Motorcycle, Bike & Parts Manufacturing in the US

Growth for the Motorcycle, Bike and Parts Manufacturing industry has slowed over the past five years, largely because the aging of the population has reduced demand for motorcycles, the industry's largest revenue source. Additionally, import competition has intensified, leading many industry companies to relocate production abroad, where they are also able to tap into rising demand for motorcycles from emerging markets. Through 2021, industry operators are expected to counteract these trends by increasing the efficiency of their production facilities and marketing their products to younger, previously untapped demographics in light of declining sales to baby boomers, who have long comprised the industry's primary customer group. These efforts, in addition to growth in consumers' disposable income, will underpin modest revenue gains in the next five years.

This industry consists of businesses that manufacture motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, bicycles or tricycles. It also includes businesses that manufacture equipment and parts for these vehicles.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
