All these factors are projected to lead to electric bike accessories market growth.

“Government Initiatives Promoting Cycling as Sustainable Transportation Alternative”

Due to rising concerns about air pollution and traffic congestion, governments of developed countries are promoting sustainable and environmentally friendly alternatives to vehicles, such as cycling. Schemes like 'cycle to work' have been promoted by the governments of the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Italy, France, and Belgium.

Proper cycling infrastructure is being provided for the successful implementation of these schemes. The United Kingdom is offering bicycles to employees at a discounted price. The government has begun providing subsidies of up to US$ 1,000 for the purchase of bicycle accessories. These initiatives are raising awareness among citizens, resulting in a rise in demand for smart bicycle accessories.
