In 2022, a total of 14.7 million bicycles were produced in the EU.

This figure presents a 10% increase in bicycle production compared to the previous year (2021), and a 29% increase over the course of a decade from 2012 to 2022.

The biggest producer in 2022 was Portugal (2.7 million units), followed by Romania (2.6 million), Italy (2.5 million), Germany (1.7 million) and Poland (1.0 million).

Cycling fosters individual health and well-being, and, by potentially substituting for private car use, contributes to the reduction of air pollution. It’s an eco-friendly and health-conscious mode of transportation.
