  • Upsurge in Traffic Congestion – The latest report calculated that the Americans lost almost 4 billion hours owing to congestion in 2021.


  • High Cost of Electric Scooters
  • Lack of Good Road Network
  • Lack of Infrastructure in Emerging Nations

The electric scooter market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by battery type into sealed lead acid, NiMH, Li-Ion, and others. Out of these, the Li-Ion segment is attributed to garner the highest market share, wing to the superior quality of lithium-ion battery chemistry, efficient and fast charging, good battery life, zero maintenance requirements, and ease of portability. For instance, compared to the average lead acid battery's 85% efficiency, lithium batteries charge with a nearly 100% efficiency.
