Eurostat estimates that approximately 12.2 million bicycles were produced in the EU in 2020. This represents an increase of 1.2 % compared with 2019.
Cycling promotes personal health and well-being; it is economical and to the extent that it can replace the use of private cars, helps reducing air pollution. Data on the number of bicycles produced in the EU come from the PRODCOM survey on production of manufactured goods, for which Eurostat recently published data for 2020.
The sold production of bicycles greatly varies among EU Member States for which data are available, from approximately 1500 bicycles in Denmark up to over 2.1 million bicycles in Italy and over 2.6 million in Portugal.
