The annual revenue of the bicycle industry will exceed 360 billion yuan

On November 20, a reporter from the China Bicycle Association in Guangzhou It was learned at the”2020 China Bicycle Industry Conference” that this year’s industry revenue will exceed 360 billion yuan, an increase of 10%year-on-year, and exports to overseas markets such as Europe, America, Southeast Asia, etc. continue to maintain a high growth momentum.

Seeking opportunities in crisis, exports grow against the trend

The new crown pneumonia epidemic is spreading worldwide, bicycles, electric bicycles It has become the first choice of many people for short-distance travel, and there is a buying boom all over the world.

According to statistics, from January to September this year, China’s exports of bicycles, electric bicycles and parts were US$5.093 billion, a year-on-year increase of 6.8%. Among them, 41.663 million bicycles were exported, an increase of 3.9%, the export value was US$2.434 billion, an increase of 12.0%; the export of electric bicycles was 1.197 million, an increase of 5.2%, and the export value was US$470 million, an increase of 2.7%.

“The total value of bicycles and electric bicycle parts imported from China in Europe in 2016 was about 1 billion euros, which has increased to 1.5 billion euros by 2019. It is expected to be close to 2 billion euros in 2020.” European Bikes Said Erhard Bucher, Chairman of the Federation of Industries.

Zhang Chonghe, chairman of the China National Light Industry Council, said that the bicycle industry should fully grasp the new opportunities of the European Union and other large imports of Chinese bicycles and the new trend of market demand along the”Belt and Road”.

The emergence of new business formats and the rise of new demand
