The Africa two-wheeler market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.72% in terms of value during the forecast period to reach USD2,793.65 million by 2026. Rapidly increasing daily commutation and escalating road congestion across the region to drive the Africa two-wheeler market in the upcoming years.

In Africa, two-wheelers are one of the most affordable and economic forms of transportation in developing countries. The two-wheeler motorcycles have dynamic engines and in combination with their low weight, these are suited for higher acceleration than many other vehicles. Some two-wheelers such as scooters do not consist of a gear box for the acceleration as they have a single gear mechanism which makes these vehicles user friendly, light and efficient. Gearless two-wheelers are also easy to ride for all ages of people. Nowadays, most of the scooters come with a pre-installed auto-start button (self-start) and do not require the rider to kick-start the vehicle. 


COVID-19 pandemic had a massive negative effect on transportation, logistics and shipping industries globally, owing to which a significant trade decline has been observed in the international market, with the World Bank predicting a double-digit decline in trade for almost all regions. Many two-wheeler manufacturing companies could not complete their shipments for exports due to the unavailability of port facilities and labor shortages. Moreover, even though some country governments had not restricted the import and export of these products, the manufacturers are majorly focusing on addressing domestic demand to optimize cost. Such measures have led to a severe interruption in the import-export activities across Africa.

 

Increase in Demand for Motorcycle Taxis

 

Two-wheelers are becoming a key trend for transportation in rural as well as in urban settlements due to the lack of public transportation infrastructure. Also, in the majority parts of Africa, such as Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya and among other Eastern African countries, motorcycle taxis are referred as Boda Boda, which are playing an important role in raising the sales of two-wheelers. Motorcycle taxis are majorly used for carrying goods and passengers to inaccessible places in a rising number of urban and rural areas across Africa. Moreover, factors such as escalating demand for public transport, simple financing and increasing invasion of cheap imports from Indian manufacturers are immensely contributing to the rise of the two-wheelers market across Africa. In Africa, more than 45% of the population live in urban areas. These statistics are supposed to facilitate an increase in the upcoming years, which tends to raise the demand for two-wheelers in Africa over the forecast period.

 

Increasing Traffic Congestion Leading to a Shift Towards Two-Wheeler Transport

 

The rapid increase in the number of vehicles on the road and the rapid expansion of automobile industry has resulted in causing traffic congestion in many countries across Africa. Over the past few years, countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Tanzania, etc., have reported a rapid increase in travel time within the cities in Africa. Owing to the increasing traffic jams, people in these countries have begun to switch to alternative modes of transportation in order to avoid traffic congestion. Two-wheelers have become a common solution to Africa’s growing traffic problems. Several advantages associated with two-wheelers, such as their compact size, ease of driving in bad road and traffic conditions, and economic benefits in terms of low fuel consumption, are major reasons which are driving the demand for two-wheelers across Africa.

 

Growing Sale of Used Two-Wheelers

Increasing sales of used two-wheelers in countries such as Nigeria, Angola, Ethiopia, Tanzania, etc., are directly hindering the demand for new sales of two-wheelers in Africa. As Africa lacks two-wheeler production plants, so to cater the region’s consumption, Africa relies largely on imports. This is arising due to the inadequate domestic production and assembly of two-wheelers as well as the growing presence of used two-wheelers importers in the region. Therefore, the growing sales of used two-wheelers are expected to hinder the growth of the two-wheeler market in Africa.

Technological trends in market

In Africa, ongoing level of motorization are still exceptionally low and electric vehicles are almost non-existent. Thereby the conventional motorcycle market is rising at a robust pace with rapid economy and population growth. Currently, in Africa, there is considerably rise in the popularity of power two-wheelers. As the internal combustion engine remains the dominant motor vehicle technology in Africa. Globally electric vehicles (EVs) and especially electric two-wheelers are making rapid growth in the market. As in Africa, current levels of motorization are low and electric vehicles are almost non-existent. Therefore, the conventional motorcycle market is rising rapidly and with fast economic and population growth, the Africa two-wheeler market expansion is set to grow.
