In 2020, personal micromobility vehicle sales grew at unprecedented levels. Consumers continue to show strong demand for low cost, physically distanced, and clean transport options. Shared micromobility services have had a resurgence from lockdown lows, with historically resistant markets such as New York City and the UK deploying shared light EVs. Additionally, emerging technology innovations such as battery swapping are enabling faster micromobility market growth through reduced upfront purchase prices and quicker recharging times.

The opportunity space in micromobility is far broader than just manufacturing vehicles and the services for distributing them. Additional revenue potential is available to suppliers across several areas, including development of public charging infrastructure, battery swapping equipment and services, and solutions for docking, charging, and redistributing light EVs. New mobility as a service (MaaS) platform solutions are also being developed to better integrate shared micromobility with the public transport ecosystem.
