A hub motor is referred to an electric motor which is installed in the hub of the wheel. In this, instead of integrating the motors into the bicycle drivetrain, the hub motors are completely separated where electricity is run through copper wires for creating electromagnets, thus creating a force and rotating the hub backward and forward.
Increasing traffic bottleneck in developing and developed cities, growing demand of eco-friendly mode of transportation and government initiatives to reduce emission level are the major factors which are driving the growth of the e-bike hub motor market. Steep maintenance and purchase cost of e-bikes, manufacturing complications and absence of infrastructure for electric vehicles in developing economies are the major factors which are restraining the growth of the e-bike hub motor market. Creative drive by companies for advancing e-bike infrastructure, research & development of hub motors, increasing growth in the production of renewable energy and increasing health concerns among individuals is the major factors which are creating opportunities for growth of the e-bike hub motor market. Unsprung weight and several technical issues which can arise after the purchase can be irritating for a consumer and are the major factors which are posing as challenges for growth of the e-bike hub motor market.

The e-bike hub motor market is segmented into eight notable segments which are based on the hub motor location, motor type, volt range, weight, battery type, class type, sales channel and application/vehicle. The growth among segments helps you analyse niche pockets of growth and strategies to approach the market and determine your core application areas and the difference in your target markets.
- On the basis of hub motor location, the e-bike hub motor market has been segmented into mid/center hub motor, rear hub motor and front hub motor. In 2021, mid/center hub motor segment is mostly used as it is the most suited design for pedelec e-bike and pedal assisted e-bikes which are widely consumed worldwide.
- On the basis of motor type, the e-bike hub motor market has been segmented into internally geared and direct drive hub motor. In 2021, owing to smooth transition features of internally geared segment along with less drag and low weight of motor is driving the internally geared segment growth.
- On the basis of volt range, the e-bike hub motor market has been segmented into more than 36 volt and less than 36 volt. In 2021, majorly e-bike operates on 36V and above due to its low cost high power ratio which is driving the more than 36 volt segment growth.
- On the basis of weight, the e-bike hub motor market has been segmented into more than 7 pounds and less than 7 pounds. In 2021, due to the increasing weight of batteries due to requirement of higher wattage increases the weight of motor which is driving the more than 7 pounds segment growth.
- On the basis of battery type, the e-bike hub motor market has been segmented into lithium-ion, lithium-ion polymer, nickel metal hydride, lead acid, sealed lead acid and others. In 2021, due to the less maintenance requirement and cost of lithium ion batteries and longer durability, the e-bike hub motor market is growing rapidly which is driving the lithium-ion segment growth.
- On the basis of class type, the e-bike hub motor market has been segmented into class I (pedal assist/pedelec), class II (throttle) and class III (speed pedelec). In 2021, the class I (pedal assist/pedelec) segment provides better features of cycling as well electric assistance for longer cruise is driving the class I (pedal assist/pedelec) segment growth.
- On the basis of sales channel, the e-bike hub motor market has been segmented into OEM and aftermarket. In 2021, due to the lesser number of aftermarket sales of e-bike motors and demand for after sale of such motors is less which is augmenting the OEM segment growth.
- On the basis of application/vehicle, the e-bike hub motor market has been segmented into city/urban, cruise, mountain/trekking bikes, racing, cargo and others. In 2021, due to the increasing traffic in urban and city areas, people looks for cost-effective and eco-friendly transportation mode is driving the city/urban segment growth.
