Micro-mobility Market Challenges
Lack of infrastructure and regulation
Many countries including India do not have proper infrastructure such as adequate side-walks or dedicated bicycle lanes to avail the micro mobility transportation mode, which is creating chaos inside the city. Government needs to build pedestrian friendly footpaths and contribute for the dedicated lanes and parking spaces for micro mobility. On the other hand, lack of public awareness for road safety have made the two wheelers the most dangerous mode of transportation which is triggering bans and restrictions on operation of E-scooters/bikes. Moreover, lack of regulations in many countries such as China has caused oversaturation of the market with millions of bicycles piling up in the city street. Now, Government has implemented stringent policies for micro-mobility which is restraining the market.
