Introduction to Motorcycle Hub Motor
Motorcycle hub motor is an electric motor installed in the wheels of the vehicles for improving their efficiency and performance. They are generally installed in the electric vehicles to reduce the load on engine while reducing the fuel consumption level along with minimizing the maintenance cost. These attributes further increase the lifespan of the vehicles.
Motorcycle hub motor can be arranged or fit in two possible ways; direct connection and wheel hub with an additional gearbox facility. Through direct connection, vehicle can attain low speed with high torque, whereas, through wheel hub with an additional gearbox facility, vehicle can attain speed and torque according to the requirement. Motorcycle hub motor is generally used in e-bikes, e-scooters, e-bicycles and industries where driving wheel is a part of assembly lines.
Market Size and Forecast
The electric two-wheeler market is growing significantly on the back of growing awareness regarding global warming as people are moving from vehicles using conventional resources to vehicles that use renewable resources. Further, stringent rules and regulations by government and improved vehicle performance efficiency, increased power, better vehicle handling and high torque related to hub motors are some of the factors that are expected to drive the growth of the market in upcoming years.
The motorcycle hub motor market is anticipated to record a CAGR of around 5.3% over the forecast period i.e. 2019-2027. The market is segmented by vehicle type into e-bikes, e-scooters and e-bicycles, out of which e-bikes segment is anticipated to have largest market share on the back of high torque, better vehicle handling and increased power in both existing and new vehicles. Further, the market is segmented by installation type into front hub motor and rear hub motor, out of which, the rear hub motor segment is expected to dominate the market on the back of its powerful acceleration, high power handling, better traction and high flexibility.
