The rising traffic congestion is an inescapable condition, particularly in large and growing metropolitan areas across the globe. Peak-hour traffic congestion is an inherent result of the way modern societies operate. Everyone hates traffic congestion, but it keeps getting worse despite the attempted remedies. According to TomTom’s traffic data, traffic jams have increased 13% globally since 2008. In 2010, traffic congestion delayed people worldwide for 9 billion hours and wasted 7 billion gallons of fuel. Lengthy commute time is considered to be a key factor responsible for the adoption of motorcycles by consumers. This, in turn, is anticipated to contribute to the growth of the three wheeled motorcycle market in the coming years.
The World Health Organization states that the problem of road crashes is both predictable and preventable. Crashes involving motorcycles resulted in the most number of deaths among other vehicle types.

This is one of the key factors restraining the growth of motorcycles and subsequently impacting the three wheeled motorcycle market.
The ongoing trend gaining momentum across the globe is the availability of various types of bikes for rental purposes at tourism spots.
