The Portuguese bicycle industry is composed of small and medium-sized enterprises employing approximately 1,700 workers, 900 in bicycle production and the rest in components manufacturing. Bicycle production in Portugal exceeds two million units annually, which places the country in one of the top positions of the European Ranking (EU-28) for the sector.
