Global Electric Bus Market is valued approximately at USD XXX billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than XXX% over the forecast period 2020-2026. An electric bus is a type of bus which is powered by electricity. Electric buses can store electricity either on board or can be consumed unceasingly from an external source (i.e. overhead wires, as in the trolleybus, or with non-contact conductors exist on the ground). A bus that stores power are majorly known as battery electric buses, in which the electric motor takes energy from an on-board battery, although instances of additional storage modes do exist, like the gyrobus that uses flywheel energy storage. Increasing demand for the hydrogen fuel cell bus, rising focus on emission-free and energy-efficient mass transit solutions, and growing government initiatives for stimulation the adoption of electric bus are the few factors responsible for high CAGR of the market over the forecast period. For instance, in India, the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan 2020 is released with the aim to accelerate the growth of the electric and hybrid components of the automotive industry. It primarily emphasizes on fast tracing the production and introduction of electric vehicles in India. Similarly, in 2017, the Government of China paid over average of $10,000 per electric vehicle. This factor would contribute to rise in demand for electric buses around the world. However, the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic across the globe has a swift and severe impact on every single sector including automotive industry. Government issued strict guidelines on movement of public, goods & services, due to which automobile companies cannot produce vehicles. As a result, the production of electric buses has substantially declined and affected the topline of electric bus manufacturers thereby, impacting to the market growth in the recent year. In addition, high manufacturing cost is being always consider as the major limiting factor to the market growth over the forecast period of 2020-2026.
The regional analysis of global Electric Bus market is considered for the key regions such as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America and Rest of the World. Asia-Pacific is the leading/significant region across the world in terms of market share owing to increased government funding to accelerate the production of electric buses, along with the presence of significant number of OEMs such as BYD, Yutong, etc. in the countries, particularly China and India. Whereas, Asia-Pacific is also projected to exhibit highest growth rate / CAGR over the forecast period 2020-2026, due to the rapidly growing electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in the region.
