Market Size & Trends

The global electric scooter lift and carrier market size was valued at USD 154.5 million in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.8% from 2023 to 2030. Vehicle mobility lift is an equipment that helps physically impaired persons carry their scooters or wheelchairs along with them while traveling long distances. Moreover, lifts are attached to the exterior of the vehicle. Thus, the ease of carrying the scooter or wheelchairs coupled with the growing demand for mobility scooters is propelling the market growth.

In addition, the development of innovative product offerings to meet the basic mobility requirements is driving the demand. Previously, lifting equipment had to be operated manually. However, vendors have started leveraging the advances in technology to incorporate various features and automate these devices. For instance, advancements in hydraulics have helped in simplifying and entirely automating the lifting process. Owing to the aforementioned benefits, there has been an increasing demand for electric scooter lifts and carriers.

The improvements in functionalities coupled with technological advancements pertaining to material strength, electronic control systems, and crane systems have proved pivotal in increasing product demand. Moreover, incentives and initiatives by various governments and NGOs to promote the use of electric scooters are expected to positively impact the market growth over the forecast period.

The growing adoption of mobility electric scooters is also expected to positively impact the demand for lifts and carrier systems. Mobility electric scooters are vehicles that are extensively used for short-distance travel, mainly by people with difficulties in physical movements. Moreover, increasing cases of obesity across the globe are further anticipated to fuel the need for mobility electric scooters, thereby supporting market growth.

The lift and carrier equipment provides a safer, easier, and cost-effective solution for carrying electric vehicles for long distances. Electric scooter lifts & carriers are majorly used by physically impaired people to lift the electric scooter or wheelchairs. The advantageous features of electric scooter lift & carrier elevators help boost its demand in the market. For instance, the hitch-mounted and wheeled electric scooter lift & carrier elevators attached to the exterior of commercial vehicles such as vans, cars, buses, or trucks save boot space; they are easy to install and operate, and are cost-effective. Thus, these features are driving the demand for the electric scooter lift & carrier in the market.

Besides, the governments are taking various initiatives by changing policies and providing incentives & subsidies to increase the adoption of electric scooters. The government is providing various incentives and tax exemptions to encourage automakers to manufacture electric vehicles. For instance, in 2021, one of the prominent players in the automobile industry - Hero Electric, slashed the price of its electric scooter by 12% to 33% in India. The decline in the price range is due to an increase in the government subsidiary provided through the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles (FAME) II policy. The reduced price of the scooters is likely to encourage consumers to purchase electric scooters, which is anticipated to boost the demand for electric scooter lifts and carriers in the market.

The key manufacturers of the electric scooter lift and carriers market are majorly focusing on developing technologically advanced products in the market. They are developing the automatic lift and carrier over manual-operated counterparts. The automatic electric scooter lifts & carriers have many advantageous features, such as ability to carry heavy scooters, ease of operation, quicker installation in vehicles, and negligible maintenance requirement. Additionally, the automatic electric scooter lift & carriers fold vertically against the vehicle and are economical compared to other lifting and carrying equipment, thus widely preferred by consumers in the market.

Type Insights

The exterior segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 64.5% in 2022 and is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the benefits offered by the equipment, such as saving boot space. For smaller cars and sedans, electric scooter lifts and carriers have to be hitch-mounted on the rear of the vehicle. However, such exterior systems are suspended directly for carrying small-sized scooters or rested on a platform installed externally for carrying larger scooters.

The interior segment is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to the safety provided by these tools against the risks involved in transporting the scooter externally, as a failure in the lift component can considerably damage the mobility scooter or wheelchair. These types of systems are usually preferred for large-sized cars, such as SUVs and cars having more boot space.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 41.0% in 2022 and is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The prominent players in the electric scooter lift and carrier market based in North America are working on developing advanced products to maintain their dominance across the world.

In October 2021, Harmar Mobility was honored for Highlander II, in HME Business’s 2021 New Product Award competition. Highlander II is a new generation vertical platform lift(VPL) equipment with updated designs and advanced technology. The new technologies incorporated in the Highlander II have increased ease of operation, enhanced reliability, and reduced the number of potential visits.

Additionally, there are stringent regulatory guidelines pertaining to the production, transportation, and handling of electric scooters, which are governed by the Department of Transportation (DoT) and local bodies in the U.S. Thus, to comply with the rules and regulations of handling and transportation of electric scooters there is an increase in the demand of the electric scooter lift and carriers in the region.

Europe is expected to witness significant growth in the market during the forecast period. The increasing demand for electric scooters in the region is fueling the adoption of lifting equipment in the market. The high demand for electric scooters is due to government policies to combat air combustion and the growing trend of rental-sharing services in the region.

The key manufacturers of the electric scooter market based in Europe are providing an extensive range of rental electric scooters at minimal prices. The rental electric scooter has eliminated the total cost of the ownership and maintenance cost which makes it the most viable option for transport, thus they are widely preferred over other electric alternatives in the market. Increasing demand for electric vehicles has cascading effects on the sales of electric scooters and lift & carriers in the market.
