Electric Scooter Statistics: Growth, Trends, and Insights

With the increasing popularity of e-scooters for personal transportation and micro-mobility solutions, understanding the statistics on electric scooters has become more important than ever. Electric scooter statistics can be broken down into a few key topics: adoption and usage rates, safety and injury data, and environmental impact.

Adoption and Usage Rates:
Within the past five years, electric scooter companies like Bird, Lime, and Spin have revolutionized urban transportation by providing affordable, convenient, and eco-friendly alternatives to traditional transportation methods. As a result, the global electric scooter market is expected to reach $41.98 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period. Here are some notable statistics on e-scooter adoption and usage:

  • There were an estimated 50 million registered e-scooters worldwide in 2019
  • In the US, there were 86,000 shared e-scooters in 250 cities and towns in 2019
  • In Europe, the number of e-scooter users increased by 116% between 2018 and 2020
  • 28% of American e-scooter users consider themselves first-time riders, indicating a strong potential for continued growth in the market

Safety and Injury Data:
As electric scooters gain more traction among urban residents, there have been increasing concerns regarding safety and potential injuries. Here are some key statistics on e-scooter-related accidents:

  • According to a CDC study, e-scooter-related injuries in the US went up by 222% between 2014 and 2018, with head injuries making up 27% of the total
  • In 2019, 22% of e-scooter-related injuries in the US involved first-time riders
  • However, studies have shown that many accidents can be avoided by wearing proper safety gear, abiding by traffic laws, and maintaining awareness of road conditions

Environmental Impact:
The rise of electric scooters has contributed to a decrease in carbon emissions in many urban centers. Key statistics on the environmental impact of e-scooters include:

  • It is estimated that e-scooters have saved approximately 5.6 million gallons of gasoline, resulting in a 5% reduction in carbon emissions in the US alone
  • A study by Portland State University estimated that 34% of e-scooter trips replaced car trips, further reducing overall emissions in the city
  • However, it's important to note that e-scooters in shared programs have a shorter lifespan than personal scooters, leading to increased manufacturing emissions.

In summary, electric scooter statistics highlight the growing importance of e-scooters in shaping modern urban transportation trends. Despite safety concerns, the environmental and convenience benefits of e-scooters have driven significant global adoption and usage.
