Asia Pacific Bus market is expected to grow from 22.97 thousand units in 2020 to 42.57 thousand units, growing at a CAGR of 9.08% during the forecast period because of growing environmental concerns and increasing government initiatives. Due to increasing number of personal two-wheelers and four-wheeler vehicles on roads, the level of pollution is increasing day by day which is a huge concern. Not only increasing fleet of personal vehicle is affecting the environment but also leading to traffic congestion on the roads. To overcome the issue of environmental pollution and traffic congestion, governments are taking necessary steps like promoting buses for daily travelling by offering subsidies on buses and providing benefits for increasing the adoption rate of electric vehicles. The electric buses can play a vital role in decreasing the pollution level as use of electricity in place of fuels like diesel and petrol causes less pollution. However, the deployment of electric buses will depend upon country wise policy and also the number of charging stations in countries. To run the electric buses on road countries should have a strong charging infrastructure to avoid problems.
