NEW YORK, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Motorcycles Market in China


This study analyzes demand for motorcycles in China. Motorcycles covered include gas-powered -- or internal combustion engine (ICE) motorcycles -- and electric-powered types. Gas motorcycles are segmented by engine displacement: light motorcycles (50 cc or less), medium motorcycles (above 50 cc and less than 250 cc), and heavy motorcycles (250 cc and above). The ICE motorcycle market is also segmented by motorcycle type (i.e., cruisers, scooters, and underbones). Electric motorcycles are segmented by type -- mopeds, electric bicycles, and scooters and other types -- and by battery chemistry -- lead-acid, lithium, and nickel-metal hydride. Historical data are provided for 2001, 2006, and 2011, with forecasts to 2016 and 2021. Aside from examining the Chinese motorcycle market by product type, this study also presents data for sales of motorcycles in China by market (transportation, recreation and sport, and other) and by region (e.g., Central-North, Central-East, and Southwest). The term "sales" -- used interchangeably with "market," "demand," and "consumption" -- is defined as all shipments from Chinese plants, plus imports minus exports. The renminbi (or RMB) is the official currency of the People's Republic of China, and the base unit of the renminbi is the yuan. The term "yuan" is used throughout this report when referring to currency amounts. "Gas motorcycles" and "ICE motorcycles" are used interchangeably.

All of the national market statistics presented exclude motorcycle demand in Hong Kong and Macau, even though these special administrative regions formally became part of the People's Republic of China during the late 1990s -- Hong Kong in 1997 and Macau in 1999. Taiwan, which is economically independent from the rest of China and not under the administration of the central government, is excluded from the scope of this study as well.

In addition, major suppliers of motorcycles are identified and profiled, and the key competitive variables for this industry are discussed. The entire report is framed within the Chinese motorcycle industry's economic and market environments. Motorcycle revenues by company data presented in the "Industry Structure" section are estimates based on consultation with multiple sources. Market share is calculated based on sales of motorcycles produced in company manufacturing facilities; joint venture sales are allotted according to each company's share in the venture. Tabular details may not add to totals due to independent rounding, and calculated ratios may reflect unrounded numbers. Macroeconomic and demographic indicators in this study were obtained from The Freedonia Group Consensus Forecasts dated June 2012.

Information and data on the motorcycle industry were obtained from a variety of primary and secondary sources, including government and trade associations, industry participants, online databases, and other Freedonia studies. Secondary data sources include Chinese government statistical agencies (principally the National Bureau of Statistics of China), the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, the China Bicycle Association, the International Monetary Fund, the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Communications, the Ministry of Environmental Protection, the Ministry of Public Security, the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development, the State Administration of Taxation, the United Nations, the US State Department, the World Bank, industry experts, financial sources, and motorcycle companies.

Primary and secondary data were also obtained from various trade publications, including Automotive Engineering International , Automotive Industries , Automotive News , China Auto & Motorbike Parts , China Automotive Industry Yearbook , China Automotive Review , China Bicycle , China Motorcycle Industry Yearbook , and Motorcycle News . Corporate annual reports, SEC Form 10-K filings, product literature, and other company information were also used in framing the industry and market environments and as input for market size assessments.

Statistics from various sources were carefully examined during the preparation of this study, and contradictions and discrepancies among data sources were noted. The accuracy and reliability of figures from each source were evaluated, and adjustments were made where deemed necessary. This was done in order to arrive at a consistent set of industry statistics, which are based on the best available information at the time this study was published. As a result, the data presented here may differ, sometimes substantially, from figures issued by official governmental sources.
