Global E-bike Drive Unit Market: Shift toward compact crank motors

Most e-bikes and pedelecs available in the market are equipped with hub motors. Although the hub motors require low maintenance and do not affect the elementary design of the bike, they make the wheels heavy and the sealed nature of these motors increases the chances of overheating. These limitations of hub motors are shifting the focus of manufacturers toward lightweight and compact motors such as crank motors. Crank motors are attached to the rotating rod of the pedal assembly to gain balance in weight and ensure smooth functioning of the gears. They are especially useful while climbing steep hills and riding at high speed on flat roads. Thus, with the shift toward compact crank motors, the market for e-bike drive unit is expected to showcase a positive outlook during the forecast period.

“Establishing novel business models such as bike-sharing and integration of gearbox with e-bike drive unit are some other major factors that will boost market growth during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
