Why Are Bicycle Sales Declining (for the 14th year)? | The Bicycle Shop business in the U.S. is tough. Margins are thin, future sales tough to predict, good employees hard to find, and manufacturers refuse to protect bricks & mortar dealers from lower price online competitors.

To owners, shops often seem more a labor of love than a source of income[1]. The National Bicycle Dealers Association (NBDA) recently published a report that really brings this to light. It focused on the continuing decline of bicycling and bicycle sales in the U.S. for the past 12 to 14 years. In 2000, 43.1 million people rode bicycles six or more days which is 148 riders per thousand population; by 2014 this had declined to 35.6 million or 111 riders per thousand[2]. In 2005, 67 bicycles were sold per thousand people and in 2014 this had fallen to 57 per thousand[3]. None of this is new. Myopic Vision? I often wonder if the major impediment to sales growth is that U.S. shops are largely and often exclusively focused on recreation rather than transportation. Facts & Figures - Bike Works.

U.S. Bicycle Industry - Statistics & Facts. In 2014, the U.S. market for bicycles was sized at around six billion U.S. dollars.

Although U.S. -based manufacturers like Trek, Specialized or Redline are popular bike brands in the United States, the majority of products are manufactured abroad: Around 99 percent of bicycles sold in the United States are imported from China and Taiwan. Between January and April 2014, 26-inch bicycles formed the most important category of U.S. bicycle imports. Around 18 million units of bicycles were sold in the U.S. in 2014. Mountain bikes were the biggest sellers in 2012, with a quarter of all specialty bike sales falling into this category.

This trend can be explained by the fact that whilst bicycling has faded as a pastime in recent years, it has grown as a sport. By 2016, some 400,000 units of electric bikes are expected to be sold to customers in the United States. This text provides general information.
