I know that such stats not straightforward to obtain, but I'd be interested in seeing numbers on the "death rate" of durable goods like bicycles and guitars in addition to the "birth rate". I just have no idea if the population of such things (per capita) is stable, or growing, or shrinking.
We sure seem to buy a lot of bikes, but it doesn't seem like a proportionate number of people are riding them.
I suppose bikes fit in this interesting niche of being a leisure item/exercise item, but because there's potential for everyday/practical usage people are more willing to buy than other leisure items? I'm not sure.
I can happily say that my mountain bike was made in America AND was also cheaper than the competitors. Although Turner now makes its bikes in Taiwan since they only do carbon. Guerrilla Gravity is another US manufacturer with decent prices. Anyone know any others?
Whoops: "About 47.6 billion e-bikes are projected to be sold globally in 2018."
I've never heard of statista. I'm interested in hearing experiences and opinions from anyone that uses it! Why is it useful for you? How does it compare to other sources for you?

It seems like 80% of the data is locked behind a paywall. What is left is interesting, but insufficient to make any conclusions.
