Key Growth Driver: Coronavirus Impact 

Electric scooter development industry was also one to be severely affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. . Governments across the world imposed strict lockdown measures and social distancing policies in order to restrict the rapid spread of the virus. 

Manufacturing facilities around the world were shut down during the initial stages of the pandemic. There has been a steep drop in revenue since the start of the pandemic in 2020. Hence, market players have tackled a number of challenges as supply chains were affected since then. 

However, all industries across the board have been recuperating and coming out of that difficult phase. Now, in 2022, almost 2 years later, we are seeing the post-pandemic era of rehabilitation.

 Electric scooter development is taking off again, backed  by government support and technology advancement. The demand created after covid-19, is considerable and people are working to increase their production capacity. 

On the demand side, Covid-19 has driven the growth of the industry. Main reasons being,

    Many people have faced financial crises in the past two years. Switching to scooter-sharing and electric vehicles in general, has been preferred over expensive fuel. Electric scooter development has definitely made this a selling point for them. 

  • Fuel Costs

    As stated earlier, fuel cost is an important factor of people switching over to electric vehicles. Electric scooter development has made commute more affordable for the average citizen. 

  • Environmental Awareness:

     Part of the growth has been driven by environmental awareness and the understanding of harmful effects of carbon emissions. People are sharing information online and otherwise making them more aware of the consequences of pollution, global warming etc. Electric scooter developers are taking this into account and creating more planet-friendly solutions.
