Impact of COVID-19 on the Asia-Pacific Electric Scooter Market
The COVID-19 pandemic negatively affected numerous branches of the economy, including significant effects on the urban transport industry. The pandemic severely impacted several sectors, including the automotive sector, with major manufacturers shutting down their operations completely or operating at reduced capacities following the directives issued by their respective governments.

This crisis caused structural shifts that had significant implications on the market.
In 2019, the global sales count of electric scooters, including e-scooters and bikes, had crossed 45 million units. However, the COVID-19 outbreak resulted in disrupted supply chains, reduced operations and limited workforces, and factory closures. This caused a severe decline in vehicle sales, especially in the electric vehicles segment. However, the electric scooters market is expected to recover quickly due to the strong market growth in China.
According to predictions, developed areas in China are poised to have a strong recovery. Aggressive government initiatives for stabilizing the automobile industry are anticipated as the key factor in triggering the adoption rate in the coming years. For instance, the Government of India announced an amendment to the FAME-II policy, in which electric two-wheeler makers can give a discount of almost 40% of their scooters or bike value.
Governments of Asian countries are planning to make bicycles a major part of transportation facilities. For instance, The Revitalization Council of Hachijo Island, in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Japan, started an electric bicycle rental service utilizing green energy. These electric bicycles use geothermal power and wind power generated by a windmill in the town hall and can run for about 15 kilometers on a single charge. The charging points for these electric bicycles are located at hot springs, supermarkets, and other locations, and their use is included in the ¥2,500 (about USD 30) daily rental fee.
