Are Supply Shortages Hitting on Europe’s Biggest E-Bike Market?

BAD SODEN, Germany – With the coming into force of the anti-dumping tariffs on the import of e-bikes from China mid-January 2019, that import has fallen to a negligible number. Of course, other countries have jumped into this gap, like Taiwan. But this cannot fill the supply gap that comes with the greatly reduced supply from China. The consequences of this now become apparent from the latest data of Germany’s industry association. It raises the question if supply shortages are hitting on Europe’s biggest e-bike market.
