Electric Bikes Having Big Impact of European Market
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany – The e-bike trend which already has a huge impact on the bike market in The Netherlands and is now starting in other European countries, will also hit this year’s Eurobike. The exhibition area that Eurobike organizers have allocated for e-Bike makers and suppliers is twice as big as it was in previous years.
“More than 50 top brands will be exhibited at Eurobike; all leading e-bike makers will be in Friedrichshafen,” says Stefan Reisinger, Project Manager. Visitors will be able to test drive new models in the Zeppelinhalle and at the new area near the East Entrance.
“E-bikes are hot right now,” says Siegfried Neuberger, General Manager of Germany's bicycle industry association (ZIV), summing up the mood in the market. In the last few years the e-Bike market grew with amazing speed. Annual sales in Germany at about 100,000 units basically quadrupled from 2005 to 2008. And the sector has already calculated in another increase for this year. Although it’s not clear how high the increase will be, experts anticipate another increase of 20 to 50 percent.
