According to the new market research report Electric Bus Market by Propulsion (BEV, PHEV & FCEV), Application (Intercity & Intra-city), Consumer, Range, Bus Length, Seating Capacity, Power Output, Battery Capacity, Component, Level of Autonomy, Battery type & Region – Global Forecast to 2027″, published by MarketsandMarketsthe global Electric Bus Market size is projected to grow from 112,041 units in 2022 to reach 671,285 units by 2027, at a CAGR of 43.1%.

The growth of the Electric Bus Market can be attributed to the increasing focus of countries on electrification of their public transport fleets with subsidies and favorable regulations due to emission concerns. Advancements in battery pack technologies, declining battery prices, government support, huge subsidies along with tax exemptions, and innovations in electric powertrains are some of the major factors driving the growth of the electric bus and coach industry. Factors such as rise in pollution and environmental hazards, stringent government regulations, and stiff competition have compelled automotive OEMs to introduce fuel-efficient and environment-friendly buses and coaches. Thus, the Electric Bus Market is expected to witness significant growth in the future.

Asia Pacific is expected to lead the global market during the forecast period

Asia Pacific is the largest Electric Bus Market in the world. It comprises some of the fastest developing and developed economies in the world. The growth in the region can be attributed to the dominance of the Chinese market and presence of leading OEMs such as BYD, Yutong, Zhongtong, and Ankai in the country, resulting in exponential growth of the Asia Pacific Electric Bus Market. The Asia Pacific market is dominated by China, which has large sales volumes for electric buses. With favorable government regulations and the increasing adoption of electric buses in public transport fleets. Asia Pacific is home to many OEMs, especially Chinese companies, that are dominating the global Electric Bus Market. For instance, in January 2021, BYD won a supply contract by the Bogota City Public Transport Authority in Columbia to deliver 1,002 electric buses in 2021. This is the largest pure-electric bus contract for BYD outside China. In March-2021, BYD UK and AXL signed a supply contract agreement in which BYD will deliver BYD ADL Enviro400EV electric double-decker buses. These buses are expected to be used on the park & Ride services in West Yorkshire. Enviro400EV is designed by ADL in the UK and BYD’s R&D center in Shenzhen, China. BYD has collaborated with local bus manufacturers namely Superpolo and BUSSCAR for the bus body parts. Also, Shenzhen was the first city in the world to have a fully electrified public transport fleet. The favorable regulations for electric buses, availability of electric and electronic components at cheaper rates, and rapidly growing charging infrastructure are projected to boost the Asia Pacific Electric Bus Market.

The 9-14m segment is expected to be the largest market during the forecast

In the Electric Bus Market, by length of bus, the 9–14 m segment is projected to be the largest market during the forecast period in terms of volume. The 9–14 m segment is dominating the electric bus segment due to the large volumes of electric passenger buses used in public transport fleet. Most of the public transport fleets, especially in China, which accounts for almost 99% of the market have electric buses that are 9–14 m in length. Also, many of the leading OEMs such as BYD, Proterra, and Yutong have been providing electric buses in the 9–14 m length range. This is the highest adopted length segment in electric buses. The driving factor for this is the battery capacity is ideal for intercity travel. These buses can travel up to 350 km on a single charge and can carry >350 kWh battery pack. OEMs are focusing on this segment for new product launches, and large supply orders are coming for this bus length. BYD offers K8 and K9 electric buses between 9 m and 14 m in length and a range of 155 miles and 190 miles. In 2019, Yutong (China) received a contract from Keolis Norge (Norway) for 88 units of the Yutong E12 e-bus model, intended for use in the Norwegian public transport system. The Yutong E12 model is a 12 m electric bus model having a 300 km operational range on a single charge. Countries that are planning to replace existing public fleets with electric ones are considering electric buses of the same lengths as well.

North America is expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period

The North America which includes US and Canada is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. The increasing demand for electric mass transit solutions, renowned OEMs expanding in the region, and government support are factors driving the North American Electric Bus Market. The adoption rate of electric vehicles in these regions is emerging and they can be considered as new revenue pockets for the electric bus segment. Countries in these regions are implementing the electric bus technologies for public and private transportation options. For instance, In 2019, Federal budget of US announced USD 130 million to accelerate zero emission buses and vehicles deployment. Also, Funding for hydrogen-powered vehicles and refueling infrastructure was announced in Pennsylvania. . In January 2022, Motor Coach Industries (MCI) received a new order from Universal Coach Line for one battery-electric, forty-five-foot MCI J4500 CHARGE coach. Sales and taxes for alternative fuel vehicles, including hydrogen-fueled vehicles, were exempted in Washington. Schemes like these by the government are incentivizing the Electric Bus Market in the North American region. Further, OEMs are also launching new variants of electric buses for other applications such as school buses. For instance, in March 2021, the Blue Bird delivered its 400th electric school bus in North America. The company expects to have 1,000 electric school buses delivered by 2022. A rising number of similar developments indicate that the Electric Bus Market in North American will grow exponentially in future

The Electric Bus Market comprises major manufacturers such as BYD (China), Yutong (China), CAF (Solaris) (Spain), VDL Groep (Netherlands), and AB Volvo (Sweden).
