“Europe accounted for the second largest market in the global all-terrain vehicle.”

Europe is estimated to be the second-largest market for all-terrain vehicles after North America. Countries such as France, Germany, UK, and Spain have a higher demand for all-terrain vehicles. Most European countries have a higher demand for utility ATVs as the countries from this region have substantial farm sizes. ATVs are used for crop inspection, farm work, and livestock management. ATVs are suitable for farm use in various European countries due to their exceptional versatility and maneuverability in different terrains. Also, a small portion of ATVs are used in recreational/sports activities. France, Germany, and Russia remain the largest ATV markets in Europe.  However, apart from major ATVs manufacturers such as Polaris, Can-Am, CF Moto, Kawasaki, and Honda, EU countries import many ATVs from Chinese players owing to lower cost and desired quality.

Further, Regulation (EU) 167/2013 (T) and Regulation (EU) 168/2013 (L) govern the homologation of both utility and recreational All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) in Europe. The introduction of these regulations has significantly impacted the ATV market in Europe in the last 4-5 years. However, ATV manufacturers have proactively embraced these changes and have already started complying with the EU requirements, stabilizing the European market. For instance, in the UK, quad bikes weighing under 550 kg are permitted for use on public roads, provided the rider holds a Bl license and the vehicle is duly registered and insured. The forthcoming years are expected to witness a boost in ATV sales across Europe, driven by the implementation of regulations to legalize the usage of ATVs on public roads. These regulations will specify specific standards and safety features to ensure compliance and enhance the market prospects for ATVs.
