India, one of the fastest growing economies in the world, is witnessing a high demand for sports bicycles. Increasing popularity of sports bicycles and growing focus on fitness and health, and the green trend of using cycles to commute to work is likely to drive sales of bicycles in the country in the years to come. With a growing demand for sports bicycles in the country, many international players have introduced their range of products in India.
Although, India has emerged as one of the major manufacturers of bicycles in the world, the country imports a considerable number of premium bicycles from other countries to address the domestic demand for high-end bicycles. Widespread presence of a well-established network of dealers and distributors has been strengthening the position of international bicycle manufacturers in India. This also is an indicator for Indian bicycle brands to bring out their collections of competitive premium bicycles for endurance and adventure sports.
