MICROMOBILITY MARKET

Micromobility Market Size

  • Micromobility is "a mode of transportation that uses very light vehicles, including electric scooters, shared bicycles, pedelec, electric skateboard," and bicycles. By power source, the market's segmentation includes man-powered, fuel-powered, HEV, PHEV, and BEV.
  • By 2030, the micromobility market in the United States will be worth between $200 billion and $300 billion.
  • Thus, the average market size is $250 billion (=(200+300)/2).
  • The global micromobility market will grow at a CAGR of 24.7% during the forecast period between 2018 and 2025.
  • The United States accounts for the largest micromobility market in the world.
  • As there is no CAGR specific to the United States in the public domain, we assumed that the United States micromobility market is growing at the same global CAGR since the United States represents the largest market share.
  • Calculation:
    • CAGR = 24.7% = 0.247
    • Ending value: 2030 market size = 250,000,000,000
    • Beginning value: 2020 market size = x
    • Number of years from 2020 to 2030: 10 years
    • CAGR is calculated using the following formula: CAGR = ((ending value/beginning value)^(1/# of years)) -1
    • 0.247 = ((250,000,000,000/x)^(1/10))-1
    • Then, x = 250,000,000,000/(1.247^10) = 27,496,377,009
  • Thus, the market size of micromobility in the United States is $27.5 billion.

E-scooter and E-motorcycles Market Size

  • The 2025 global e-scooter market size will grow at a CAGR of 7.3%, reaching $28.56 billion by 2025.

  • The United States accounts for 85% of the North American e-scooter and e-motorcycle market.
  • Calculation:
  • In 2020, we calculated the estimated market size of e-scooter and e-motorcycle in North America using this calculator, as follows:
    • Starting value: 2018 market size: 154,800,000

    • Result: 255,210,000

Among these key players, only five companies are operating in the United States. Thus, we defined key players as follows: a key player is a global company that is one of the top companies (in terms of funding raised) and operates in the United States, among other regions. By applying this criterion, the key players are Lime, Bird, Skip, Spin, and Scoot.
