Electric Buses Market By Type (Hybrid Electric, Plug-in Hybrid and Pure Electric), By End-user (Public Transport and Private Fleet Owners) – Growth, Future Prospects and Competitive Analysis, 2018 - 2026

Tightening Environmental Regulations and Encouragement from National Governments to Boost the Electric Bus Market

The electric bus market worldwide is expected to grow at a CAGR of 22.9% during the forecast period. Electric vehicles have emerged as a viable solution for curbing the enormous air pollution caused by conventional fossil fuel vehicles. Of these, electric buses are expected to emerge as the most promising segment due to ongoing government initiatives across the world.

Electric buses offer a clean, safe, reliable, and comfortable mode of public transport, thereby reducing a significant amount of CO2 emissions in the environment. The most important factor driving the market growth is aggressive initiatives launched by various national governments to integrate these vehicles into public transportation fleets. Currently, China has more than 350,000 electric buses in its public transport fleet, making it the largest market for electric buses.

Other countries, including the U.K., the U.S., India, Japan, South Korea, and other European countries, too, are making rapid efforts towards increasing the percentage of electric buses in their public transport fleets. With ever-growing environmental regulations, electric buses are expected to witness rapid demand in the years to come. All these factors, taken together, are expected to ensure high growth for the electric bus market during the forecast period.

Market Synopsis

High Emphasis on Minimizing Environmental Pollution to Ensure Dominance of the Pure Electric Bus Segment

In 2017, the pure electric bus segment accounted for a larger share as compared to the hybrid electric bus segment. Hybrid electric buses typically use an alternate fuel source (e.g., diesel), making them less environmentally friendly as compared to their pure electric counterparts.

Although pure electric buses are more expensive than hybrid electric buses, they are more environmentally friendly and require less operation and maintenance. The demand for pure electric buses is supported by factors such as the growing focus on zero-emission vehicles, reducing battery costs, advancements in pure electric mechanisms, and improving charging technology and infrastructure.
