The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the overall micro-mobility industry in 2020. Several electric scooter startups, such as Bird and Lime, have laid off employees due to stagnant demand. Nevertheless, these are short-term consequences of the pandemic and the micro-mobility industry is expected to revive in the near future. Moreover, the market is expected to benefit from the rising demand for more environment-friendly and hassle-free transportation options, due to an uptick in demand post-COVID-19, and favorable government policies.

Growing carbon emissions due to fuel-based vehicles have been a key concern for government authorities worldwide. Electric kick scooters are a viable, eco-friendly option for short-distance commutes, creating promising growth avenues over the forecast period. Moreover, as regulatory authorities focus on smart city development, electric transportation options like e-scooters are expected to become increasingly popular, albeit at a slower pace than passenger vehicles/buses. In addition to environmental benefits, these scooters are ultra-quiet, making them an ideal choice for cities seeking solutions to the rising issue of noise pollution. Since electric kick scooters run on batteries, they do not directly contribute to any carbon or greenhouse gas emissions.

The market presents different requirements to manufacturers based on how electric kick scooters are perceived by consumers across the globe. While consumers from Latin America, Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific see electric kick scooters as a means for short-distance transportation, consumers from North America and Europe tend to consider the use of electric kick scooters more as a lifestyle. Vendors focus on benefits such as durability, maintenance cost, and performance to retain customers. Therefore, vendors focus on launching technologically-advanced vehicles taking into consideration design/style and range and speed specifications. For instance, in April 2020, Xiaomi launched the Mi Electric Scooter 1S and made it available across China’s e-commerce platforms with international shipping options. The scooter has a range of 30 km on a full charge with a maximum speed of 25km/h.
