Global Recumbent Trike Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A recumbent trike is a three-wheeled vehicle that places the rider in a reclining position. This type of bike is often used for exercise because it is more comfortable than a traditional upright bicycle.

Delta Trikes:

Delta trikes are a type of three-wheeled bicycle, which is generally designed for elderly people and disabled persons. It has wider tires in comparison to the regular bicycles, which provide stability while riding. The design of this vehicle is more upright than the conventional bikes, making it easier for riders to get on and off from the seat.

The increasing prevalence of various physical disabilities among adults as well as children have led to an increase in demand for these vehicles over the world.

Disk or drum brakes:

Disk or drum brakes are used in recumbent trikes to provide the necessary braking force when applied by the rider. The main function of these types of brakes is to act as a friction device, slowing down or stopping the vehicle when released.

The most common type of disk brake found on recumbents is an "integral" type which has no separate caliper and relies on pressure generated by the spinning wheel to slow down or stop itself.

Application Insights:

The fitness application segment dominated the global recumbent trike market in 2017. This is attributed to the rising number of people who are opting for cycling as a form of exercise and also for recreational purposes. Moreover, health benefits associated with cycling are boosting its demand across various regions. The common use application segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing urbanization and rising disposable income among households in developing countries including China, India, Brazil and so on.

In terms of revenue, the other applications include agriculture (tilling/ weeding) bikes; cargo bikes; hand-pulled or push bicycles; family/ kids' bike; cruiser bike (for leisurely riding); folding bicycle (for storage convenience) etc.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017 owing to the high rate of obesity and inactivity. According to WHO, around 34% of adults are obese and another 68 million are overweight. The rising prevalence of obesity is expected to boost demand for recumbent trikes over the forecast period. Moreover, presence of a large number of manufacturers coupled with increasing awareness about health benefits is also anticipated to drive regional growth over the next eight years.

Asia Pacific region is projected to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period owing its huge population base and growing fitness industry in countries such as China, India, Japan & Australia (CIJA).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for eco-friendly and healthy transportation options
  • Growing popularity of trikes among cycling enthusiasts
  • Rising number of fitness enthusiasts and health-conscious people
  • Proliferation of trike clubs and communities across the globe
  • Technological advancements in recumbent trike design and functionality
