U.K Motorcycle Parts And Accessories market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The surge in expenditure on recreational pursuits, coupled with a growing requirement for environmentally friendly commuting options, has witnessed a significant rise in motorcycle spending, triggering a ripple effect across the motorcycle parts and accessories market in Europe. As consumer preferences gravitate towards products that prioritize efficiency and safety, manufacturers in the protective motorcycle riding gear sector are intensifying their research and development (R&D) investments to engineer products that amplify vehicle safety protocols. Hence, there is an expansion in demand for high-end motorcycles attributable to the proliferation of dual-income households, which has driven an upsurge in expenditure on premium electric motorcycles and their associated accessories across various regions. Thus, to cater to this demand industry participants are developing new and stylish products that provide effective safety while driving. Furthermore, product innovation, along with product line extension, leads to premiumization and is expected to drive demand for motorcycle parts and accessories in the industry.

Growing demand for improved sound, aesthetics, and products aids in enhancing the overall motorcycle performance, another element of the market expansion. Aftermarket exhaust systems are increasingly popular as a replacement for stock exhausts among sports motorcycle owners. The growing number of racing aficionados in the market is inducing the demand for components that can improve the performance of on-road bikes, resulting in a stronger demand for aftermarket exhaust systems.These aftermarket exhaust systems have various advantages over stock exhausts, including increased aesthetics, sound quality, and performance. Because of these advantages, aftermarket installation is a popular choice among sports motorbike owners. Due to economic considerations, aftermarket slip-on fitment is advised for individuals only concerned with cosmetic appeal and sound improvement. As a result, the vast majority of sports motorcycle owners choose aftermarket exhaust systems. The installation of aftermarket exhaust systems improves performance drastically.

Protective accessories such as smart helmets have been introduced into the European market, creating new growth opportunities for the market. Smart helmets contain enhanced features that assist motorcyclists in riding easily and efficiently while preventing road accidents. GPS connectivity, tracking systems, voice assistance, cameras, Wi-Fi connectivity, and Bluetooth are among the characteristics of the smart helmet. Smartphones can communicate with smart helmets and allow riders to make, receive, and reject phone calls. Smart helmets may also aid in the reduction of brain injuries in traffic accidents. As a result, the introduction of a multifunctional smart motorcycle helmet is likely to present the market with lucrative growth. The rising demand for luxury bikes, as well as the expanding popularity of motorcycle events and championships, are expected to fuel the growth of helmet makers.

The high customization cost of accessories such as helmets, lights, and carries is among the major market restraints hindering the market growth. The high cost of such customization deters students and Gen Z drivers from investing in accessories and parts. Moreover, the presence of counterfeit parts made from poor quality material is another factor restraining the market growth. Likewise, motorcycle noise emission regulations are another key barrier to market growth. Noise pollution from motorbike exhaust systems is a significant industrial concern. The growing traction of these aftermarket exhaust systems has drawn the attention of municipal and state authorities aimed at curbing excessive motorcycle noise. These standards cover equipment specifications, testing processes, and sound restrictions to ensure acceptable levels of sound emissions.
