The bikeconomy continues to run after the export-driven emergency

by admin

The Italian bikeconomy continues to grow in the wake of the boom in demand in the light of the emergency: the two-wheeled economy in the first eight months of 2021 recorded a soldia growth of 8.8 percent compared to the corresponding period of 2019 before -crisis, proving to be one of the most interesting and growing sectors of manufacturing and craftsmanship.

This is what emerges from the Artibici 2021 Report developed by Confartigianato and presented in Erba (Como) as part of the Craft Exhibition.

The data shows that the driving factor for the development of the sector is that of exports, which recorded an important +30.1 percent compared to the pre-pandemic period. “The bicycle proves to be a particularly resilient sector, increasing exports also in 2020 while in almost all the manufacturing sectors there have been heavy falls”, as underlined by Enrico Quintavalle, Head of Studies at Confartigianato Imprese.

It exports mainly to France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom and the demand for e-bikes has also more than doubled compared to previous years. From 2019 Italy returns to be the first European exporter ahead of Portugal and the Netherlands, with 1,747,485 pieces sold at the rate of 3.3 bicycles per minute.

A figure that underlines how the “made in Italy” in the sector is particularly appreciated, both thanks to brands that continue to remain points of reference for design, research and innovation for bikes and components (Campagnolo, Bianchi, Colnago, Bianchi, Olmo, Basso, Cinelli, Wilier Triestina, Selle Royal and many others), but above all thanks to small artisan productions that make excellence their calling card.
