Alternatives / More Australian Cycling Data and Statistics

Australia is a comparatively small market and distributers and brands do no share data. Officially the number of Adult bicycles and children’s bicycle imports are recorded though the type of bike is not distinguished. The trade organisation for Australia is Bicycle Industries Australia and some bike shops and distributers are members. They can provide import statistics though future detailed statistics is not formally recorded.

IBIS Reports also release some data on the Australian cycling market ($995). This is compact and general with estimates on total sales volume and broader trends though without details such on bike and market segmentation.

Further data and statistic is only available by conducting market research. Care should be taken with this as the cycling participation rates in Australia are comparatively low so when a market research agency interviews 100 people (for example), only a small percentage could be active bike riders or part of your target audience.
