This further caused severe disruptions in supply chains and a halt in production and sales of new vehicles in the first few months.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted demand due to increased restrictions, such as the imposition of lockdowns, travel bans, quarantine measures, and several other measures. The automotive sector has experienced a significant slowdown during the pandemic. Moreover, sales of two-wheelers had also fallen during the year 2020, due to the pandemic.

The demand for improved motorcycle parts has increased exponentially due to the increase in the number of riders in recent years. Major players in the market have invested in the research and development of these products to focus on improving overall performance.

Rise of OEMs

OEM means an original equipment manufacturer. These are known as motorcycle or bicycle parts and accessories, which are usually produced by the original motorcycle manufacturer, such as Showa Corporation, Duroshox and others. The main advantage of OEM is that it provides new, advanced, latest and original motorcycle parts. Additionally, major manufacturers offer warranties for the shock absorber parts of the motorcycle, which is expected to be a major factor in the overall market growth in the coming years.

Showa Corporation, one of the major players in the market, has been one of the main OEM suppliers for Harley Davidson. Other players have also had a significant impact on the market over the past few years.

China is expected to account for a large market share

The main driver of the motorcycle shock absorber market in China is the rapid increase in population. According to the World Bank, in 2019, China’s population was 1.398 billion, which is expected to increase in the coming years. The increasing population of the country will in turn increase the demand for motorcycles in the country which will subsequently accelerate the demand for shock absorbers in the market. Also, increasing production and sales of motorcycles due to low maintenance and low cost in the country will further boost the market growth.

In addition, government initiatives such as public electric motorcycle sharing program aimed at reducing pollution, improving the health of citizens and avoiding congested urban areas will further contribute to the growth of the shock absorber market during the period of forecast. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for motorbikes has increased slightly in China, with people preferring to buy their motorbikes to avoid crowded public transport. The ease of affordability of motorcycles has encouraged people to purchase them rather than traveling via public buses and trains, which, in turn, has bolstered the growth of the shock absorbers market in the short term.
