Folding bikes are two-wheeled vehicles that can be folded into a compact size for easy transportation. They have small wheels for better speed pickup, quicker acceleration, and convenient storage. As a result, they act as a space-saving solution for commuters and urban riders to fit into congested areas. They offer better mobility and comfort as compared to conventional bikes on account of their weight, high performance, and durability. Nowadays, folding bikes find extensive applications in sports, fitness and commercial industries around the world.

Folding Bike Market Trends:
Increasing traffic, along with the extending travel times in urban areas, represents one of the key factors propelling the growth of the market. Moreover, rising awareness among individuals about personal health and fitness due to sedentary lifestyles and the growing prevalence of chronic diseases is positively influencing the market. In addition, due to a surge in air pollution, which can be accredited to the growing utilization of automobiles that produce carbon emissions, governments of several countries are imposing stringent regulations and encouraging the use of eco-friendly transportations. This, in turn, is bolstering the growth of the market across the globe. Apart from this, national authorities worldwide are developing separate cycling routes and implementing laws to provide safety to cyclists. This, coupled with technological advancements and developments in bicycling infrastructure, is offering lucrative growth opportunities to key players operating in the market.
