countries to take measures to minimize the greenhouse effect by adopting alternative sources of energy: one such step is the introduction of electric bikes and electric vehicles. Furthermore, government-owned companies are entering into partnerships to develop and install electric bike charging station. For instance, in March 2020, National Thermal Power Corporation Limited, an Indian government-owned electric utility company and Rajasthan Electronics & Instruments Ltd. (REIL), an India-based miniratna company, signed an agreement with Government of Andhra Pradesh, India to established 110 electric vehicle charging stations at an approximate cost of US$ 4.29 million.
Furthermore, increasing deployment of e-bike charging stations at tourist and public areas is expected to boost the market growth. For instance, in October 2019, Robert Bosch GmbH, installed electric bike charging stations at touring hotspots across Europe.
However, lack of charging infrastructure is one the major challenge for the global e-bike charging station market growth. According to CMI analysis, India requires a widespread charging infrastructure to meet the growing adoption of e-bike (electric bike). In addition to more charging stations, the lack of space is also a challenge for the global e-bike charging station market. Therefore, these factors are expected to challenge the growth of the global e-bike charging station market.
The global E-bike charging station market accounted for US$ 2,715.23 Mn in terms of value in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% for the period 2021-2028.
Global E-bike Charging Station Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
The outbreak of COVID-19 is expected to negatively influence the global e-bike charging station market growth. Initially, in the pandemic few companies witnessed decreased sales of conventional bicycles and e-bikes as the global supply chain was disrupted by lockdown orders and bike stores were forced to close. However, after lockdown, sales are booming globally, with several buyers opting for electric bikes for the first time. For instance, the U.S.-based bike retailer, Lectric eBikes, reported a 140% increase in sales between March 2020 and May 2020. Additionally, Aventon Bikes, based in Ontario, California, claims to be flooded with orders, with sales up in Massachusetts (+298%), California (+85%), and New York (+164 %). Thus, the demand for e-bike charging station is estimated to increase during the forecast period (2021-2028).
Asia Pacific held dominant position in the global e-bike charging station market in 2019, accounting for 41.7% share in terms of value, followed by Europe and North America.

Figure 1: Global E-bike Charging Station Market Share (%), By Region, 2019
Among regions, Asia Pacific held dominant position in the global e-bike charging station market in 2019, and is estimated to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period, owing to the high demand for energy-efficient and emission-free electric two-wheelers making charging infrastructure as a necessity for increasing two wheeler vehicle sales in the region. For instance, in April 2021, Ola Electric, a subsidiary of Ola Mobility set up 100 thousand charging stations across 400 cities. The company is also setting up a hyper charging network that will allow individuals to charge their Ola scooters across any location which will be five to10 minutes away. These hyper charging towers in high streets, high-density areas, and stations are in partnership with several fuel companies.
Major players operating in the global e-bike charging station market include Amezeus (HFS Group), Ather Energy, Bikeep, CYCLE WORKS, EV Motors India Pvt. Ltd, Robert Bosch GmbH, RTL, Spelsberg, SWIFTMILE, and Zoov.
Among vehicle type segment, e-bike segment held the highest market share in the year 2020 and is expected to retain its market share over the forecast period. The increase in sales of e-bike can boost the global e-bike charging station market. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights analysis, in Europe 2,088,000 e-bike units sold in 2017 and 3,332,000 e-bike units sold in 2019 with a growth of 59.6%.

Electric bike charging station operates through charging point or electric recharging point. The electric charging station is supported by apps which allows all electric vehicle (EV) owners to locate and check availability of the nearest charging stations in real-time. Moreover, the charging stations can be deployed in residential markets, commercial/workplace properties, and others.
Increasing focus of Indian government on trials of rental e-bikes, is expected to boost the market of e-bike charging station in the country. The increased number of e-bikes will create demand for e-bike charging station over the forecast period. For instance, in September 2020, Yulu Bikes Pvt. Ltd, an India-based company signed agreement with Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), under which they have launched a cheap and cheery electric bike facility in Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC), Mumbai, India. The Yulu Bikes Pvt. Ltd has placed 18 bike stations in BKC as part of its pilot implementation of service. The number of bike stations will gradually increase as part of its demand-based phase-wise expansion across the city in the next one year.
Furthermore, in 2020, the Pune Municipal Corporation’s (PMC) approved the launch of a rental scheme for electric two-wheelers in Pune, India. The project will be undertaken under the ‘Green Pune’ initiative and V-Tro Motors will run the project. Moreover, under this project 500 charging stations will be established in various parts of the Pune city.
Furthermore, increasing development of electric vehicle charging stations across India is expected to boost the global e-bike charging station market. For instance, in October 2020, Mumbai-based eMatrixmile India signed an agreement with Magenta EV Solutions to develop 10,000 EV charging stations across India.
