According to Eurostat, electric bike imports increased by 36% in the first nine months of 2018. Particularly striking is the dramatic increase in the number of electric bikes from Taiwan. In absolute terms, China accounts for the largest share of import growth. During the period from January to September 2018, nearly 720,000 electric bicycles were imported from China; an increase of approximately 175,000 compared with the same period in 2017. This figure has increased by 32%. With the approach of anti-dumping measures, the inventory effect of various importers of Chinese electric bicycle manufacturers has led to an increase in imports.
