There were 1129 Chinese exhibitors with booth 6098.5, which decreased by 7.23% and 4.53% comparing to the previous exhibition. There are two reasons: First, this year the North Hall was used as a place for audience registration, opening ceremony and the main activities instead of a formal exhibition hall. Consequently, the total number of booths was reduced by nearly 400 booths comparing with that of last year. Second, limited by the using area of the exhibition halls, we are so regretful that there are still more than 150 applicants could not get booth this year.

Among the 1228 exhibitors, 99 are from abroad.

With all these high-end, innovative design of various types of intelligent products, this exhibition was really a full feast to the eyes of both visitors and exhibitors.



We can see the electric bicycles and their components are growing significantly. The domestic Lithium-battery e-bike industry is in a rapid development stage. The rapid development of lithium battery industry, led the transformation and upgrading of the e-bike industry, so that its market share and export ratio were substantially increased. This also supported the developing concept proposed by CBA Chairman Mr. Ma Zhongchao, which is “Apply more Lithium batteries, make e-bikes more light weighted and more intelligent; increase the market share of lithium battery e-bikes and increase the export ratio of electric bicycles.

The number of enterprises for whole bikes slightly increased compared with that of previous year. This is mainly due to the rise of Pubic Sharing Bikes. Sharing bikes brought vitality for the industry of both complete bicycles, bicycle parts and components.

In recent years, as the concept of riding with leisure and health was deeply recognized, bikes are attracting more and more consumers. Some famous brands outside the bicycle industry also stepped in this field, such as IRIDING invested by Xiaomi company, and a sub bicycle brand of the German Volkswagen Group ,the famous European motorcycle brand Benelli and so on.

The complete bicycle companies accounted for 25.9% of new exhibitors, The sharing bike brand of Mobike, OFO, Bluegogo, Mingbikes, YunBike and Zeebike all participated in the exhibition. This is one of the future direction of those complete bicycle companies and meanwhile it also helps citizens in solving the last kilo problem of transportation. It is promoting the city’s new rules of traffic and changing the riding fashion. The exhibitors of outdoor and cycling equipments flow in and out more frequently. This part accounted for 20% of the new exhibitor as the second large part. The total number of exhibitors in this field is decreasing, which means that new enterprises joined in continuously while old ones are quitting. In recent years, equipment companies are encountering ups and downs. There are many uncertainties in the market. They are trying to find a real fit way to explore their market. CHINA CYCLE show provide a good platform to help them establish communication network. At the same time, they can also feel the atmosphere of the entire bicycle industry.
