Impact of IoT Solutions for Micromobility Market
Internet of Things (IoT) has provided opportunities for manufacturers to leverage connectivity with other essential benefits. The number of connected products in different applications has been increasing. The availability of IoT in sectors such as entertainment, security, and environmental benefits is boosting the IoT market substantially. The world is experiencing technological advancements because of IoT success due to its scalability, security, and sustainability, resulting in the successful adoption of IoT solutions by different clients around the globe.
Public transportation is the primary and most common form of mobility in any economy, which can further facilitate the daily transportation of people and goods at subsidized costs and in a secure manner. Currently, a significant gap in the adoption of public transportation is in last-mile connectivity, from home to station or bus stop, and vice versa. Micromobility has the potential to provide first- and last-mile connectivity for commuters. Micromobility as a service provider has established a strong foundation for the development shared mobility ecosystem, which has the potential to ensure a high resource utilization rate, unlike the conventional method of personal vehicle ownership model. Micromobility as a service came into existence in China, driven by Mobike, a bicycle-based ride-sharing service provider.
The goal of implementing policies to encourage active mobility is to reduce the use of private cars, mitigate the negative impacts of greenhouse gas emissions, promote healthier lives, and create a compact, highly efficient, and resilient urban design.
Impact of COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic caused havoc on global businesses. Global industries are currently facing challenges from the economic side of the market. The market is in a slump, making trade activities difficult during this time. The pandemic has disrupted the market's supply chain.
In addition, the overall demand for micromobility is declining. The automotive sector is suffering as a result of global mobility constraints. Micromobility vehicles, on the other hand, are becoming more popular in some areas. Short-distance travel is common during pandemics. Furthermore, the global IoT solutions for micromobility market is expected to grow post the pandemic, owing to rising sales of new energy vehicles and focusing on trends such as connected cars, telematics, and internet connectivity.
Segmentation 1: by Vehicle Type
The global IoT solutions for micromobility market is slightly more dominated by E-bike. E-bikes are reliable, easy to ride, reasonable, and help people live and move more sustainably, because of which they are gaining popularity in several countries. They are replacing conventional bicycles while they have already replaced fossil fuel-powered moped and small motorbikes in countries such as China. In 2021, Comodule, an E-bike connectivity pioneer, released a new product driven by the rise of the micromobility and connectivity industries. Some global E-bike manufacturers are Giant Bicycles, Aventon, Buzz Bikes, Lectric eBikes, and GT Bicycles.
Segmentation 2: by End Use
- Delivery Services
- Shared Services
- Free-Floating Sharing
- Station-Based Sharing
- Corporate Sharing
The global IoT solutions for micromobility market are slightly more dominated by shared services vehicles. It can be directly attributed to those consumers who use a vehicle collectively for transportation without owning it. Yulu is a shared micromobility business that uses electric two-wheelers to help cities in India reduce traffic congestion and pollution.
Segmentation 3: by Feature
- Rider and Operator Application
The global IoT solutions for micromobility market is slightly more dominated by telematics. Onboard telematics adoption is critical for connected micromobility vehicles, with direct and indirect benefits in various areas, including cost control and integrated vehicle management. Furthermore, the growing need for first- and last-mile mobility solutions has fueled the popularity of bike-sharing solutions, leading to the integration of telematics systems.
Major companies in the global micromobility telematics market include Conneqtech B.V., INVERS GmbH, Bewegen Technologies Inc., SharingOS Holdings Limited, and Comodule OU, among others.
Segmentation 4: by Component
